available
  • The AMD 225 comes with higher operating frequency than the Intel G630 microprocessor.
  • 3DNow! instructions are supported by this processor. Even though the 3DNow! instructions may improve performance of certain old games, they are now obsolete, and they are not utilized by modern applications.

Intel Pentium G630 advantages



Intel Pentium G630
  • The CPU includes SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The Pentium G630 processor has on-chip HD (Sandy Bridge) GPU. This graphics is not a replacement for high-end graphics cards, but it can be used for 3D apps and casual gaming.

225 vs G630 specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important characteristics of the G630 and 225 CPUs. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
