    In the aftermath of yesterdays Threadripper news, you'd almost forget that AMD also announced its budget Ryzen 3 series processors. Quad-core procs now become entry level folks! One thing has been mi...

    I would love to see benchmark of these.

    Yep, good little chips for budget OEM machines but anyone buying one for a gaming rig would be wasting their time really, as without the benefit of SMT, Ryzens are a very mediocre performing CPU.

    4 + 0 > 2 + 2

    Didn't some people find that with SMT off sometimes ryzen actually ran better in some games... unless that got fixed/changed

    Unfortunately the budget crown still belongs to Intel:
    G4560 2 core 4 thread 3.5GHz, Lower TDP, Integrated GPU (really important for every office or budget PC) and 40-50$ cheaper.

    What? This is perfect for a budget and even midrange gaming PC.
    This is a lot better choice than any of Intel's i5 chips for a midrange PC considering it costs about half of those chips. Only for highend PC's would the i5-7600k be worth considering if you don't want to pay ~$100 extra for the i7-7700k.

    And, as was said before: 4C/4T is a lot better than 2C/4T, so I'd take this over an i3 any time. It's priced similarly and will have much better performance overall, while having similar performance in games (for those who use it for that).

    I think there were news of Intel reducing production of Pentium CPUs to raise demand for i3.

    Not gonna happen with R3. Intel actually have to boost Pentium production not to lose customers to R3.

    2C desktop CPU is an obsolete idea already. It's a miracle Intel has been able to drag that horse skeleton along for so long.

    And here I am sitting in my office with Pentium G620.
    I'd say 2 cores is enough to write some code, send emails and use some office tools.

    Even with 2 cores, my PC hangs up cause of slow HDD reads/write and I rarely see CPU being 100% utilized.
    Maybe once ALL PCs ditch HDD and switch to SSD, we will see more bottlenecks on 2 cores CPU.

    edit: And it's not Intel who dragging it, it's always consumers. Consumers with low need, it is.

    I wonder if the 1300X @ $129 is faster than my 2600?

    wrong, with more demand for power the budget will raise.

    Dont narrow your brain to gamers and content producers.

    ....2 cores, and the IPC of that processor is much lower then the IPC of the i5/i7 variants.

    And you're comparing an APU, to a CPU. If you're going to compare an APU, then you'll need to wait for AMDs Ryzen APUs.

    I use modern vPro 2C/4T with SSD. Doing analysis is nightmare. Starting 2 qemu-kvm virtuals is suicide.

    Time when intel offered 4C/8T was much better. I mean, work notebook costs $2000 and I consider it trash.
