What models do you have for the entry-level price-performance ratio of CPU? Just look at this.

Intel released 7 generations of Core at the beginning of the year, and the 14nm process was upgraded to the third edition. The frequency optimization improved the performance of Core to unprecedented heights. The high frequency above 4.0GHz is no longer the exclusive label of Core i7, and the mainstream Core i5/i3 has corresponding products. Based on the same LGA1151 interface, the upgrade strategy from generation 6 to generation 7 is the same price replacement strategy, and the seventh generation Kabylake architecture on the market has completed rapid delivery from entry to high-end.

In our impression, Intel will focus each generation on CPU such as high-end Core i7/i5, which is, after all, a "good way" to let people know the new core most directly. However, in the seventh generation of the core family this year, users pursuing peak performance still have high-end products such as i7mur6700K and i7mur6950K to provide the ultimate experience, at the same time, Intel also fully takes care of the feelings of entry-level users. Core i3 inherits the excellent genes of the Intel core family and has super high cost-effective, that really brings benefits to entry-level users. Instead of grading for the sake of grading, it adapts to the actual needs of entry users and meets the market segmentation. Intel's leadership and platform advantages in the industry are really convincing.

Core i3, as a volume model of Intel for mainstream and entry users within 1000 yuan, the specification of 2 cores and 4 threads and the HD 630 that matches the performance of i7 kernel display, Core i3 can well meet the needs of unique display and kernel display platform in terms of performance. However, if you want to experience full core performance, you have to spend a lot of money on K-series CPU+Z motherboards, and according to Intel's grading strategy, the minimum threshold for K-series CPU starts with Core i5, so it limits the enthusiasm of entry / mainstream users for overclocking.

This time Intel devolved the "K series" overclocking to Core i3 for the first time, deliberately lowering the threshold of overclocking and creating the strongest Core i3 at the same time. If you want to experience the high-frequency performance of 4.2GHz, you can match the B150/B250 motherboard directly; but if you want a further way to play, you can choose the Z170 motherboard that is about to copy the bottom price, and the CPU and memory frequency can be adjusted according to your preference.

A more entry-level choice than Core i3 is the Pentium series. Adding hyperthreading to the new Pentium is nothing new, but adding hyperthreading brings a subversive boost. At that time, we predicted that the new Pentium (G4560) was expected to become the most popular entry platform this year. With the addition of hyperthreading, the specification has been strengthened again, the multitasking processing capacity has narrowed the distance with Core i3, and at the same time widened the gap with Cy Young, which is more different from the previous Pentium products, so the history of Pentium has to be rewritten from this generation. To pursue the innovative leap of upgrading and enjoy the process of excellence, the author believes that this is a necessary quality for an established enterprise to maintain its vitality and lead the development of the industry.

Back to the motherboard collocation, H110/B150/B250 is the new Pentium to choose from, but to the entry price ratio to the extreme, many users will choose H110 motherboard. In general, the H110 motherboard will be limited by cost, and the phase number of power supply will be 3x4 phase power supply, so it must be worrying to take the high-end i7, but it is appropriate to take the new Pentium G4560 without overclocking. In addition to sacrificing a little bit of memory frequency, H110 allows entry-level users to spend money on other hardware.

Some people may think that the performance of the new Pentium and the i3 of the 7th generation core is so similar that it can cause users' choice difficulties at any time. In fact, Intel has a clear positioning division for Core i3 and Pentium, that is, the support for cool techs arrogant (Optane) released by Intel on March 28. Aoteng (Optane) has both SSD and memory, both M.2 interfaces, which are both designed to speed up the PC system with mechanical hard drives. But Aoteng (Optane) is only exclusive to 200 series motherboards and 7 generations of Core, and Pentium users are not allowed to get their hands on it.

Generally speaking, the CPU that Intel gives entry users within 1000 yuan mainly includes the hyperthreaded Pentium G4560 and the non-K version Core i3, and those who pursue high frequency can also choose the i3muri 7350K of the K series. Whether you choose Pentium or Core i3 starters, you can find alternative new options.

In contrast to other brands on the market, the layout of AMD in the CPU market this year is less than 1000 yuan, especially for CPU, users at the entry level of 500 yuan, which may be the last generation of Suilong X4 series. As the last generation product of FM2+ interface, 28nm process, Suilong X4 series supports DDR3-2133MHz, with two code names Kaveri and Godavari, but they are all based on the core of road roller and modular design. It may be a good choice to put it 2 years ago, but today the X4 series is getting older and may not be the first choice for newly installed users.

The order will be placed soon! Starters can choose as follows:

Throughout the analysis, it is not difficult to draw a conclusion that the most cost-effective entry models for the first half of this year are these models, with the addition of the hyperthreaded Pentium G4560 and the i3mur7350K that can overclocking and suddenly soar in frequency. then match it with H110 or B250 is a very cheap and easy-to-use combination.
