Intel killing the Pentium G4560 because it cannibalized Core i3 sales

TechPowerUp reports Intel is significantly scaling down the production of its Pentium G4560 processor to force consumers to buy the more expensive Core i3 series. Originally launched for $64, the Pentium G4560 is a dual-core, quad-threaded LGA1151 processor with a base frequency of 3.5GHz and 3MB L3 cache.

It's a decent budget chip but the problem for Intel is that it's simply too good versus the low-end Core i3 line, which starts at around $117 for the Core i3-7100.

The Core i3-7100 has very similar specifications as the Pentium G4560, the main difference is that it's clocked at 3.9GHz and has faster integrated graphics. So to end the cannibalization, Intel reduced supply of the G4560.
