In this year’s CPU awards, AMD may have swept every other category, however, Intel has still managed to hold on to the most vital mainstream slot – and admitting that at least, it was something we can probably still thank AMD for. Thanks to the addition of two more cores, the Core i5-8400 might be a bit of a monster and well reasonably-priced. It has 6-core/12-thread design making it great for both gaming and moderate multimedia-creation tasks – tech savvies will agree of its unbeatable value.
