Yeah, the 4350g isn't a full fat zen 2 core, it only has 4mb l3 cache vs the 16 you would get with a 3300x, not to mention the faster clocks the 3300x achieves. I still don't think it'd be a night and day difference, but yes zen 2 has more potential than haswell. It's just about as low a zen 2 core as you can go, and it's matching haswell finest. I'm not saying haswell wasn't good, it definitely was and honestly still is, but you get much more out of going am4. M.2 nvme drives without a pcie riser card assuming your lga 1150 motherboard supported it to begin with, more pcie lanes, ddr4, not worthless integrated graphics, better efficiency, pcie 4 with a 500 series chipset with a full zen 2 or 3 chip, and the opportunity to upgrade to a far better chip down the road. It's kind of apples and oranges in platform potential. That said, they better price this CPU correctly, otherwise it's a waste, I can already pickup a Ryzen 5 4500 for 75, this would have to be like 60 or less to be worth it. At that price though it would be a nice gateway to am4.
