The Intel Core i3-4350 is a refreshed version of the Haswell i3-4330. The newer i3-4350 has received a 100 MHz increase in clock speed which translates to a performance improvement of 2.8%. With an effective speed of 93.5 the i3-4350 is no slouch and offers performance that's slightly above the average of the ten group leaders. Similar to the G3258, the 4350 has a performance profile which favours single and dual core workloads. Comparing the G3258 and 4350 shows that not only does the G3258 offer far better overclocked performance but it also costs less than half as much as the i3-4350. Although the i3-4350 is not a bad processor, there are relatively few use cases that would justify its price when compared to the stellar G3258. [Jul '14 CPUPro]

The Intel Core i3-4160 is a dual-core four threaded 4th generation (Haswell) processor. It was released in Q3 2014 and scores a respectable 91 for effective speed. With its base frequency of 3.6 GHz, the 4160 is fast enough to run the vast majority of applications smoothly and it’s very reasonably priced for its performance which make it a sensible choice even when considering building a gaming PC. Although the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 are absolutely fine for general desktop use such as web browsing and word processing they may bottleneck a gaming machine. A 20% price premium would buy the slightly older i3-4350 which has a 33% larger (4MB) cache but its only about 1% faster (full comparison here). Overall the i3-4160 represents the best value for money I have seen outside Intel's Pentium and Celeron range of CPUs. [Nov '14 CPUPro]
