If you're not familiar with Pentium Kaby Lake, this is the first time it has hyper-threading feature (normally found in Core i3), with total up to 4 threads and imitates like a quad-core processor.

Limit 1 per customer. Cheers...

No. Looks like combo discounts start with i3 and above - the cheapest i3 that qualifies for the motherboard combo discount is the Intel Core i3-7100 Kaby Lake 3.9GHz @ $119.99, at least at my local MC.

i3 with 4 physical cores will be released soon and a Ryzen 3 with 4 physical cores is only $109 with $30 motherboard discount. Ryzen 3 is as fast as ai5 with 4 physical cores.

Didn't know this but makes sense, the whole product line is getting upgrades now and with coffee lake. Pentiums get hyperthreading, i3 gets 4 cores, i5 gets 6 cores, i7 6 hyperthreaded cores I think. Hope Ryzen can keep Intel honest.

i3/R3 will require a much more expensive motherboard also. In Ryzen case, a GPU as well.

Is this coupon legit for all stores? Last time I seen a Microcenter coupon go around it was only meant for two new grand opening stores but the whole internet got wind of it got out and was used it at all the stores and they got mad and all that crap.

Second cheapest at Newegg just sold-out at $62.37. I think the Pentium G4560 is going to be the craziest deal I've seen since the launch of 2008 AMD Phenom II X4 days.

Pentium G4560 is 98% identical to Core i3-4330, with identical clock speed and graphics. i3-4330 originally sold for $149.99 in 2013.

Wake me up when they add a tensor processing unit. GPU 10x faster than CPU and TPU 10x faster than GPU.
