It is not!
G4400 is unlocked as well.
The g3258 is the only unlocked dual core from Intel. Meaning it can get up to speeds of 4.7ghz or even higher for some. That's why it is recommended so much.
so, recommending the g3258 because of its single core performance, when the g4400 outperforms it in every category including that. nice job.
