How Fast Is The AMD Athlon PRO?

AMD pit their Athlon PRO 200GE against the Intel Pentium G4560. A couple of differences to note :

  • The Athlon PRO 200GE runs at 3.2 GHz, while the Pentium G4560 runs at 3.5 GHz.
  • The Athlon PRO 200GE has 5 MB of L2 and L3 cache, while the Pentium G4560 only has a 2 MB L2 cache.
  • The Athlon PRO 200GE runs a 35 W TDP, while the Pentium G4560 has a 54 W TDP.
  • The Athlon PRO 200GE supports DDR4-2933 memory, while the Pentium G4560 only supports DDR4-2400 memory.

According to AMD, the Athlon PRO 200GE is slightly slower than the Pentium G4560 in CPU performance, but has 67% better graphics performance with a 35% lower TDP.

In light workloads, AMD claims that the 200GE performs just as well as the Pentium G4560.

For large enterprises whose IT teams have to deploy hundreds or thousands of PCs, this may matter more. According to a third-party study commissioned by AMD, deploying an AMD system is no different than deploying an Intel system – they both take the same number of steps.

In fact, the study also showed that it takes an IT team slightly less time to deploy an AMD system than an equivalent Intel system. This may not matter much with a few systems, but when you are dealing with a hundreds or thousands of systems, it could mean hours and days saved.
