Overall, probably worth the upgrade from a Ryzen 3 3200G to a Ryzen 5 3400G (the system does feel slightly snappier)

...but it's surprising how close the benchmarks are!

@dajbelshaw yes, I find the benchmarks a poor metric when it comes to picking processors. Often they will show a negligible difference, but my system feels snappier for the choice. Or rather that it has more grunt, and as the application load climbs the processor just shrugs it off.

And nice you went Team Red. My choice too! 🤓

@rw Looking at it, I think it's the HTML rendering that makes the difference - most of my stuff is in the browser

@dajbelshaw That's why researchers use benchmarks rather than feelings. ;)
