|A8-5600K vs. Pentium G2120 CPU Review|
PCMark 7 performs a series of tests and gives scores in the following categories: An overall score called PCMark; a Productivity score, which is the system performance when using applications such as web browsing and home office applications; a Creativity score, which is the system performance when viewing, editing, converting, and storing photos and videos; an Entertainment score, which is the system performance when recording, viewing, streaming, and converting TV shows and movies, importing, organizing, and browsing music, and gaming; and a Computation score, which indicates the processing performance of the system. Let’s analyze the results.
The A8-5600K achieved a higher score than both its main competitors, the Pentium G2120 (17%) and the Core i3-2100 (20%), and also a higher score than the first-generation APUs we included in this review, the A8-3870K (12%) and the A8-3850 (14%).
On the productivity benchmark, the A8-5600K achieved a score similar to the A10-5800K and the Core i3-3220, a bit higher than the Pentium G2120 (4%) and substantially higher than the Core i3-2100 (15%). The A8-5600K also achieved a better score than the first-generation APUs we included in this review, the A8-3870K (20%) and the A8-3850 (23%).
On the creativity benchmark, the A8-5600K achieved the same score level as the A10-5800K, which was 5% higher than the Core i3-2100 and the Pentium G2120, 10% higher than the A8-3870K, and 11% higher than the A8-3850.
On the entertainment benchmark, the A8-5600K achieved a score much higher than its competitors, the Pentium G2120 (39%) and the Core i3-2100 (32%). The A8-5600K also achieved a better result than the A8-3870K (4%) and the A8-3850 (6%).
On the computation benchmark, the A8-5600K achieved the same performance level as the Core i3-2100 and the Pentium G2120, with a score 12% higher than the A8-3870K and 15% higher than the A8-3850.
