The Intel Core i5-9400F is a ninth generation six-core processor from the Coffee Lake Refresh range. The nominal frequency of its cores is 2900 MHz. In turbo mode, the frequency of one core can reach 4100 MHz, which is 100 MHz higher than that of its predecessor, the Core i5-8400. The L2 cache in this model is 1.5 MB, the larger L3 is 9 MB, respectively. There is support for a 64-bit instruction set to implement the capabilities of the corresponding software.
AMD Ryzen 5 1600 is essentially an analogue of the familiar Ryzen 5 2600. This is nontrivially hinted at by the AF marking in the manufacturer’s code. Accordingly, this processor takes over all the advantages of the 2600. This is as much as 12 threads, six processing cores and low power consumption thanks to Pure Power technology. The user can also overclock the device by adjusting the voltage and frequencies. The processor supports two memory channels, and the total RAM can be up to 128 GB.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X can rightfully be called the ultimate six-core processor with excellent single-threaded and multi-threaded performance. At first glance, it has the typical core and thread counts of its competitors, but the main thing is in the details. Vermeer’s modern 7nm architecture and impressive maximum clock speeds of 4600 MHz allow this model to compete even with eight-core processors. The Ryzen 5 5600X has overclocking capability and a modern PCI Express 4.0 controller.
Another AMD representative is Ryzen 3 1200. The model is made according to the 12 nm process technology based on the Pinnacle Ridge architecture. Four physical cores and a similar number of virtual threads are not that many by modern standards, but in return we get an affordable solution for users on a budget. In turbo mode, the core frequency of the model can reach 3400 MHz. The processor has a free multiplier as well as support for DDR4 memory modules.

Intel Core i3-10100 is a versatile solution that suits both an office PC and a budget gaming PC. There are four cores and eight threads onboard. In turbo mode, the processor frequency can reach 4300 MHz, and the base one is considerable 3600 MHz. The integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 allows you to use a PC without a discrete graphics card and perform undemanding tasks to graphics.
Intel Core i5-10400 is a powerful processor with enough power for demanding games, streams and work applications. 12 virtual threads and six cores allow you to run multiple programs at the same time without worrying about performance degradation. The processor supports expanding PC RAM up to 128GB. Integrated PCI Express 3.0 bus controller and Intel UHD Graphics 630 1100 MHz graphics processor.
The popular AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor remains quite popular a few years after its release. The reason for this is six productive cores, 12 threads and low heat dissipation. The number of PCI Express lanes reaches 24 pcs. With Precision Boost 2 technology, the processor can overclock up to 3900 MHz in workloads. And if this is not enough for the user, there is a possibility of overclocking due to a free multiplier.
The Intel Core i3-10100F processor is a great solution for an initial gaming build. The four physical cores are offset by the high performance of these cores. It is expressed in a considerable base frequency of 3600 MHz and 4300 MHz in turbo mode. The bus capacity is 8 GT / s. The i3-10100F requires an LGA 1200 socket and DDR4 RAM modules. In addition, this model stands out against the background of competitors at a very low price.
Up a notch is the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 on the Matisse architecture. Six fast cores with a base frequency of 3600 MHz, in resource-intensive applications can be overclocked up to 4200 MHz. Such an important characteristic of the processor as the L3 cache memory in this model is 32 MB, which is twice as much as in the previous generation. The Ryzen 5 3600’s performance can be easily bumped up to the 3600X with the Performance Boost Override setting.
Intel Core i5-10400F OEM Processor
The bestseller was the six-core processor from the Comet Lake line – Intel Core i5-10400F with 12 threads. With support for Hyper-Threading Technology, compute performance is significantly improved over the previous series. The base frequency of the i5-10400F is 2900 MHz, and in turbo mode it can reach 4300 MHz per core. Power consumption is moderate at a modest 65W with Enhanced SpeedStep support. It is possible to install up to 128 GB of RAM.
