By far and away the best Dual Core CPU currently on the market. It comes unlocked so can be easily overclocked (I've managed to get 4.2GHz by adjusting the multiplier and it seems very stable). Depending on the rest of your components you may need to increase the voltage slightly but not by much, naturally ensure you pick a "LGA-1150" socketed motherboard which has been designed for overclocking, i personally recommend one with a Z97 chipset.

This processor is ideal if you plan on building a gaming system but are on a budget and want to get maximum value for money. Intel made this processor for that very reason knowing that it would be perfect for enthusiasts that want to overclock and the performance to price ratio is very impressive, Partnered with a GTX750ti you get decent framerates (30+) in most games on medium settings which on a 22" monitor can look pretty impressive!

Verdict: While you can use it at stock speeds this processor wasn't designed for that, it was made for the gaming community to experiment with but if you do plan on overclocking it then i STRONGLY recommend you buy a third party cooler such as the "Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo" as the included Intel cooler was only designed for stock speeds and when you overclock it, it can become overly noisy.

This 20th anniversary range of CPUs are aimed at those people on a budget yet still want decent performance. Here you have an unlocked processor which has been given a lower price point and fair crack to Intel for offering it in this way, don't be mislead or fooled there is no hyper-threading or turbo boost technology, this is simply an unlocked dual core CPU.

If you are a gamer or even a business owner and are looking for a decent dual core CPU then this is about as good as you are likely to find on the Intel side, certainly in this particular price bracket!

Little beast, that I bought for my sister 1st pc.
She is using it almost a year now.
Even though it is only a 2 core, 2 threats processor is performs really really well thanks to overclocking.
I managed to push it to 4.9Ghz, what is an excellent score for this chip (I think I have been lucky to push it that high). However, temps were rising too rapidly in stress, even on Artic custom cooler, so I lover it down to 4.4Ghz, and it is working on this frequence almost a year now.

The CPU is placed on Gigabyte Z87 motherboard, and it is working with 8GB 1600Mhz RAM and MSI Radeon 270x GPU.
In CPU demanding games like World of Tanks it keeps solid 50-60fps (sometimes drop to 40-45, for a second or two, but in this game it happens on every platform :P) . Also it plays Sims 3 and Sims 4, Heroes V and VI and Settlers VI and VII without any problem what so ever. Solid 55-60FPS.

Now few cons.
PC slows down when lots of the applications are open, e.g. skype, Firefox with 3 or 4 tabs opened, and a game. Then from solid 60fps, it can drop down even to 40ish fps. (playing World of Tanks) Which is about 33% less.
Additionally, AMD grahpic cards (Radeons) does not support Nvidia PhysicX technology. This means that all physics in games would have to be calculated by the processor instead of the graphic card. This can be very difficult for this chip becasue of only 2 cores / 2threats.

Overall...
This CPU is good for gamers that have limited budget, or does not demand as much from their PC as other gamers.
CPU is based on LGA 1150 socket, this means that the user would be able to swap it for the I5 or I7, when the preformence of G3258 would be too low for new demand.

Cracking value for money. As most others building a budget PC OC on a Z97 board to 4.5ghz. Runs fairly smoothly at max load but does heat up for it, getting around 55-6 on max load at 4.5 constantly with a fairly beefy fan.

But perfect budget solution for a media PC non overclocked. Can handle most demanding applications well considering its a only a dual core.

I have OC'd this baby to 4.5ghz from stock 3.2ghz(i got to 4.6 but i prefer to be under 1.3 vcore)

for the price this chip is just amazing..

I came from an old q6600 @ 3.0ghz quad core, this thing stonks all over it..

ive got the 212 evo on it, and temps are mid 60's which im happy with

gaming benchmarks i could give but really that also depends on the strength of the GPU

but bioshock infinite gives a solid 60fps @ 1080p on high, which looks awesome, and thats with
a 750ti which isnt an amazing gpu but still decent, the old q6600 on medium for 40-50fps so massive improvement

anyway im happy with this chip, very happy

Thanks Intel, for saving me 120 quid!
I was putting together my first new build in almost four years and I'd settled on an Asus Z97 mobo and a Core i5 4670k. Then I read about this CPU and gave it a go.

Well, if you care about the money, this is a no-brainer. Get it.

It overclocks like a charm. I'm sitting very happily at 4.5 ghz with an Arctic Freezer Pro 7. It was perfectly happy at 4.4 with the stock cooler - I just had the Arctic from my old PC.

The on-die graphics are crap for games but brilliant for video up to (and beyond) 1080p.

The one downside (though not for me) is the dual-cores. So, if 3-D rendering or Photoshop are your thing, you'll notice the difference between this and the Core i5/7 series.

The one time I really appreciate quad-core (or above) is when I transcode video files using HandBrake. Well, colour me smiley, because the latest beta of HandBrake has support for Intel QuickSync! I've just transcoded a 35gb Blu-Ray rip to an 11gb file (the size was partly because I kept the DTS-HD MA soundtrack). I'm sitting here, 50cm away from a high quality monitor and I cannot tell the difference between the original and the transcode. How long did it take? Seventeen minutes! That's incredible. Don't listen to the moaners on the Webs - Intel have worked hard on QuickSync for Haswell and it's no longer "quick but dirty". It looks great these days.

It's not often a huge corporation genuinely does something for the little man but Intel honestly have. This chip is a diamond in the rough and takes me back to the old days. If you're on a tight budget, and especially if you're a gamer, save yourself at least a hundred quid. Buy this, overclock it and spend the extra dosh on a much better GPU.
