Intel Pentium G3240T: specs and benchmarks
Intel started Intel Pentium G3240T sales 1 April 2014. This is Haswell architecture desktop processor primarily aimed at office systems.
Compatibility-wise, this is FCLGA1150 processor with a TDP of 35 Watt. It supports DDR3-1333, DDR3L-1333 memory.
It provides poor benchmark performance at 2.00 percent of a leader's which is AMD EPYC 7763.
Of Pentium G3240T processor market type (desktop or notebook), architecture, sales start time and pricing.
Basic microprocessor parameters such as number of cores, number of threads, base frequency and turbo boost clock, lithography, cache size and multiplier lock state. These parameters can generally indicate CPU performance, but to be more precise you have to review its test results.
Information on Pentium G3240T compatibility with other computer components and devices: motherboard (look for socket type), power supply unit (look for power consumption) etc. Useful when planning a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. Note that power consumption of some processors can well exceed their nominal TDP, even without overclocking. Some can even double their declared thermals given that the motherboard allows to tune the CPU power parameters.
