Intel has announced plans to rebrand its current generation Pentium processors, and future generations, to 'Pentium Gold' chips. The rebranding reflects Intel’s intention to position the latest Pentium CPUs above the previous generation parts. Starting from November 2nd, Intel’s boxed Pentium G4560, G4600, and G4620 processors will carry the Pentium Gold brand. These parts were launched in Q1 2017, and are dual-core CPUs with Hyper-Threading technology and an improved integrated GPU.
