Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 447

post #4461 of 4577
I just ordered one Pentium G3258 and one MSI H81M-P33 to replace the core i3 530 in my signature. Core i3 530 plays most of my games adequately but lately, it's struggling (less than 20fps) in some mmo's such as Neverwinter. Neverwinter changed in the past year from small groups (dungeons) to large groups (heroic encounters and killing dragons) which causes my core i3 to severely bottleneck.

Yesterday, I disabled hyperthreading and played neverwinter and was surprised to see my fps was almost the same. cpu usage usually at 70-90% on both cores and rarely more than 90%. It seems a G3258 will be an excellent cpu for my mmo needs and for playing older single player games. Honestly, I rarely play new games. Latetly, been replaying Fallout 3 and then maybe will try fallout 4. I'm excited to try Fallout 3 on a Pentium G3258 ,especially since I play that in 3D Vision and need high frame rate.

Will re-use all the parts in my signature including the 4GB DDR3 ram which runs pretty much every game I want to play. I was able to play Warhammer: Vermintide on 4GB ram even though minimum requirements state 6GB ram. Will be re-installing windows 7 since I use an old 3D driver which might not install/run on newer windows OS.

I also considered a Skylake Pentium + Z170 board, but I would have to buy DD4 ram and total cost is much higher than G3258 + H81M board and re-use old DDR3 ram.

I should have ordered a G3258 back in 2014/2015, but I was worried when people said intel may disable overclocking on non-Z boards, so I waited. After waiting more than one year, I will finally retire my old beloved core i3 530.

Long term, I am considering buying AMD zen cpu/motherboard and DD4 ram after it is released, however, that appears to be a one year wait, and I expect launch price to be high. Realistically, planning to use the G3258 for the next 2 years (until zen prices decline). By chance, if zen underperforms compared to Haswell/Skylake, then I might continue using G3258 for additional years. I would like a large multi-core cpu for gaming, but can't afford Intel prices, and not willing to sacrifice single thread performance if future AMD cpu's are weak in single threads.

G3258 and MSI H81M-P33 will be delivered on Wednesday. Let me know if you think I should change/cancel the order.

It all comes down to what kind of games you'll play, and how demanding a gamer you are. It doesn't work so well in certain games but I'm satisfied with it's performance in most games I've played so far, excluding Assassin's Creed: Syndicate.

FWIW.. With my G3258 @ 4.5GHZ and EVGA GTX 560 TI DS, I have had zero issues playing FIFA 16 at the highest setting locked to 60 fps or Assassin Creed: Black Flag at high settings with Vsync turned off. Look just as good as XOne or PS4.

Hi, I have a G3258 cpu as well, unfortunately mine doesn't like higher speeds, so I got it to 4.2ghz at 1.35v VCORE, using 1.95v VCCIN,, is this safe for daily use? My temps are: 30c idle, 50 under normal load, in the 60's c for heavy loads and up to 72c when stress testing with prime95.

One thing I highly suggest is getting more RAM to give your system a bit of extra oomph. I have several sticks of 4GB DDR3-1333 we could discuss a deal on, if you're so inclined, but the market is such that you could get RAM quite cheaply now at Newegg for new-in-box prices.

I just downloaded the Dying Light demo on steam.
On my core i3 530 @4GHz, with hyperthreading disabled, soon after leaving the starting room, the game quickly becomes a slide show, followed by long freezes.
all graphics settings to off or lowest.

After restarting PC with hyperthreading enabled, Dying Light is 100% playable. no slide show. no freeze at all.

Searched youtube. found many Dying Light gameplay videos made on G3258 which means it should be playable on a strong dual-core.
Still, it's shocking how weak a core i3 530 is without hyperthreading.

That is going to change once you get 64 bit game exectuables. Speaking from my experience, upgrading to 8GB from 4GB reduced stuttering and sluggishness in Assassin's Creed: Syndicate but not freezing fits.

My brother has an i3 530 but he doesn't game, so I don't know how well it'll be in latest games, but having a latest processor is definitely better.

I personally went for massive overkill with 32 GB of RAM, partly as I wanted to be able to have a RAMdisk and still have lots of room for applicatons etc. smile.gif It's some nice G.Skill DDR3-2133, as well.

So, today I said goodbye to my g3258. Bought a i5 4690k. Still doing some tests, but the temps on this i5 are... "cool".
Max temp on the cores was 44ºc after doing 3dmark (huge jump on the scores, on the cpu side ofc).
Will try some oc, but probably not today, will be finaly enjoying some witcher 3 without any stuttering whatsoever.
My g3258 was a bad ocer, 4.2ghz unstable with 1.35v. Will use it for a mediacenter/server whenever I get a new mobo (current one, z97m anniversary, is a budget mobo and will be looking fora better one for my i5).
I have a pic of the info on the die of the pentium, if it's of any use. If it's any worth for someone I will post it.
