AMD finally bringing competition7/28/2017 5:22:08 AM

Pros: 4 true cores large cache overclocking great stock fan Zen architecture, future ready

Cons: slightly lower IPC and clock speed not dipped in gold

Overall Review: This is a fantastic budget processor. It's four true cores are great for multi-tasking, and AMD knows right where it's audience is, budget. Reviewers seem to love to say it's not as good as the i3 7350k counterpart, but the i3 needs a much more expensive Z270 board to OC, only has 2 true cores, and doesn't have a stock cooler. This CPU blows everything out of the water. The stock heatsink keeps it well in check, and leaves room for overclocking. Picking up an aftermarket cooler will improve thermals even further
