Intel Pentium G2020 single-threaded performance

Intel Pentium G2020

Below is a comparison of Intel Pentium G2020 single-threaded performance with performance of other x86 processors. The difference in performance between Pentium G2020 and each of the listed CPUs is calculated as an average of differences in 6 single-threaded benchmarks from our benchmark database. The list of test applications and programs includes CINEBENCH R10 CPU score for single core, FLAC encoding (1 process), H.264 video encoding (single process), LAME MP3 encoding (single process), Super PI, and XVid video encoding (single process). Be aware that these tests use only one core, hence they are not dependent on such microprocessor features as the number of cores and Hyper-Threading.


Single core performance of Intel Pentium CPUs for Socket 1155

This chart shows how well the Intel Pentium G2020 performs in comparison with other processors from Pentium family. The "Specs" column in the chart highlights differences between major characteristics for all microprocessors. Since the tests run on a single core, the "Specs" column does not show the number of cores, or Hyper-Threading support. All Pentium processors in the graph below have 3MB L3 cache.
