Average Bench: 39.1% (431st of 980)

Based on 4,036 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000306C3, , 0FABFBFF000306C3, 2054454B434F5300 Model: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G3220 @ 3.00GHz

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]
