If we talk about junior processors, then they will have many advantages. First of all, new compact crystals without E-cores will be used for them. In addition, the price for processors with the Golden Cove microarchitecture is also pleasing. So, even starting with the younger i5, you can buy a processor without E-cores and use Windows 10 and older versions. Finally, Intel has left Pentium, although there will be only one model – Pentium Gold G7400 (its frequency will be 3.7 GHz, price – $ 123 equivalent).
Other good processors are i3-2300T (4 cores, frequency up to 4.2 GHz), Intel Celeron. The cost of the latter is $ 97 in equivalent.
