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]

MORE DETAILS

The Intel Core i3-4370 is a mid-range dual-core four threaded 4th generation (Haswell) processor. It was released in Q3 2014 and thanks to its base frequency of 3.8 GHz, it scores a very respectable 96 for effective speed. Whilst this is fast enough to run nearly all applications smoothly, 3D graphics performance is limited by the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600. Although the 4370 is currently the fastest i3, it’s worth considering the i3-4160 which offers significantly better value for money. Comparing the 4160 and 4370 shows that the 4160 is 22% cheaper but only 5% slower in terms of effective speed. [Nov '14 CPUPro]
