AMD Ryzen 3 1300X & Ryzen 3 1200 Review

Our friends at Overclockers Club just posted an evaluation of the AMD Ryzen 3 1300X & Ryzen 3 1200 processors today that I think most of you will find very interesting.
As a budget CPU series, the R3 1300X and R3 1200 come in at a price point between $30 and $50 cheaper than the comparison i3 7350K. With motherboard and memory prices being equal, spending less money usually wins when the performance is close. That in itself is the age-old question. cost vs. benefit. At this point, the R3 line offers that cost competitive advantage.
