The G3220 is a 2013 Haswell based CPU and is part of Intel's value range of Pentium processors which were launched in 2011. The Pentium-G range have very strong single and dual core performance but lag far behind the group leaders in terms of multi-core processing (MCP). MCP is important for tasks such as audio/video encoding, or software development. For regular PC use such as surfing the web, listening to music, watching movies and playing the vast majority of games, MCP is not required. The G3220 currently retails for one sixth of the price of a top of the range 4770K but has an effective speed of 75.3 which is just 12% lower than the average of the current group leaders. The vast majority of users will notice no difference even by paying five times more for one of the top end multi-core processors. [Mar '14 CPUPro]

The Core2 Quad Q6600 is over 7 years old which is a lot of processor lifetimes! This particular model has been included in the group test simply as a reference because of its exceptional popularity back when it was at the forefront of technological advance. The Q6600's four physical cores demonstrate exceptional overclocking capacity and often achieve in excess of 40% performance increases. Modern Quad core processors offer nearly three times more performance on both single and multi-core workloads. There have also been lots of non-processing related improvements in the platform over the last 7 years which include SATA 600 MB/s, USB 3.0 PCIe and more. [Mar '14 CPUPro]

Processor Rankings (Price vs Performance) June 2017 CPU Rankings.

Welcome to our desktop CPU comparison. We calculate effective speed which measures real world performance for typical consumers. Effective speed is adjusted by price to yield a value for money rating which is geared towards gamers. Calculated values don't always paint the whole picture so we check them against hundreds of individual user ratings. The customizable table below combines these factors and more to bring you the definitive list of top CPUs. [CPUPro]
