The New King of Budget CPUs under $100 US, Intel Pentium G4560
Part of Kaby Lake family processor, the Intel Pentium G4560 which were to launch at CES 2017. The list contains lots of core series processors and Pentium. US processor, Pentium G4560 is a $64 in price which is placed in the list and may not look like much of an interest until we get into the specification of this part.
Processor Specification for Intel Pentium G4560
The device comes up with a Hyper-Threading Technology and is a dual core processor. This is the first time Intel has the technology on the Pentium series processors with a four threads. The CPU has no boost clocks with a clock speed of 3.50 GHz base frequency. The chip saves a 3MB L3 cache and has a 54W TDP. The processor also combines up with the latest HD Graphics 610 clokced at 1150MHz. as the chip has a price of 64 USD which is impressive.
There are likewise the Pentium G4600 and G4620 which dispatch with somewhat higher clock speeds and HD Graphics 630 chips. These processors retail at a higher cost of $75 US (G4600) and $86 (G4620). Execution insightful, every one of the 3 processors ought to be quite near each other however the G4560 execution is truly something to find in the tests beneath.
Kaby Lake Desktop Lineup of Intel 7th Generation
The full execution audit of the Pentium G4560 is distributed by ComputerBase. Their execution tests are astounding as the $64 US chip can not just outflank a 6 center AMD FX-6300 processor additionally figures out how to be keeping pace with the higher valued Core i3-6100 Skylake ($117 US) and the once gaming champ, the Core i5-2500K which sold for around $230 US.
Gaming Performance (1080p):
- 16% faster than $89 FX-6300
- 26% faster than $60 Pentium G4400
- 26% faster than $149 A10-7890K
Applications Performance (Windows):
- 15% faster than $90 FX-6300
- 21% faster than $60 Pentium G4400
- 23% faster than $149 A10-7890K
In gaming benchmarks on 1080p and 720p, the Pentium G4560 without any help demolishes the Pentium G4400, FX-6300 and A10-7890K while being under 5% slower than the more costly Core i3-6100 and Core i5-2500K. As a rule Windows applications and engineered benchmarks, the distinction between the Pentium G4560 and Core i3-6100 is only 3% while the i5-2500K is only 1% quicker when normal execution is ascertained. In the Cinebench R15 benchmark, the Pentium G4560 is quicker in multi-strung execution while the Core i3-6100 winds up somewhat speedier amid single-strung assessment.
Multi Tasking and Multi GPU performance, Intel Pentium G4560
The execution tests uncover that the Pentium G4560 is particularly equipped for taking care of design cards from both standard and aficionado levels, for example, the Fury X and GTX 980 Ti. The chip can likewise handle different GPUs well with GTX 980 Ti SLI execution in Witcher 3 coordinating the Core i5-7600K.
During multi-tasking, the performance will be slightly hindered on the Pentium series due to the lower number of cores and the threads being fully utilized by the running applications. In an example, a multi-tasking scenario between Witcher 3 and WinRAR was created where the chip delivered a fine rate of FPS in the game but didn’t quite have ideal performance in the Windows application.
Power consumption and Temperature of Intel Pentium G4560
In regards to power and temperature, the chip features interesting numbers. At idle, the chip consumes a 34W and a slight load on the single core that leads to 46W which is lower than the last generation CPU of Celeron. The chip consumes 57W in a multi core load test, which is lower than G4400(59W) and on par with the celeron G1840.
Finally, we have the temperature tests which show that the G4560 reaches 48C at load which is slightly higher than the several Celeron chips operating at 41-42C. These are really impressive numbers for a budget tier chip.
