In practice, this translates to a significant drop in performance. With an index of 49, the G620T is 14% slower than the G620 (index 56). In comparison to the AMD offer, it is down on the latest generation Phenom II X2 and Athlon II X3.

What's most interesting here is of course the power consumption levels. At idle, there's no difference between the Pentium G620T and the standard G620. When using the integrated graphics circuit, we took a reading of 46 Watts for both. In full load, there's a gain but it isn't all that significant: 78 Watts on the G620 and 68 Watts on the T version.
For a more detailed analysis of the dual core Pentium G600s, we refer you to our test of the Pentium G620. Lastly, don't forget that our performance index gives you an overall view of performances for all the processors we've reviewed so far.

- Low power consumption
- Graphics solution can replace discrete graphics for office document usage
- Performances up on previous generation at equal clock
- Not the fastest out there of course
- Graphics part too limited for gaming
A good entry level processor which offers sufficient all round office document level usage. In such a framework, the impressive energy management is also worth bearing in mind. The few Watts gained in intensive use of this T version don't entirely justify its higher tariff however.
