The Intel Core i5-4590 is a slightly upgraded version of the i5-4570. The two processors are identical apart from a 100 MHz increase in base and turbo frequencies. Needless to say the two processors have almost identical effective speeds which is a little disappointing as Intel has simply re-released a near identical product. From a value for money perspective the 4590 does fare reasonably well although it probably has more multi-core horsepower than most use cases demand. For the majority of users, at stock clocks, the G3258 provides comparable performance but with a few simple BIOS adjustments the G3258 can be clocked up to 4.3 GHz where, even at half the price, it destroys the i5-4570 in single and dual core workloads. [Sep '14 CPUPro]

The Intel Core i3-4340 is a budget dual-core four threaded 4th generation Haswell processor released in Q3 2013. At the time of release it was the top end Haswell Core i3 chip – offering great value for money, performance and power efficiency. It scores a strong effective speed of 89% with its base clock of 3.6 GHz which means that users will experience smooth and fast performance with the majority of desktop applications. Its two cores and four virtual cores are adequate for most games. The i3-4340 features Intel HD Graphics 4600 which are probably okay for playing some older games in 720p and are comparable AMD integrated graphics (for example, on the AMD A10-5800k) when it comes to 3D gaming. But serious gamers will need to have enough money left over after purchasing the i3-4340 to spend on a stand alone GPU. [Nov '14 CPUPro]
