[Results] Intel Celeron G1820 vs Core i5 4460

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, guys!

After 4 months of using this cool little Haswell Celeron as a placeholder, I upgraded to a Core i5 4460.
So I had the chance to test the two CPUs in several different games and other tests. Often I see questions like "how much will I benefit from upgrading to ...", hopefully these bench results can shed some light on the matter for other people.
Code:
Mobo: AsRock H81M-DG4 (BIOS v1.10, latest)
RAM: 2x8Gb KVR 1333 Mhz @1.3v
GPU: Sapphire R9 280X DualX OC (1280x1024)
Case: Thermaltake Versa H25
Cooler: Scythe Ninja 3
Fans: 2 front intake, 1 CPU, 1 rear exhaust, top grill shut
Room temp: 20C

CPUs:
Intel Celeron G1820, 2.7Ghz, running @ 0.808 VID
Intel Core i5 4460, 3.2-3.3Ghz, stock voltage

Benchmarks: 
Intel Burn Test (Very High, 5 runs)
3DMark FireStrike
Metro 2033 (4x MSAA, 4x AF, Advanced physics, Advanced DoF, Very High preset, Frontline)
Thief (Direct X, Very High preset)
GRID Autosport (4x MSAA, Ultra preset)
CS:GO (all max, 4x MSAA, 4x AF, FXAA OFF, VSync OFF, Motion blur OFF)

Nicely done.

I find it amusing that your graphics score in 3dmark got worse... Graphics: 14105 / 14075

I guess more overhead? Or I guess it's within the margin of error and there was effectively no difference.

Even with an g3258 oced the 280x would be limited,but an i5 would be the best choice for games that prefer 4c
