A tasty K series hyperthreaded i3 (Pentium) fantastic move forward for Intel but that price though.. I'd be more inclined to look at an older i5 if I'm honest.

Anyways great review as always Guv and also a shout out to JayzTwoCents R.I.P AMD 8320 .

It will be the best chip for those guys who only want to game AAA but 1080p plain and simple.

Now let's see how well AMD slaps intel in the face with the 4core Zens

Actually isn't the particular model of gigabyte model's one of the worst on the 990fx chipset for overclocking? Also who pushes an fx chip beyond 1.5Volts on air (20$ air cooler even) and with maxed out load line calibration.
I don't even let my fx chip hit above 55C on the package to begin with... Also at 1.5+Volts the vrms get super hot but... I digress...

Not a bad cpu for an i3, though like you said in the conclusion the price is a bit too close to the 7600k that I'd consider the extra as a better future investment

I think you can get similar performance with the Pentium 2 core 4 thread and much cheaper

I3s always had hyperthreading. It's the pentiums that got hyperthreading with kaby lake. So the only difference to the previous generation is the unlocked part and of course the kaby lake architecture.

neat idea, bad price. These should have been under £150. I guess Intel are milking every last penny they can out of consumers before they have to drop their prices to compete with AMD and pull their finger out their a**es and make an innovative CPU.

I'm somewhat tempted by this CPU, the games I play aren't really optimised for multiple cores, 2C4T would be a perfect compromise for them.

So the Pentium Anniversary was what? £60? so this is that with HT and it's £185. Erm, let's see, £125 for two not even proper cores.

And the thing is this will be outdated just as quickly as the Pentium was.

Funny seeing people trying to justify an I3 for £185 though. Seriously guys, it's a hopeless cause. You will never ever convince any one.
