Pentium E5700 Vs Pentium G630

– The Pentium E5700 belongs to the the earlier Wolfdale Series, while the Pentium G630 belongs to the newer Sandy Bridge group of processors.
– Even though the E5700 is clocked higher than the Pentium G630, the latter has better performance, owing to the better Sandy Bridge architecture and Hyperthreading.
– The Pentium G630 also comes with Integrated graphics unit ( HD Graphics 2000). The Pentium E5700 does not come with any integrated GPU.
– The Pentium E5700 does not comes with memory controller. It does not connect to the memory directly. Instead, it communicates to the north bridge, which, in turn communicates with memory. Pentium G630 has integrated memory controller and it communicates with memory directly. This reduces memory latency and improves performance.

Some more details of Pentium E5700

Intel’s Pentium E5700 is a dual core desktop processor with moderate performance. Some of its architectural shortcomings leads to inferior performance as compared to the Core i3 processors. The newer Sandy Bridge Pentium and Celeron processors have better architecture, integrated memory controller and an integrated graphics at the same price point.

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.
