PC Gamer

Even with a locked multiplier, the i5-8400 delivers awesome performance, for under $200.

ComputerBase

Er kann den ebenfalls mit sechs Kernen agierenden Ryzen 5 1600X mit hohem Takt nicht bezwingen, wohl aber den Ryzen 5 1600 mit weniger Takt; Ausnahmen bilden erneut die extrem parallelisierten Anwendungen .... In Spielen wiederum kommt der Core i5-8400 sogar dem Core i7-8700K nahe ...

TechPowerUp

For gaming, things are different. Here, the i5-8400 breezes past all AMD Ryzens thanks to its high per-thread performance and the boost clock of 4.0 GHz.
