depends what app/program you use. CB intel destroys AMD quad core... while steamroller OC-ed 4.7Ghz will be on pair with stock i5 3.8Ghz in pov ray 3.7 and faster black hole benchmark. Yes pentium G3258 is great dual core CPU but isnt this the time where we put dual cores behind?
Pentium G3258 is really good for some programs and games which are lightly threaded ... i will agreed with that and i will recommend it to everyone. But usually GPU is way more powerfull - and for most program is better to have slow CPU and very powerfull GPU.
Why did i mentioned BF3? because it runs well on fast dualcores
Intel celeron G1820 for way cheaper, also good and perfect CPU for some users. Dont forget low power CPUs for everyday tasks. In 2015 think may get different because of HSA support... No and i dont want to support dual cores in 2015
i prefer low power quad cores which will on stage as pentium K.
