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]

The AMD Phenom II X4 955 is a quad-core processor based on the K10 micro-architecture. When it launched in Q2 of 2009, it was AMD’s fastest CPU. Given its base clock of 3.2 GHz, with appropriate cooling, this unlocked Black Edition chip can be overclocked to speeds in excess of 4 GHz. The 955’s effective speed of 63 isn’t impressive by today’s standards, but when coupled with a decent graphics card, it won't cause major bottlenecks for most games. The 955 was pitched against the high-end of Intel’s Core 2 quads, and now costs a fraction of its original list price as one would expect, however there are better alternatives on the market now. [Dec '14 CPUPro]
