    intel has doe a swift great job of bringing the pentium back to its core potential performance

    Can this open hd videos by itself i mean without a graphics card

  • What software did you use to benchmark the games? It looks awesome.

    I don’t see who is going to use this CPU other than “those that want to toy with overclocking”.
    The low cost of the G3258 is nullified by the requirement for a Z87/Z97 mobo and after-market cooler. It makes more sense to use a Core i3 that gives the same performance without overclocking.

      I completely agree. It makes sense if you are a OC enthusiast or if you cant shell out any more on your cpu.

      Except of course if you use the Asus boards that allow for unlocked multiplier on 4 of the budget chipsets. That means as long as you aren’t going for overclocking records you can get the G3258, a budget board, and a beefy video card and have a pretty nice gaming rig.

    Sub £50 in the UK, still a small premium over the US…

    Could be wrong but isn’t 1.35 volts the upper SAFE limit on Intel processors? How long will the G3420 last running @ 1.499 core voltage 24/7 ?

    • More power means more heat of course, but I think if it`s cooled properly then it shouldn`t be a problem. I still think it`ll last longer than what you`ll actually need it for. There are so many people with Sandy Bridge i5`s and i7`s still running huge overclocks 24/7 and they still run like a charm.
