    Yes!! Dual core unlocked processor from Intel for a reasonable price!! I wonder if when Hexus review this (if they review it) if they could compare it against a 4670k at similar over clocked speeds to see how it fairs in games.

    The worse thing is that unless Intel introduces cheap overclocking motherboards,I get the impression the motherboard will cost more than the actual CPU.

    Maybe Intel Anniversary Edition B85 motherboard? The B85 can overclock but Intel did make sure they fixed the loophole though!!

    Plus with Mantle and DX12 in the next year or so,it makes me wonder how a dual core chip,even running at 4.5GHZ would fare longterm. Tis a shame that Intel did introduce a unlocked Core i3 instead. The Core i3 530 was a nice little chip.

    OTH,the new Pentium could be a great CPU for running D3 and WoW though.

    I see it making even a Core i5 4670K not worth it for a number of games.

    This was my first thought too. HT started with the Pentium, so why not give the anniversary edition HT? As it is, I can't see any reason to buy an unlocked Intel dual core chip when cheap unlocked quad core chips are readily available....

    Because people like Skyrim benchmarks using a £60 CPU and a £400 graphics card??

    Sadly,I am not joking.

    Re: News - Intel Devil's Canyon, Anniversary Pentium appear in listings

    Well, Core2 Pentiums and Celerons were great overclockers, far easier to overclock than full Core2 or Core2Quads. So the Anniversary Pentium might be similar as it should consume less power and with some much disabled it should hopefully won't get as hot.

    Being a cheap chip, I would actually have the courage to de-lid it. Of course, while a £45 chip is nice, if overclocking only works with a £70+ motherboard that's not so nice.

    Still, at last a 'fun' chip from Intel. The Intel-are-gods crowd on certain forums never did understand why someone might find AMD's chips more 'fun' than Intel's.

    Sorry, while Intel's K chips are nice and easy to overclock, I never found them 'fun'. For me overclocking was never about the highest possible clocks (which AMD's FX tends to win anyhow) nor was being a hardware enthusiast about spending the most (which seems to be at least some of the reasoning when people go with the tired old PC Masterrace arguments). No for me, overclocking was always about taking a cheap chip and getting something extra out of even at the risk of stability.

    The same crowd already state that even an Intel Pentium non-K is better than any AMD chip for gaming,while spouting Skyrim benchmarks(or results from the dodgy Polish site) all the time,and you need £100+ AMD motherboards if you want to overclock an AMD chip. I can see with this chip,people recommending them even when a potential 4.5GHZ Pentium dual core would not be the best choice,ie,something like a CryEngine 3 or Frostbite 3 based online game,ie,BF4 where there will be potentially latency issues.

    But all of them have Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs,since they know where games are heading,ie,Mantle,DX12,improved driver threading and the new consoles.

    This is why a Core i3 K series chip would have been awesome - the HT can add enough performance in multi-threaded situations. OTH,it would crater sales of Core i5 K series chips for many DIY builds,just like many people used overclocked Core i3 530 CPUs instead of a Core i5 750.

    PS:

    I also would not mind picking up one for some fun too. It might make a good CPU for certain Blizzard games for example I suppose.
