Review: Intel Pentium G4560 Boxed [BX80677G4560]

Intel Pentium G4560 tray [BX80677G4560] with Hyper-Threading support may be interesting not only for installation in office and work PCs, but also for creating decent budget gaming and multimedia systems.

The dual-core four-threaded processor has a fairly high clock speed of 3,500 MHz, L3 cache — 3 MB, support up to 64 GB of RAM in dual channel mode, support ECC memory and frequencies up to 2400 MHz. In fact, it is slightly trimmed versions of Core i3, with slightly lower frequencies and a cache, lack of AVX instructions (that help to solve multimedia tasks). The main argument in favor of buying it is a much lower price than Core i3.

Power of Intel Pentium G4560 will be enough to run the games of 2016-2017 at the minimum and medium settings in 30 FPS: Mafia III (medium), Dishonored 2 (medium settings), Battlefield 4 (ultra, except for scaling the resolution), CS: GO (ultra), DotA 2 (ultra), World of Tanks (ultra), Fallout 4 (ultra), GTA 5 (high), Evolve (ultra), Mortal Kombat X (ultra), DOOM (ultra) and so on.

The processor is not suitable for use with video cards of the top segment (such as 1080 Ti), but it will perfectly reveal the potential of low price cards (1050 Ti, RX 580).

One of the main advantages of the “stone” is its energy efficiency – this “low-power” CPU consumes almost nothing and has a low heat dissipation of 54 W. With a good cooler, the processor will work with a temperature of 40-50 degrees, even working under load.

If we talk about everyday multimedia tasks, the Intel HD Graphics 610 GPU will be enough, right up to run 4K / 60 HZ video from YouTube.

For whom?

The processor will be an excellent option for assembling a family PC or children’s leisure / study. But in no case should it be considered as the “heart” of a computer intended for creating media content. Video editing and 3D modeling programs will be very slow.

Where to buy?
