#Cheap #CPUs #Tested #Ranked

The low-cost CPU landscape had been barren for more than a year, but Intel’s new Alder Lake processors have made a splash on our CPU Benchmarks Hierarchy, as we finally see the return of cheaper CPU models to the market.

AMD has been glaringly absent from the low end of the market, but its recent release of seven new chips includes two models for the low end of the market. AMD’s new Renoir chips take a new approach of using Zen 2-powered APU silicon with disabled integrated graphics units to tackle the low-end. We recently reviewed the Ryzen 5 4500 and Ryzen 3 4100 and found that the Zen 2 architecture simply doesn’t hold up against today’s more modern chips, like the Core i3-12100. We can’t recommend either of the new AMD chips due to the severe performance and connectivity tradeoffs.
