    Great duel core CPU with hyperthreading. It's been running my PC just fine for the past few days.

    Would recommend.

    If you ask me (which you aren't) this is the only good thing to come out of the Kaby Lake lineup. Intel has become extremely annoying with their prices, and honestly, this CPU is a great deal. i3 power for a Pentium price and runs cool. Intel should use this as a role model for pricing.

    from completed build Two builds for last minute gifts

    I would have gone with a Ryzen 3 1200 or even an Athlon x4 950 just so my step siblings could have some upgradability in the future to a modern platform with cheap boards that support overclocking, but my uncle works for Intel and my dad said that he'd get upset if we did that so I went with the G4560 since it was too last minute to get any sort of dicounted i3 set up. That being said, it’s still a good processor, even over a year after its release, just I would reccomend alternatives

    Intel disappointed PC builders yet again with their Kaby Lake generation. Their monopoly over the market stagnated CPU development while maintaining prices unjustifiably high. Intel did, however, do something incredibly weird to their Kaby Lake Pentium line up. When I watched in disbelief that Intel had a strange flash of generosity to gift budget builders a 2 core/4 thread Pentium G4560 at around $60 with virtually identical performance to i3's, I knew I had to jump on it as soon as I could.

    This CPU lived up to the hype. It keeps up with every basic Windows tasks effortlessly. I've yet to install open world online multiplayer games like BF1 to see how this CPU keeps up, but Bioshock Infinite and Doom on 1080p and Ultra settings are easily running at 100+ fps.

    The G4560 proves that Intel can be less greedy when it wants to. The G4560 is basically an i3 but at $50-$110 less. This CPU made not only the entire i3 line up obsolete but also made the $120 gap to the i5's difficult to justify for budget gamers. With the release of AMD's Ryzen R5 CPUs later this year, I expect the i3's and i5's to become even more obsolete if Intel doesn't do some major price cuts.

    I can't say enough good things about this little CPU. It's solid through and through. I really love that Intel added hyperthreading to it. It's just icing on the cake.

    Great value!! Perfect performance for 1080p and won't make a dent in your budget. This chip really is carrying the banner (until Ryzen 3 at least).

    Cheap, but fairly decent solution for a HTPC/Gaming Build. + HT for 60€.

    As many have mentioned before - best "performance for money" budget CPU.

    Excellent budget CPU. Have not run into a bottleneck yet. The included stock cooler is sufficient.
