Indeed it should. You'd think I'd spot it in bold wouldn't you?

Those charts look oddly GPU limited, I expect if they benchmarked in the multiplayer where CPU grunt is needed more the results would be more varied.

Still a great result for the price.

Yep, they probably are although it basically points to you not needing anything faster if you're using up to a GTX 770. There's always going to be a difference between single and multiplayer testing too but the latter is practically impossible to test repeatably.

I'd have liked to have seen the results for the G3258 at stock speed, to compare against the overclocked result. As it stands, we know that Scan have managed to get a G3258 from 3.2GHz to 4.5GHz, but we don't know what actual impact that overclock has on performance, which seems a little bit pointless.

+1 with that.. Bit-tech review? It seems it may be worth swapping my i3-4130 for one of these..?

As soon as we get our mits on one yes - we're hoping review samples will be with us soon. So long as you have a Z87 or Z97 board then yes, it's potentially faster than a Core i3-4130 but I'd wait for the review of course to see the whole picture

Try running a scientifically sound, repeatable and comparable benchmark run on a multiplayer server where the results are as much dependant on the other (human) players as on the fact it is multiplayer...

True, but the Single player isn't exactly CPU heavy.

From the 3XS Site..
Quote:
Like a K edition Core i5 or i7, the G3258 has an unlocked bus multiplier.
This means, that although it runs at a comparatively slow 3.2GHz out of the box, it can be easily overclocked to 4.5GHz.
Despite only officially support 1333MHz DDR3 we’ve also had no problems running at the G3258 with 2133MHz Corsair Vengeance DDR3.
At these sort of overclocked frequencies the Pentium G3258 makes mincemeat of most games, running them at the same frame rate as a £200 more expensive Core i5 or i7.
Here's hoping that carries across the board! Could be THE perfect budget gaming chip! (Well, at least for the next few years untill everything turns heavily multi-thread..)

Bf4 multi is not a repeatable benchmark only way would be closed server with bots. Also not sure its CPU limited on the Gpu in question. As that Gpu will run out of legs before the CPU will.

For the cost if these figures go across a range of games then there's no douting the potential it could have at the low to mid range of the market. Could give Intel an advantage in a segment they have been behind in for long periods of time.

Would prefer to see crysis 3 used if using FPS games over any of the 2 bf games.

Competition at the low end is never a bad thing, choice is always nice to have.

I know Scan have said that they used some 2133MHz RAM, but it'd be interesting to see if this actually makes any difference to performance. Come on Bit, get a chip and get reviewing!

The chip may match an i7-4770K in games that do not require more than two threads. However, you cannot say that it keeps up with it, as it simply won't in all circumstances.

I'm keeping my eye out for a cheap, but good Z87 board so that I can a few Pentium chips to have a play with. They seem like cheap fun, but I got rid of my Z87 board and 4770K not too long ago.

Definitely interested to see the power figures on this sort of overclock, whether different RAM speeds make any noticeable difference (they don't usually) and across a variety of SP and MP games.

It's somewhat telling that the stock 4GHz i7 is no faster than the stock 3.5GHz i5 – definitely a completely GPU limited test. Need to see the stock scores for the Pentium as well… look forward to a proper test.

Can they re-test in a game that makes use of more threads, Crysis 3 for example. The Pentium will most likely get walked all over by even the i3 let alone an i7.
