Pentium G3258 Anniversary Edition listed

Written by Fudzilla staff



Coming this month

Although Intel is all about Core and Atom these days, it still sells loads of Pentium parts for mainstream desktops and ‘essential’ laptops.

This year the Pentium brand turns 20 and Intel is marking the occasion with a special anniversary edition of the chip. The Pentium G3258 Anniversary Edition is a Haswell-based dual-core clocked at 3.2GHz. This does not make it the fastest Haswell Pentium out there, as the G3440 and G3450 are clocked at 3.3GHz and 3.4GHz respectively.

However, the Anniversary Edition should offer better value for money and it ships with an unlocked multiplier. In other words, while it does not boast the highest clock, it should be a lot easier to overclock than other G3000 Pentiums. The rest of the spec is identical to earlier socketed Haswell Pentiums, although the TDP is 53W, or 1W less than on other Pentiums.

It is a bog standard LGA1150 part, so it can be used in a wide range of boards based on 80- and 90-series chipsets.

According to early listings in the DACH market, the boxed version of the chip (BX80646G3258) should sell for as little as €65, making it the cheapest unlocked Intel chip on the market. Most retailers expect to have it in stock on June 10 or a few days later.
