Pentium G630 Vs G860

The Pentium G630 and G860 are low cost processors belonging to the Intel’s Sandy Bridge series. They have the same architecture as the second generation core i3-something processors, but do not have hyperthreading support. This makes is 10% slower for clock to clock.

The Pentium G860 is clocked 300 MHz higher ( 3.0 GHz Vs 2.70 GHz) making it theoretically 10 % or so faster. Both the processors come with the same HD Graphics 2000 as integrated graphics.

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 G860

G860 is fastest pentium branded Sandy Bridge desktop processor. It is also possibly the last in the Pentium Brand series in the Sandy Bridge before Ivy Bridge launches. The Pentium G860 does not support Hyperthreading and also does not support Quick Sync – two important differences with the Core i3 Sandy Bridge processors. At 3.00 GHz, this dual core processor is still fast enough for most of your tasks. Pentium G860 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.
