Once 4 cores or AVX can be utilized, the Pentium loses. It's probably great for older games that aren't so optimized though. I personally went with an i3 for my Haswell machine and I don't regret it.
Example: this is the highest Firestrike score I could find for the Pentium (with same GPU). My Athlon isn't even max clocked, as I can often bench over 4.8-4.9GHz.
What's interesting now is that you can buy OEM (no heatsink) 860Ks now for $80.
I reckon I need to re-run with updated drivers...Edited by damric - 10/20/14 at 5:52pm
