Now, with a large number of low-cost motherboard H61 emergence,The cost of LGA1155 platform have dropped significantly, so many users when DIT a new PC,They start inclined to choose an LGA1155 socket processor.Under this situation,The mainstream Pentium G620 attract a lot of people attention.After all, When compare with the last generation LGA1156 processor,which has same market postion,G620 will has better price performance.
In our previous article,We have compare the classic Pentium E5200 after overclocking with G620.Through the post of readers,We found a lot of reads are not satisfy with 4G E5200,and they want to see overclocked Core2 Duo E8400 compare with G620.Today, we will meet everyones request.

In fact,In our previous test article, We did not add E8400 because its position.At that time, E8400 price is only a little higher than $155,and the price of G620 now is only $76.From the positioning point of view, there is no direct connection between the two products.But if just from the product itself, Dual-core E8400 and G620 still has some connection.In addition, after considers , we also decided to join Core i3 2100 in test, the processor has impressive performance and the price is more reasonable, It also attract many consumers.
E8400 has another advantage, that is able to overclock.This generation of Intel processors have been limited overclocking ability,Fortunately high-end Core i5/i7 has no question, many motherboard manufacturers can use Turbo Boost technology to unlock certain frequency limit, the processor will get slightly headroom for overclocking.The Core i3 and Pentium series almost can not be overclocked.
