Intel & AMD Processor Hierarchy

Will the G5xxx Pentiums, as well as the Ryzen-based Athlons, be added?

Come to think about it, maybe the AM4 versions of the A10 and A12?

Low end stuff, true, but still interesting I think to see where the new bottom-end CPUs fit relative to some of the older things that were decent performers in their day.

I have an i5-3570. I have previously been told that an upgrade to (for example) an i7-8700K would see a significant improvement and would be well worth the investment. This article seems to say the exact opposite.

I presently have a 1920x1080 monitor and GTX960 GPU. My system is used for general office applications, surfing and limited gaming (WoW, with an intention to switch to Elite: Dangerous shortly).
 
That I couldn't say - as I'm not familiar with those particular games or how demanding they are.

Might be more appropriate to start a separate thread though, for that question. That way you're more likely to get people who can address that question than who would see it buried in the midst of this thread about the hierarchy charts.

Here are the prices updates to February 2019.

The size of the bubbles indicate application performance.

The labels in red belong to best buys (lower price or higher performance)



Not all prices and processors on the article are on sale anymore, so I excluded some CPUs.

The amazon prices showing for the likes of the Ryzen 2600X are inflated as they're displaying the price for a combo deal with a Corsair AIO. Not very helpful as price is a huge factor and the Ryzen CPUs already come with their own cooler.
