But can these be overclocked? If not, we are not very much interested. The stock performance is so-so for a true octa-core, especially in ST.
They can't be overclocked.....but they are also very cheap.
With that mentioned, It is unfortunate that Intel leaves such a large performance per dollar void between G3258 and the unlocked Core i5 processors.
Maybe if they had something better in the $100 to $150 range, there would be less talk of older CPUs.
