Intel’s Pentium G630 is a dual core desktop processor clocked at 2.7 GHz and is intended for the desktop segment.
Pentium G630 belongs to the latest Sandy Bridge series, so you will get all the benefits of this architecture including a much improved integrated graphics performance.
The Pentium Brand is a stripped down version of the mainstream Sandy Bridge processors. It will not have the Turbo boost 2.0 feature as in the second generation core i5 sandy bridge processors. It will also not support Hyperthreading. However, Intel plans to keep the cost down ( $75 at the time of writing) to compete with the entry level low cost AMD processors.
Even though the Turbo feature is disabled in the main processor, the Integrated graphics still offers the turbo. The graphics has a base frequency of 850 Mhz that can ramp to 1100 MHz in turbo mode.

The integrated memory controller provides fast processor to memory communication – The speed grade supported is DDR3-1066.
Pentium G630 has 3 MB of L3 Cache – moderately good for the caching needs. The L3 Cache is shared by the two processor cores as well as the integrated graphics. While this increases the complexity it improves the performance where a single process requires a large amount of cache memory.
The L1 cache consist of 32 KB of Data and 32 KB of instruction cache for each of the two cores. The L2 cache is 256 KB for each of the two cores.
If you are looking for building a low cost system based upon the Socket 1155, Pentium G655 could be one of your choices. But if you can spend $25 extra, you may be able to get some significantly faster processor.
