Intel Celeron G5900 + Pentium Gold G6400 Benchmarks - Low-Price Comet Lake CPUs
Written by Michael Larabel in Processors on 30 July 2020. Page 6 of 6. 12 Comments

104 benchmarks were run in total across these various low-end (and older) CPUs albeit many of the results not too interesting. When taking the geometric mean of those 104 benchmarks, the Pentium Gold G6400 fit in between the Ryzen 3 1200 and Ryzen 3 2200G overall and slightly faster than the aging Core i3 7100 Kabylake processor. The Pentium Gold G6400 was 12% faster than Athlon 3000G, however, while costing about 53% more ($70~75 versus $49). The Athlon 3000G meanwhile was 14% faster than the Celeron G5900 while costing about the same percentage more ($42 vs. $49). The Celeron G5900 overall yielded similar performance to an aging Intel Core i5 2500K Sandy Bridge processor across the mix of single and multi-threaded benchmarks and was a healthy improvement over a Core i3 Haswell CPU.

Above is a look if breaking down the results on a per-test-profile basis.

Not that I would recommend a Celeron or Pentium for gaming, but for those curious about the integrated graphics:

The UHD Graphics 610 on the Celeron G5900 and Pentium Gold G6400 often came in behind even the AMD A10-7870K and well behind the Athlon 3000G. The AMD graphics performance was better off than the aging Gen9 graphics in these Celeron/Pentium Comet Lake processors.

Perhaps most interesting from this testing is how well the AMD Athlon 3000G held up on Linux at $49 USD and for still being a Zen 1 processor showed to be a better bet all around than the cheaper Celeron G5900 or more expensive Pentium Gold G6400. But in any case, don't expect much out of $40~80 processors.

Those wanting to see how their own Linux system(s) compare to these various low-end processors on Ubuntu 20.04 can install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 2007309-SYST-LOWENDC89. Up next is for curiosity sake seeing how these budget Comet Lake CPUs compare to a Raspberry Pi 4.
