Fun fact, the phenom x6 was the last time amd released a true 6 core in the desktop market.

Just no times ten.

G3258 makes this obsolete before it's even out as well as Haswell, Skylake, and probably even Cannonlake i3's.

I highly doubt AMD will do less than 4 zen cores with the processor being made on a 4 core per module die system.

Really? A non-overclockable 3.8 ghz part? Why can't we have a 4.0 ghz 880k Carrizo? WTH AMD.

This is basically a mobile chip that isn't suitable for laptops.

Who says you can't OC? Just increase the bus speed.

exactly, you can just overclock it that way and most times, it overclocks just as high if the cpu was unlocked.

BCLK overclocking is a toss-up. It works but at 105mhz you lose AHCI functionality, and at about 110mhz or so you start to get malfunctioning PCIe bus issues among other things. Not as reliable as it was back on AM3/AM3+ and its predecessors.
