Pentium G4560 costs $64, fights Core i5-2500K at $270

Intel looks to have an impressive value for money processor based on its new Kaby Lake architecture available, with the new Pentium G4560 costing just $64 - and it competes against processors worth 3x as much.



The site has a 'total rating' of application and games at 1080p, where you can see that the Pentium G4560 and Core i5-2500K are neck and neck. When gaming at both 720p and 1080p, the new Kaby Lake-based Pentium G4560 beats the Pentium G4400, FX-6300 and A10-7890K - while just 5% slower than the more expensive Core i3-6100, and Core i5-2500K processors. In normal Windows use and synthetic benchmarks, the new Kaby Lake CPU is only 3% slower than the Core i3-6100, and just 1% slower than the $270 processor - the Core i5-2500K, which is a huge testament to the improvements within the Kaby Lake architecture.

To put it another way, the i5-2500K is still as good as a CPU from Kaby Lake, 5 generations later.

I highly doubt the i5-2500k will be that close to the G4560...

Need more reviews from reputable reviewers before making a conclusion.

The i3 Skylake and Kabylake and G4560 can play games well also. Youtube got a lot of people tested it out already. All you need is 8GB of RAM and a decent graphic card.

Why not? There are certain features in z series motherboards that may come in useful even when not overclocking, like extra pcie lanes or perhaps generally better quality.
