Average Bench: 58.4% (197th of 981)

Based on 13,715 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000906E9, , 0F8BFBFF000906E9 Models: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G4560 @ 3.50GHz, Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G4560T @ 2.90GHz

The Intel G4560 is one of the first Pentium processors to feature Hyper-threading. This means that although the G4560 only has two physical processing cores, it is able to process four threads in parallel by sharing resources between the physical cores. This typically results in a 50% performance improvement over two physical cores alone. Comparing performance between the lowest spec Kaby Lake i3 7100 and the Pentium G4560 shows that in terms of both performance and specs, very little separates them (even virtualization technology VT-d is present on the Pentium). The Pentium does lack AVX 2.0 (Advanced Vector Instructions) and it trails the i3 7100 by 400 MHz (10%) but there is no longer a clear divide between Pentiums and Core i3s. Intel have achieved an almost continuous distribution of performance levels for each price point from the cheapest Pentium to the top end i7-7700K[Jan '17 CPUPro]

Knocked off a star because of price increases, performs almost equivalent to an i3, but a fraction of the cost. I bought mine for $50 on sale, which was a tremendous deal and I recommend this to any entry level budget builder.
