Notes

We have put in all relevant CPUs in the sub-$250 market. You will notice that Ryzen 7, Ryzen Threadripper, and Core i7/Corei9 are not included, for the sake of brevity and context, but you can see their results in a bigger round-up right over here.

Instead, we have added the Core i3-8350K and Core i3-8100 into the results mix, offering an apples-to-apples comparison of the latest technology occupying the budget end of the market. We have also run a number of applications solely on the integrated graphics present on the Ryzen G-series and comparison Core i3 CPUs.

A word that needs to be said on testing and stability. In the interests of full disclosure, we had a torrid time when first testing the new chips last week. Significant instability, random reboots and pull-your-hair-out moments only abated once we fiddled around with the BIOS extensively. At the end of testing stability was better, markedly so, but we had hoped for rock-solid performance from the get-go.
