Average Bench: 57.3% (640th of 1452)

Based on 70,054 user benchmarks.  Device: BFEBFBFF000906E9 Model: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G4560 @ 3.50GHz

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]

I used this processor since 2016 and it still does the job well (not dies, every app works properly). Computing speeds are average and gaming performance for 2023 is quite poor, but for 30 pounds you can't expect a miracle!

Maybe its not a powerhouse,but 2 cores it has is really strong for its price.

Its an alright budget CPU but its a big bottleneck for gaming, id say its a good everyday use cpu for a family pc.

This G4560 is a better version of i3-6100. One of the best for it's price from intel


Poor

Why would you even consider a processor like this while used quad cores can go for the same...... If you have bought this and have used it for a year well its still worth your money but in 2018 its just not worth it anymore.

luckily i did not buy i3. for the price, i can spend the extra money to graphic card. i love my budget build (not so budget). lol

Budget Beast! Can't do better for under $100, the only issue that I have it's I can't find anything better for upgrading with my current H110M chipset at a similar price range, Ryzen 3 took too long and I had to build with Intel. But this CPU is pretty kickass, I really love it and highly recommend it, if you can find it for $60-70 it's a steal.
