Sandy Bridge Pentiums?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What is this? Socket 1155, not I3, I5 or I7 but Pentium? How do these stack up?

It's just the low end/budget 1155 CPUs for desktops.

Here's what your looking at performance wise: http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentiu...um%20G620.html [click on benchmarks]

It's about equal too a phenom 9550 quad or a IIx3 440.Also about equal too an e8600.For that price it is a hard cpu too beat.Looks like a heck of a budget gaming rig cpu.

Hmm, I dunno. So far, most of the benchmarks show it's consistently behind the Pentium E6800 3.33 GHz 2MB L2 1066 FSB and while the clock rate of the E6800 is the same as the Core 2 Duo E8600, the extra 4MB L2 cache on the E8600 still makes a difference. Given the 2.6 GHz clock on the G620, though, it goes to show how much IPC has improved. Unfortunately, Sandy Bridge Pentiums are not overclockable. Wolfdale Pentiums, on the other hand, are pretty easy to get to 4GHz due to their high multipliers.

Then again, price-wise, the Pentium G620 ($64 1Ku) should just be replacing the Pentium E5x00 2MB L2 800 FSB. The Pentium G8x0 is the replacement to the Pentium E6x00.
