    As before, the Ryzen 3 1300X will operate at a base frequency of 3.5GHz with a boost frequency of 3.7GHz, while the slightly lower-end 1200 drops that to 3.1GHz with a 3.4GHz boost. Both parts are unlocked, so the pricier 1300X seems less attractive to us at $130, which is only $40 away from the SMT-enabled R5 1400. At $110, the R3 1200 offers $60 in savings over the R5 1400 and seems like a better buy for budget builders.

    We're curious to see how much slower the SMT-less Ryzen 3 processors are, particularly when compared to similarly priced Intel CPUs. Doing this is a little tricky because as we explained before, Intel's CPUs make little sense here and the $80 Pentium G4560 eliminates everything right up to the $190 Core i5-7400. In other words, everything priced below $180 in Intel's current lineup is pointless, including the company's entire Kaby Lake Core i3 range.

    Haven't decided yet if they are worth it so i will have to research it a bit more until i figure this out 100%. At this moment though it seems that for the average GAMER a 1200 is your value bet and the 1600 for the more expensive builds.
    Btw these things don't have a gpu so they can't be used in an office so they are useless for most offices.

    Very true. In the end, if you're really tight on budged Ryzen 3 1200 seems to be best bang for the buck considering that you can overclock it to 3,8GHz with a stock cooler with decent temps and noise. If you have a little more go with Ryzen 5 1600. For office stuff you'll have to wait for Ryzen APUs to come out. :)

    Yep, if the apu are not a bust and try to put a lot of gpu power and lowering cpu power they will kill the pentium and i3's for sure and they will fight the i5s for office applications.
    Office computers is a big market so i hope they don't mess it up so intel will be forced to lower their high prices.
