[Buy.com]Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge ($75 shipped) - Page 2

post #11 of 25
I found this Chinese review that has G620 tested

It is faster than Phenom II X2 555 in most cases. However, it is slightly slower than Athlon II X3 in multi-threaded apps.

Also, the IGP performance is comparable to Phenom II X2 555 with 890GX (HD4290)

As expected. Again, Intel's two newest architectures don't scale well under four threads. What you're looking at here is performance that's only around 5% faster than Core 2 Duo.

Yeah this is a tough sell for me with no HT and Turbo your max overclock would be 105*26= 2.73ghz. You can find fast AM3 X2/X3 for $75 or less. If I was going to get into a cheap SB setup I would go with Microcenter's i3-2100 for $100.

Sandy Bridge speed and efficiency is nice, but limiting the chip to the same instruction sets as pentium e5000 series is a big turn off.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I believe that with the right board and onboard video you could have an idle of below 13w.

So if you care about that, which you should, intels solution seems pretty great for computers that are on a great deal of the time.

Sure. Like I said, this would be great for an HTPC (or perhaps a low power server or office machine). If you want it for performance, don't get it. It's about the same clock for clock as Core 2 Duo which means the Athlon II X3 will come out ahead in multi-threaded apps.

Actually clock for clock, it is faster than Core 2 Duo

Check the review that I posted in my earlier post. G620 2.6GHz performed slightly better overall than E8400 (3GHz) and PII X2 555 (3.2GHz). It is slower than Athlon II X3 450 (3.2GHz) in multi-threaded applications, but faster in single/dual threaded apps.

Tempted to buy one of these as I'm thinking of upgrading my HTPC to Sandy Bridge. It currently has a Pentium E6300 (2.8Ghz/ 1066/ 2M)... would the G620 be much of an improvement?

The alternative would be to re-cycle my old i7-920 from my desktop, but that seems overkill for a HTPC and would be quite noisy/ power hungry.

Yeah, but just barely. There were some tests where it barely edged Core 2 Duo, and some where it was a bit faster. Nothing remarkable, really. Again, this is mostly Core 2 performance and you can't over-clock. An Athlon II X3 with a slight over-clock will probably be within spitting distance in single-threaded apps and it'll leave it in the dust in multi-threaded ones. Intel's newest architectures are meant for four or more threads.

It'll be some 10% faster. Not worth the money, really. Stick with your E6300.
