By Dougie Fresh VINE VOICE on September 21, 2011
I bought this CPU to make a low-power, inexpensive media PC for my bedroom to replace the Comcast DVRs I returned. I am not at all disappointed.

So far, I cannot tell the difference in picture quality or performance against the more expensive i3-2100 CPU that's in my main living room HTPC. It's definitely better than the AMD Phenom II x3 705e / HD5670 HTPC system I used to have. Like it's i3-2100 cousin, there is far less color banding, panning is better and the picture is overall just better. That AMD CPU and graphics card were over $200 at the beginning of 2010!

With this CPU, I am able to watch HD video, HD TV and everything else I need to do with my media PC without issue. It runs super-cool and the included fan and heatsink are not audible from across the bedroom. While watching HD video and TV it uses between 40W-50W. It idles under 30W. My old HTPC used 180W-200W and idled around 95W.

I continue to be amazed by the performance, power usage and features you get and this price point for an Intel CPU.

The build:
Intel Pentium G620 CPU
ASUS P8H61-I mini-itx motherboard
Rosewill RS-MI-01 BK mini-ITX case with 120W picoPSU replacing the stock PSU
Kingston V100 64GB SSD
Western Digital 320GB Caviar Blue HDD
Happauge WinTV 1250 tuner card
Rosewill USB wireless-N
Logitech K400 wireless keyboard
120mm Antec Tri-Cool case fan
Custom PSU backplate cover with mount for picoPSU jack

BTW: the title of this product page is incorrect. This is an LGA 1155 CPU, not LGA 1156.

Very impressive performance for such a bargain CPU. I paired it with a Geforce GTX 260 I had out of an older rig and it makes for a fantastic HTPC. I can even play Half Life 2 and World of Warcraft at high settings on my 55" Sony at 1080p, now that was an unexpected bonus.

For real world applications this will handle anything in a productivity suite. With 4gb ram I have been able to have around 6 browser tabs open, Itunes and anything from MS Office 2010 going at the same time with no halts. Adobe CS5 also runs great too.

The only con I can think of is that it doesn't have hyper threading and has a locked multiplier, but this isn't a performance/gaming cpu and that is what I expected. What I didn't expect is to get as much performance as this has for the price. I can't comment on the built in Intel graphics, because I use a discrete GPU, but anyone that has used integrated graphics knows about that, although things are beginning to change.

The price and performance of this processor are simply amazing, it is definitely up to productivity multitasking, HD/Blu-Ray playback, and moderate gaming.

Here is a short comparison with the exact same graphics card and similar components of my old rig based off a Core 2 Duo E6600 overclocked from 2.4ghz to 3.1ghz.

Pentium G620 2.6ghz vs Core 2 Duo E6600@3.1ghz on 3D Mark Vantage (preset = performance)

Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. P8P67-M PRO -- EVGA NFORCE 680i LT SLI
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 -- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
Processor clock: 2600 MHz -- 3100 MHz
Memory: 4096 MB Kingston 9 @ 667 MHz -- 4096 MB Corsair 7 @ 400 MHz
3DMark Vantage Score: 8186.34 -- 8205.65
CPU Score: 6192.24 -- 5151.86
Graphics Score: 9170.77 -- 10226.

I bought a G620 as an essentially disposable placeholder until Ivy Bridge arrives. It's being used with a Biostar z68 motherboard, 2x4GB of GSkill DDR3 2133 memory, and two Crucial SSDs in RAID0.

The current price on Amazon is about as good as it gets. Auction sites advertise the G620 for eight dollars less, but that's for the OEM version that doesn't come with a three year warranty or a stock heatsink/fan. And "no," you don't have to throw the stock cooler away.

I realize that some reviewers just can't live with a CPU cooler that isn't large enough and complex enough to double as the warp coil on the Starship Enterprise. Regardless, the boxed Intel cooler is both quiet and efficient. Temps are around 95 degrees F (35 C) at idle and never exceed 128 F (53 C) at full tilt. Full speed on the stock fan is just under 2,000 RPM, but the Biostar motherboard chooses to run the fan at roughly 1,250 RPM at idle and 1,500 RPM at 100% utilization.

The low temperatures and slow fan speeds are directly attributable to the energy efficiency of the G620. My UPS measures the amount of power drawn from the wall socket. As best as I can judge, the G620 draws 15 watts at idle and 40 watts at 100%. The 65 watt spec is unrealistically pessimistic.

Intel's specs state that the G620 is limited to running memory at DDR3 1066. However, the Biostar motherboard has the GSkill memory running at DDR3 1600 without any input from me. It's unlikely that this actually translates into a significant performance increase, but it was a pleasant surprise.

The G620's CPU multiplier of 26 is locked upwards but unlocked downwards. The Biostar motherboard automatically reduces the multiplier to 16 at low utilization. This contributes to the low idle temperature.
