Budget CPU Battle Royale: Intel i3-13100F CPU Review & Benchmarks

Sponsor: Linode Cloud Computing by Akamai - https://geni.us/CBl2fS
In this review & benchmark of the Intel Core i3-13100F CPU, we're testing other budget CPUs like the AMD Ryzen 5 5500, the Intel i3-12100F, the AMD R5 5600 (which was already in the first review via proxy 5600X), and older CPUs. Older parts include the R5 2600, R7 1700, and more. The review takes into consideration new condensed metrics for GN, like frames per dollar ("value") and relative performance scaling in a truncated chart. All prices in discussion were accurate at time of writing. Any changes from what was stated are recent or are via different retailers than cited. The FPS Per Dollar chart is +/-$5, as you can basically choose one retailer over another to get that difference.
