Pentium (R) - is it affected by Spectre or Meltdown?

Chip is Intel (R) Pentium (R) CPU G3220 @ 3.0 GHz in Dell Inspiron, running Windows 10. Pentium (R) is not in Intel's list of affected chips for either Spectre or Meltdown, unless I've missed something. Does this mean I'm safe from both please?

All we can say is that, right or wrong, the current list of affected processor families (see here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/facts-about-side-channel-analysi... Facts about The New Security Research Findings and Intel Products) does not include the Pentium G processor family. Intel does reserve the right to change this list at any time, so, time will tell (pun intended).
