Pentium G020 vs Phenom II 965 in Dual Core games

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm changing to Intel platform, but due to the tight budget, I have thought about taking a Pentium G2020. I've seen benchmarks in single core and dual core, and by far beats the Phenom II ... is due to the IPC, I guess. Also, do not eat anything, very little is heated, is a processor / current socket 2013, etc ... You would do the change? I play most games that support two cores, not four.

Greetings.

I'd probably go with a G2020 since it's newer tech, consumes less power, faster in single and dual core benchmarks, and due to the fact that the games you will be playing won't use more than 2 cores.

Anyone know the VID of the processor? What voltage processor speed using the stock? 2.9ghz

Every CPU normally has a different VID. There is a VID range normally.

If it were me, I would save up, and go for the i3 at least.

the i3 is not a true quad, is HT. For games I play, the IPC is the same, or very similar, not worth it.

Furthermore, HT hardly used in games, are not optimized for this technology.

The i3 doesn't claim to be a quad core, nor did I say it was.

You however will see a fairly decent increase in performance because of the clock speed, and the HT does help for general performance in some applications.

Some applications, but virtually none games.

Increase in fps? I doubt it ... performance per core (IPC) is very similar, not worth paying € 50 more. If anything, the performance gained does not justify the 50 € more.
