The Intel Pentium G3460 is a dual-core, twin threaded processor. It was released in Q3 2014 and with a base frequency of 3.5 GHz it scores a decent 91 for effective speed. The G3460 is fast enough to run most applications without any problems and it’s very reasonably priced for its performance which make it a sensible choice even when considering building a gaming PC. The integrated HD Graphics are fine for general desktop use but not for 3D gaming. Comparing the G3460 and i3-4160 shows that although the i3-4160 has hyper-threading which allows it to run four rather than just two threads simultaneously, the G3460 and 4160 are very evenly matched in terms of effective speed and the G3460 is 30% cheaper. Overall the G3460 offers superb value for money and it's bested only by the unlocked G3258[Nov '14 CPUPro]
