Athlon X4 760k vs. Pentium G3528

As the title suggest, which one is better?

I haven't seen many benchmarks since the pentium is scheduled to release at June 20, 2014.

I'm also curious of this. Personally I think the Pentium will do better than the 760K in most games because still most games only use 2 cores. I'm more curious of how it will stack up to the 760K in bf4 and other games that use more than 2 cores. I guess this includes BF4, Watch Dogs, Crysis and what else?

I think if you get this thing to around 4.5-4.8, you will see very little in the way of a bottleneck using a GTX 780 or R9-290. (I may be wrong so don't quote me)

Don't forget about caches, the Athlon has 2x2MB L2 Cache while the Pentium has 1x3MB L3.

Games are actually starting to more frequently use more than 2 cores. But going the i3 route is still faster and cheaper. Also contrary to beleif, hyper-threading does impact fps performance slightly if optimized.

Overclocked pentium g3258 is a little slower/on par with an i3 but has more power consumption and costs a little more (Z series motherboard and heatsink for overclocking).

Edit: overclocked g3258/i3 is still faster than a athlon ii x4 760k.

What I'm thinking is that, now over clocking is possible on h series mobos, get the pentium now and you can upgrade it in the future. AMD socket is dead, and doesn't appear to outperform the pentium in any significant way

Its still a little gray. K series or pentium g3258 but nothing completely confirmed. Except the overclocking part (but to what extent?).

Kind of sort of comparison:

A locked Pentium vs 760 gaming.
