Intel to release unlocked Pentium processor

To be unlocked in the Intel world means that you must be a high-end processor, at least a Core i5 chip. Well, this will be no longer the case starting this summer.

US chip maker Intel plans to release an unlocked version of its Pentium processors to celebrate 21 years since the release of the first Pentium processor back in the distant year 1993. The chip will be based on the latest Haswell architecture and will work on all 8th series and 9th series Intel chipsets and motherboards sporting this hardware in particular.

Unfortunately there is no more information on this chip but it seems that budget-oriented overclockers will get a shiny new toy to play with.
