    The Core i3-7350K will be targeted at overclockers on a budget, say reports.

    After VAT is added,it comes to £171 for the Core i3 7350K which is around 50% more expensive than the i3 7100.

    OTH,the Core i5 7400 for around £190 looks comparatively better IMHO OFC.

    The Pentium G4260 looks a better prospect - at under £100. If the pound were not so weak,it would be an £80 CPU.

    Agreed. This is like a Corsa 'sports'. Designed to appeal to someone who like the idea of fast rather than actually being fast. I'd take 4 slightly slower cores over 2 cores (with hyperthreading) any day. Its even more apparent the i5 is better idea once you factor in a decent CPU Heatsink and fan to let you overclock it in a meaningful way...

    The G4260 looks good too. If it were not for the weak pound,that would have equated to around £80.

    It basically looks like a rebadged Core i3 6100 with an RRP down from $117 to $98.

    Interestingly enough it appears the Core i3 chips might have boost clocks,so if you enable all cores Turbo on the cheapest one it should give you a free overclock!

    Despite the article saying the G3258 is "long in the tooth" (which it isn't in the sense that Intel's completely stagnated), I think I'd rather pick that up at the moment given it's half the price of this (and actually can be described as a budget overclocking chip).

    A poster on AT forums noticed this:

    The G4560 also has HT. So essentially a Core i3 for around £66??
