Intel Pentium G3258 Price in India
Intel Pentium G3258 Rating 71100
Stock performance of this processor is similar to the Intel Pentium G3420 which was released about nine months ago. As for AMD processors, it should lie somewhere between the A8-7600 and the A8-5500. The Intel Pentium G3258 is definitely worth the money but overclocking isn't for everyone and this one proves its worth only at stratospheric levels.
- Great for overclocking
- Only two cores
Intel Pentium G3258: Detailed Review
Devil's Canyon got all the publicity while the Intel G3258 processor tried to get by in the shadows, that is until the word 'overclock' got thrown in the mix. The G3258's specifications don't look impressive at all on paper- 2 cores with a thread on each. Moreover, it resides under the Pentium series, which almost everyone ignores in lieu of the Core i series.
However, Intel did mention that the processor has potential and it has proven itself so. We read about multiple individuals easily overclocking the G3258 to impressive speeds with minimal effort, with one being overclocked to 4.8 GHz on air. That's a difference of 1.6GHz and all of this is happening on a Pentium processor. Compare this to the K series processors which hit 4.5-4.7 GHz on air coolers and require LN2 to go any further. And those processors cost about five times as this one.
Stock performance of this processor is similar to the Intel Pentium G3420 which was released about nine months ago. As for AMD processors, it should lie somewhere between the A8-7600 and the A8-5500. But each processor when overclocked willresult in a different frequency due to binning and if you are lucky you might get a G3258 that performs as well as a Core i5. The current world overclocking record for this processor stands at 6230 MHz. The Intel Pentium G3258 is definitely worth the money but overclocking isn't for everyone and this one proves its worth only at stratospheric levels.
