Intel Pentium G630 Vs G850

The Pentium G630 and G850 belong to the Intel’s Sandy Bridge series. It shares the same architecture as the Core i3-something processors, few few featurs disabled. The most important of these features is the Hyperthreading. For a given clock this makes a difference of the order of 10%.

The Pentium G850 is clocked 200 MHz higher ( 2.90 GHz Vs 2.70 GHz), making it theoretically 7.4% faster. Both the processors come with the same HD Graphics 2000 as the integrated graphics.

The Pentium G630 and G850 are low cost processor and are still more than enough for most tasks you throw at it.

Some more details of Pentium G630

The Pentium G630 adds 100 MHz to the clock frequency of G620, marginally improving its performance. The G630 is a stripped down Sandy Bridge core i3 processor, that does not support Hyperthreading. It retains the HD graphics reducing the cost of an external graphics card.

Some more details of Pentium G850

G850 is another Sandy Bridge desktop processor that does not support Hyperthreading. At 2.90 GHz, this dual core processor will still be faster than most of the Sandy Bridge notebook processors around. Its low cost makes it attractive. The lack of some of the features, most importantly, the quick sync for video encoding may not make is great, especially if you use it, but other wise it is a great processor for general use. It can also be used for low cost gaming when paired with an external graphics card. The integrated graphics ( HD Graphics 2000 ) is good for displays – but not great for gaming.
