  1. I'd guess something around a g620 or below. You might do a little bit better with the extra core in heavily threaded apps, and probably slightly worse in single threaded ones.

    The Athlon X3 455 vs. an i3 2100: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/202?vs=289

    And the Athlon vs. a Pentium G620: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/202?vs=406

    So, it can hang with the SB Pentium there (and beat it in a lot of cases), but not with the i3.
