Given the likely large interest out of Intel's $120 quad-core Core i3 processor, I expanded this comparison to include quite a wide assortment of old and new Intel/AMD processors running within our lab. The wide range of tested processors included:

- AMD A10-7850K
- AMD FX-8350
- AMD FX-8370E
- Ryzen 3 1200
- Ryzen 3 1300X
- Ryzen 7 1700
- Ryzen 7 1800X
- Ryzen Threadripper 1950X
- Pentium G3258
- Pentium G4400
- Core i3 2120
- Core i3 4130
- Core i3 7100
- Core i5 2400S
- Core i5 2500K
- Core i5 3470
- Core i5 4670
- Core i5 6500
- Core i5 7600K
- Core i5 8400
- Core i7 4790K
- Core i7 5775C
- Core i7 7700K
- Core i7 7740X
- Core i7 7820X
- Core i7 8700K
- Core i9 7900X
- Core i9 7960X
- Core i9 7980XE
- Core i3 8100

All of these processors/systems were freshly tested over the past week using Ubuntu 17.10 in its daily image form paired with the Linux 4.13 kernel, GCC 7.2 code compiler, and enforcing the performance governor. All of the systems were using their maximum number of supported memory channels at the maximum supported frequency. Each system had its freshly installed Ubuntu 17.10 image. The precise details on this mass assortment of tested systems can be found below.

The Phoronix Test Suite makes all this Linux CPU benchmarking possible thanks to its test standardization and automation from test setup and installation to execution and result aggregation. Later on in this article is the OpenBenchmarking result ID if you wish to see how your own Linux system(s) compare to all these setups in a side-by-side manner using the Phoronix Test Suite.

Additionally, following these raw benchmark results are also some performance-per-dollar metrics for these newer AMD Ryzen and Intel Core CPUs.
