Core i3 3220 vs Pentium G2120 Tags: CPUs Core Minecraft Servers Last response: December 29, 2012 7:44 PM in CPUs Share Altiris December 29, 2012 7:04:24 PM I am building a budget Linux Server to host Minecraft. The minecraft server uses only 1 core so which which would be better for the price, the G2120 or the i3 3220? My upload speed is 24mbps, download is 34 Mbps, ping is 10-15. Another thing, is a Western Digital 500GB 7200rpm SATA 3 fast enough to host the server?

Both of these CPUs are Ivy bridge btw. | Report abuse Reply to Altiris Kamen_BG CPUs Authority December 29, 2012 7:37:33 PM Yeah we know that both CPU as based on the Ivy Bridge archetecture. If the server uses only one core, then go with the G2120, otherwise the Core i3 is the obvious choice. | Report abuse Reply to Kamen_BG Altiris December 29, 2012 7:44:06 PM Alright thanks | Report abuse Reply to Altiris Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Core i3 3220 vs Pentium G2120> Related ressources: ForumPentium G2120 vs i3 3220 ?
