Intel Kaby Lake Pentiums with Hyperthreading

Two cores and four threads

With the launch of Kaby Lake Intel has brought change to their Pentium lineup as well. These chips will now for the first time support Hyperthreading. This means there are now Pentium CPUs with two cores and four threads available for as little as 75 Euro.

Thanks to Hyperthreading, the performance level of the new Intel Pentium CPUs is much closer to Intel Core i3 chips. One of the main difference between these two CPU series is the lack of the AVX2 instruction on the Pentium chips, which helps significantly in the case of video editing and transcoding. Apart from that the Core i3 processors come with a more powerful iGPU and higher clock frequencies.
