Dual Core unlocked and overclocked from 2010 versus Dual Core overclocked from 2014 <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br>
Can you tell the CPU/NB overclocked? If there is any, if there isn't you should overclock it because Phenom II beneffits from it and keep HT at stock.<br><br>
Hope to see more results, intrigued by this.. but according to benchmarks an overclocked Pentium is on par with a stock i3 which outperforms overclocked Phenom II X4's.

I had my NB at 2800mhz I believe, I pretty much pushed that chip to it's limits the best I could with thermal constraints, I got better and better at overclocking it and worked my way up from stock voltage, I could do 4GHz but that would be too much for the cooler now, especially with Summer approaching.<br>
Also, what benchmarks and by how much? in my first Performance Test Screen the 955 is allegedly 15.6% slower with a score of 3976, versus the Pentium's 4713.

Zone of the Enders footage is up!<br>
I think with a bit of tweaking it could be possible to get it to run smoother, this is one of the most demanding PS2 Games to emulate.<br>
When up-close in a battle it slows down a bit, that's really only the main performance drop.

Shadow of the Colossus footage is up!<br>
I show the speedhacks used in the video, EE cycle rate is running at it's lowest, VU cycle stealing is one 1.<br>
For my Phenom II to even come close to this the EE cylce rate had to be set to 2, and the VU stealing at one, and it wasn't as fast, I'll try and get that video up after I'm done with Battlefield 3 MP.

People would love a tl;dr bar graph of the results for the two cpus at the top. Like in common review sites. But it's not a problem as it is.

I've had my G3258 for a few days, stupid motherboard UEFI locks the vcore to 1.3v so I'm stuck at 4.4GHz until a better one arrives (two days from now). I loaded up Planetside 2 for laughs, expecting to see a slideshow, but amazingly it stayed above 30fps in a medium-sized battle. Almost all settings maxed out.<br><br>
Clock-for-clock this dual core can match or beat my FX-8350 in PS2.

Man, it kicked the crap out of my Phenom II.<br>
All this CPU has done is impress me in basically every game I've tried, the "synthetic" benches do it no justice.

I have one for Battlefield 3 but not FFXIV ARR if that's what you mean, I can do one for FFXIV on the Pentium but the Phenom build has been disassembled.<br>
Everything else got one but that game since it stops and starts during the benching and it would be awkward to split up into segments but that probably would of been best.<br><br>
I had plans to record all of the Phenom II benches but Shadowplay decided it was a great idea to spew errors on the days I'm doing the benchmarks and refuse to record.<br><br>
Some did record though, I have some Phenom II gameplay of Star Citizen, Planet Side 2 and a few others thankfully.

Just got mine up and running. If you look at my sig rig (The devils own) it's all the same but the motherboard and CPU. Should be fun seeing what this can do under water.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2088549/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2088549" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2088549/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 385px"></a><br><br>
As soon as I figure out how to overclock Intel on an Asrock board I will be benching the heck out of this chip. <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

SOTC Phenom II 3.9GHz getting uploaded, will take awhile to upload thanks to my poor upload speed, and ACIV: Black Flag Pentium 4.4GHz footage getting uploaded.<br><br>
I'm going to upload a couple of videos overnight including a few Phenom II X4 B55 @3.9GHz benches, so I can focus solely on the Pentium G3258 @4.4GHz tomorrow, it's going to take awhile to upload so I wouldn't hold my breath for anything within the next hour or so. <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif"><br><br><div class="quote-container" data-huddler-embed="/t/1500524/pentium-g3258-performance-thread/10#post_22532442" data-huddler-embed-placeholder="false"><span>Quote:</span>

How would this work for a streaming pc with a live gamer hd doing the encoding?</div>

Hmm I'm not sure, it might be too much stress for it, I would give it a shot but my upload speed is pretty bad for something like that.<br><div class="quote-container" data-huddler-embed="/t/1500524/pentium-g3258-performance-thread/10#post_22532446" data-huddler-embed-placeholder="false"><span>Quote:</span>

Nice one, good luck! <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br>
It's quite some fun.

Ahh, it's nice to see FX8 core owners and Phenom owners are taking this chip seriously <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><br>
I believe intel created a slight diversion with this unlocked dual core <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I wonder if they will face any anti-competitive law suits if they unlock their i3.

Kids of 2024 be like "You mean to tell me, there was a company called AMD that made CPUs too?"<br>
I'm kidding, AMD need to step up their IPC big time, I don't want to be telling stories like that, I hope they have an impressive comeback in their next lineup of desktop chips.<br><br>
But damn an unlocked i3, even a Tri-Core K Chip nobody's ever heard of would likely be a beast if they price it right.

I seriously thought about getting a 4690k to review this board but I saw what fun folks were having with this chip I just had too. I may push it until it fries in the end and get the 4690k anyways. This bios is like Greek to me. Must do more research. <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif">

Fvk Intel man... This chip cements their nature as greedy controlling beasts (locking cpus)... It's quite clear at this point what they've forced onto us... Don't get me wrong, i own and love the chip, but... sigh.<br><br><br>
I go to church every sunday and pray AMD will make a comeback and beat some sense into those Greedy Intel bastards....<img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><br>
Why am I so mad?? because they created an artificial differentiation of products by leveraging their monopoly on IPC performance.<br><br>
They dictate how we get to use the product we pay for... THAT is tyranny....<img alt="mad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/mad.gif">
