So have you read the news?

>make a $60 pentium that is actually a fucking i3
>everyone with at least half a brain buys this for budget builds

Intel just BTFO themselves by ruining their chances of controlling the budget pc market before Ryzen 3 is released. So what's your move /g/? Buy one before stocks run out and the prices inflate or wait for R3?

>> No.61323036

Press F to pay respects.

>> No.61323053

why should they buy one? they are literally killing the HT the only reason this cpu exists

>> No.61323060

It's already up to $80, so your chances to buy it at dirt cheap are already mostly gone.

>We continue to offer the Intel Pentium SKU referenced. What you have observed on websites are possibly part of a normal demand fluctuation.


Shitty AYYMDPOORFAGS FUD failed miserably as usual

>> No.61323141

It was shit anyway. So are i3s. The minimum requirement for a PC these days is an R5 1400. Anything else and you should buy a tablet.

>we're totally not limiting production on a CPU that's undercutting our own product line
>please ignore that the price is rising and will continue to go up

>> No.61323243

irony being at the price point the g4560 is utterly unbeatable.
R3s are $120 i3 rivals.
1600s are your go to mid point, i5s are poor value by comparison
then things get abit weird into the high tiers. money is less of an issue and your needs take front stage. IPC? has to be intel. Multi? AMD

>> No.61323256

you sure? i have g4560 and don't understand why someone would need more if not for serious working purposes

g4560 is fine these days, it's even pretty good for gaming (LOL, Overwatch mostly competitive stuff)

>> No.61323413

a g4560+rx470/1060 will run every game on the market @1080/60 no sweat.

one of those tech sites even listed it running upto a 1070 before any signs of cpu bottles

>> No.61323597

That's complete horse shit though. There are plenty of games where you'll see a lot of dips below 60 with a G4560. Rise of the Tomb Raider, Hitman, The Witcher 3 and Watch Dogs 2, to name some examples.

Equally, there are plenty of games that a 1060 won't handle, unless you're willing to some settings down. I own a fucking 1080 and can easily choke it at 1080p by cranking everything in more demanding titles.

Use a used $20 CPU because I don't care about the 1% IPC gains per year that have happened in the last 6 years.

I don't even use Excel on my personal computer. Work stays at work.

Intel recommends at least an i5 for spreadsheet work. If you want to do anything intensive like making websites you'll need an i7.

lol no, i5 2500Ks are still above $100 on ebay

>> No.61323828

...BUT if you use more than 3 or 4 spreadsheets/word documents at the same time, an i9 is a minimum here, because you know - ultimate megatasking.

Until R3 is released there is no poorfag tier CPU with more than two cores that isn't VIA or Memedozer

Newegg prices:
>G4560: $108
>G4600: $87
Did I miss something? Their the same thing only thr 4600 has a better GPU (But it's intel so it's not saying much) and higher clocks, so is it cheaper because it doesn't have the fame of the 4560?

>> No.61324325

My entire laptop cost me $105 with shipping on ebay. An exact used replacement CPU costs 15-20 burgers. There are tasks that I do where I think gee a new CPU would make this faster. Those tasks are done infrequently.

I grew up with a 486. Back in my day upgrading meant something. Now it's just another case of a socket change a year keeps the goyim in fear.
