In terms of overall gaming performance, the Intel Celeron G4920 3.2GHz is noticeably better than the AMD Opteron 8380 when it comes to running the latest games. This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to achieve more of their gaming performance potential.

The Celeron G4920 3.2GHz was released over three years more recently than the Opteron 8380, and so the Celeron G4920 3.2GHz is likely to have far better levels of support, and will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Opteron 8380 when running the latest games.

The Opteron 8380 has 2 more cores than the Celeron G4920 3.2GHz. With 4 cores, the Opteron 8380 is much less likely to struggle with the latest games, or bottleneck high-end graphics cards when running them.

More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. Problematically, unless the two CPUs are from the same family, this can only serve as a general guide and nothing like an exact comparison, because the clock cycles per instruction (CPI) will vary so much.

The Celeron G4920 3.2GHz and Opteron 8380 are not from the same family of CPUs, so their clock speeds are by no means directly comparable. Bear in mind, then, that while the Celeron G4920 3.2GHz has a 0.7 GHz faster frequency, this is not always an indicator that it will be superior in performance, despite frequency being crucial when trying to avoid GPU bottlenecking. In this case, however, the difference is probably a good indicator that the Opteron 8380 is superior.

Aside from the clock rate, the next-most important CPU features for PC game performance are L2 and L3 cache size. Faster than RAM, the more cache available, the more data that can be stored for lightning-fast retrieval. L1 Cache is not usually an issue anymore for gaming, with most high-end CPUs eking out about the same L1 performance, and L2 is more important than L3 - but L3 is still important if you want to reach the highest levels of performance. Bear in mind that although it is better to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck.

The Celeron G4920 3.2GHz and the Opteron 8380 have the same L2 cache size, but the Opteron 8380 has a 6142 MB bigger L3 cache, so in this area, it wins out over the Celeron G4920 3.2GHz.

The maximum Thermal Design Power is the power in Watts that the CPU will consume in the worst case scenario. The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU - the smaller this is, the more transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections. For both the lithography and the TDP, it is the lower the better, because a lower number means a lower amount of power is necessary to run the CPU, and consequently a lower amount of heat is produced.

The Celeron G4920 3.2GHz has a 24 Watt lower Maximum TDP than the Opteron 8380, and was created with a 45 nm smaller manufacturing technology. What this means is the Celeron G4920 3.2GHz will consume significantly less power and consequently produce less heat, enabling more prolonged computational tasks with fewer adverse effects. This will lower your yearly electricity bill significantly, as well as prevent you from having to invest in extra cooling mechanisms (unless you overclock).

The Celeron G4920 3.2GHz has an on-board GPU, which means that it will be capable of running basic graphics applications (i.e., games) without the need for a dedicated graphics card. The Opteron 8380, however, does not, and you will probably have to look for a dedicated card if you wish to use it at all.

On-board GPUs tend to be fairly awful in comparison to dedicated cards from the likes of AMD or Nvidia, but as they are built into the CPU, they also tend to be cheaper and require far less power to run (this makes them a good choice for laptops). We would recommend a dedicated card for running the latest games, but integrated GPUs are improving all the time and casual gamers may find less recent games perform perfectly acceptably.

CPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Intel Celeron G4920 3.2GHz is a budget CPU based on the 14nm Coffee Lake micro-architecture with many of its features disabled, including Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading. It offers 2 Cores, clocked at 3.2GHz and integrated graphics clocked at 350MHz (1.05GHz in Turbo Mode) and the memory controller supports DDR4-2400. It's expected to consume up to 51 Watts and offers 2MB of L3 Cache. Its gaming performance is relatively average and on a level with previous Broadwell-based dual-core CPUs (Core i3).Opteron is AMD's x86 server and workstation processor line, and was the first processor which supported the AMD64 instruction set architecture (known generically as x86-64). It was released on April 22, 2003 with the SledgeHammer core (K8) and was intended to compete in the server and workstation markets, particularly in the same segment as the Intel Xeon processor. Processors based on the AMD K10 microarchitecture (codenamed Barcelona) were announced on September 10, 2007 featuring a new quad-core configuration. The most-recently released Opteron CPUs are the Piledriver-based Opteron 4300 and 6300 series processors, codenamed "Seoul" and "Abu Dhabi" respectively.
