Intel Pentium Gold G6405

The Pentium Gold G6405 is a 2 core CPU from Intel released in 2021. This chip has an average overall score at 17% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is a good processor for gaming, with a score of 34%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the Pentium Gold G6405 scores 13% and 12% respectively. Indeed, this is an average rating for very heavy workloads.

The Pentium Gold G6405 has 2 cores and 4 threads. This CPU makes use of simultaneous multithreading technology to improve performance on parallel tasks. Each physical CPU core is divided into multiple logical processors. This Intel CPU has a clock speed of 4.1 GHz.

As for memory, the Pentium Gold G6405 makes use of DDR4-2666 memory. The faster the memory, the better. Faster memory means that the CPU doesn't have to wait to get the data it needs. It can accommodate a maximum of 128 GiB of memory. Furthermore, this chip can handle up to 2 channels of RAM, a multichannel memory architecture allows for higher data transfer between the CPU and the memory. However, to take advantage of this, you must have enough memory slots filled.

This CPU has fast connectivity with support for PCI-Express Gen 3. The faster the PCIe link, the better. This allows for better performance with GPUs and NVME SSDs. It has a total of 16 PCIe lanes.

Power and thermals for the Intel Pentium Gold G6405 CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 58 watts. This measures the amount of heat the processor produces when running at full load. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's good estimate.
