AMD A4-3300 (HX) vs Intel Pentium G620

Mini Review

AMD A4-3300 (HX) advantages



AMD A4-3300 (HX)
  • The processor has 52% better performance in graphics tasks.
  • The CPU features 3DNow! technology. The 3DNow! instruction set helps the microprocessor to perform certain floating-point operations faster, and thus enhance performance in games, that support the instructions. This technology is obsolete now, and only some old games and software used them.

Intel Pentium G620 advantages



Intel Pentium G620
  • In single-threaded tasks, the Intel G620 CPU is about 44% faster.
  • Multi-threaded performance of the Pentium G620 is higher.
  • In memory-intensive programs, the processor has 20% better performance.
  • The G620 incorporates SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.

Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a partial set of AMD A4-3300 (HX) and Intel Pentium G620 benchmarks from our CPU benchmark database. The former processor was tested on ASUS F1A75-V Pro motherboard with 4GB dual-channel Crucial BallistixPC3-14900 (DDR3-1866) memory, and Integrated on-chip ATI Radeon 6000-series graphics. The latter processor was tested on ASUS P8H61-M motherboard, that had 2 GB dual-channel Corsair CM3X1024-1333C9 DDR3 memory, and Integrated on-chip Intel Sandy Bridge graphics. For different system configurations please see tests of A4-3300 (HX) and Intel Pentium G620 CPUs in our benchmark database.

All tests were performed at default frequency and voltage, using manufacturer's stock fan/heatsink. None of the components were overclocked. Motherboard BIOS options were left at default settings.

The results of all benchmarks are broken into four categories: multi-threaded, single-threaded, memory intensive and graphics / gaming.


A4-3300 (HX) vs Intel Pentium G620 single-threaded benchmarks

Single-threaded benchmarks run on a single CPU core, and do not depend on such features as the number of cores, or Hyper-Threading technology. Additionally, they do not utilize on-chip caches, dedicated to other cores.

A4-3300 (HX) vs Intel Pentium G620 graphics benchmarks

Graphics benchmarks depend on the type of integrated or discrete graphics adapter, and to less extent on the processor performance. Because these benchmarks are synthetic, they may not truly represent gaming performance. However, they still can be used to estimate whether one processor will perform faster or slower than another CPU in games and other 3D tasks.
