PCMark 7

Starting with PCMark 7, we can see that the G3258 Lightweight score isn't bad, and lines up with the i7 4770K. Although, in the more intensive PCMark score, you can see it falls behind by a decent chunk. Overclocking brings a really nice boost, and we see the Lightweight score shoot past the i7 4790k in this case. Overall, though, you can see it falls behind our more expensive CPUs in the more intensive PC Mark score.

 

HyperPi 0.99

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 0.99

Looking above, you can see the Hyper Pi score is quite behind compared to our Intel processors here. It's a little tough to score it properly due to the fact that it's only being run on two processors instead of the normal four. What you can see, though, is the massive performance boost we get when overclocking. This is what we're really loving about the new Intel processor.

 

AIDA64

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.00.1035BETA

Looking above, you can see that the synthetic benchmarks under AIDA64 are not kind to the new processor. However, since it's lacking cores and Hyper-Threading, this isn't a huge surprise. You can again see the nice boost in performance that overclocking brings to the table.

 

Memory performance on the new G3258 is strong. It's not as strong as its higher-end counter parts when it comes to Copy performance, but overall, the numbers are impressive. Though, I think the biggest surprise when it came to testing the memory performance, was the fact that our G3258 ran our 2933MHz DDR XMP profile without a single issue.
