 MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU THINK ! by brianthesnail

Theres been many intel processors to choose from over the last few years,however with most people having to watch their pennys your allways going to be looking for the best bang for buck
and thats exactly what the ivybridge pentiums deliver ... a 22nm cpu with a insanely low 55w tdp.... this results in ice cold idle tempertures and whisper quiet operation and good news for your electic bill
however whats so amazing about the pentium G2020 is its performance ... this can outperform many quad cores ( q6600 and phenom quads ) .. and can also come close to i3 3220 peformance at half the price
with a 2.9ghz clock speed this has some decent power .. and 3mb of smart cache ( same as i3 ) and intel HD graphics it can cope with basic desktop tasks with ease
but throw in a dedicated gpu ( such as a HD7770 or GTX650 ) and you will have a excellent budget gaming rig thats more than capable of running the latest titles at medium to high detail ( at 1920x1080 )
ive allways been a fan of budget hardware and ivybridge pentiums are by far the best budget processors around ... forget the recently reduced "athlon II quads".... these may have 4 cores but cant compete with the excellent ivybridge architecture .. and if you can afford it the G2120 or even the G2130 with a 3.2ghz clock speed would be even better ..
in summary the pentium ivybridge range of processors are great news for the budget gamers ... combine one of these with a GTX650 and you will be running crysis 3 at medium detail all day long ...
so aria have done it again ... top processor at a insanely low price .. but what else do you expect from the best tech retailer in the uk !
well done aria !
