A good basic processor that hits the sweet spot of price-to-performance for most users' needs.

Unlike Intel's cheaper Celerons, it is dual core, and has more cache than the high end of the current Celeron lineup, which are only slightly cheaper.

Unlike the more powerful Intel i3 linup, this Pentium lacks HT, turbo-boost, the bigger cache, the faster bus and clock speeds, but it comes respectably close to its big brother's numbers for 1/3 to 1/2 the price.

The 32nm build process makes for a cooler-running (lower-powered) chip than previous generations. My Foxconn RM1-H2 mini computer with this CPU, 2 7200rpm drives, and 2GB RAM idles at less than 45W.

With 64-bit support, VT hooks, onboard graphics, this fit my basic server needs perfectly. On FreeBSD 8.3, it shows up as:
Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G630 @ 2.70GHz (2693.90-MHz K8-class CPU)

In a very simple (artificial) straight-line integer performance test called speedf that I use to compare integer performance between CPUs (single-core single-thread sequential crypt operations), this CPU clocked 306K per second vs 277K per second on an Intel Core2 Duo E8400 3GHZ.

(as an aside, it's always good to check Intel's "Ark" website to compare the specs on their prolific portfolio of processors)

With no HT, only 2 cores, no dual-socket capability, and modest performance, this isn't the optimal choice for high-end workstation or gaming needs, nor for a busy server workload, but for basic desktop usage or simple servers, it's inexpensive and works well. Recommended.

My wife wanted to play Guild Wars 2 (she never wants to play computer games). I bought this, along with the Biostar micro motherboard and a 7750 video card. The total was around $250 (4 GB of ram). The PC plays GW2 in medium settings at a good resolution and gets 45-55 FPS average. I'm running on my PC (i5 quad core @ 3.7 ghz and a GTX 570) on High settings and get 55-65 FPS average.

I was very pleasantly surprised with the performance of this with a $95 video card. I don't think the review below that says "Stop, don't buy this for gaming" is accurate. GW2 is a pretty intensive game on CPU and GPU, and it ran fine with quite a few bells and whistles turned on.

I can't really complain about anything with this CPU; no problems with installation, heat sink attaches just fine, and seems to work pretty fast considering it is only a dual core. I don't think you can beat the price, if you're looking for a simple computer with no demanding computing tasks (photoshop or video editing), then this is definitely the processor for you!

If you are wanting to play lots of games, edit video, compile programs, S T O P. This isn't for you. Odds are you already know this.

This is a great CPU at 2.7 GHz, Dual Core(No HT), and 3 MB of L3 Cache. Temps stay in a decent range. Mine tops out at about 38°C with the stock fan and 3 120mm fans but normally it is around 32°C.

I cant give an accurate review for each individual case because I only use this for a custom Debian NAS/Media Server.

In my server I have a Hardware RAID card with 4 x 2 TB Drives in RAID 5. This alone keeps CPU usage down. But since I use the on-board LAN the CPU plays a big part. Under normal operation I use about 15% of the CPU. But during transfers of back-ups or large files I have seen it reach 65%. And my wired LAN reaches about 100 MB/s which converts to about 845 Mb/s over gigabit LAN. Since my Raid controller is hardware the CPU is reserved mostly for the LAN which allows me to reach those speeds. My R/W on the array is ' 225 MB/s but Gigabit LAN cant touch that speed. But like I said this is a NAS/ Media Server.

I have had this running for 9 months 3 days 11 hours 31 min (based on the up time indicator on the server) running 24/7 and no issues so far. It wasn't as cheap when I bought it but it was just released.

Overall I give this CPU 5 stars because it is stable and reliable. It does its job and I don't need to think about it. And that is what should happen with your CPU. If you are looking for a cheap stable CPU for web, light games, server capabilities this is it. I wouldn't try COD or Skyrim on it.

This works great for a quiet HTPC in the bedroom, plays 1080p content fine. Quiet and much cooler than an old dual core 3GHZ I had laying around, that was about 5ish years old. This one handles everything much better.

I was shocked to find out how fast this cheap cpu could go. I'm upgrading from a Core2Quad Q6600. The G630 easily matches the performance and then some despite 2 fewer cores. Running encoding software goes noticeably faster and programs seem more responsive. Was going to use this as a cheap stepping stone to an i5 but might stick with this for awhile. Plenty fast.

This CPU may be a great low-price alternative to the Intel i3. It will cost about half as much and provide great performance.

Windows Experience Index: 6.6 (Amazing score)

As you can see from the WEI score, this CPU is more than capable of performing even demanding tasks. It will most likely not be the bottleneck in your system.

Note: The fastest RAM speed this CPU will support is 1066MHz which is a bit of a letdown because most new RAMs run at 1333MHz and up. Despite this minor issue, I was able to get a WEI score of 7.4 for my 8GB (2x4GB) 1333MHz RAM installed in my system. The 1066MHz limit shouldn't be a reason not to get this CPU since you can see from my results the RAM was more than capable even with the limitation.
