often reviewed as best value/speed, low power potential

Sommaire: Almost one month away from Ivy Bridge release - SO, the question is, if buying a year old processor now, which of the three - i3, i5, or i7. Many, many tech reviews (tomshardware, etc) comment that the i5 2500k is the better value compared to the i7. The i3 is only dual core. i7 has hyper threading and possibly faster. i5/i7 are quad core and have the hd3000. Only certain users will be able to see the difference between the i5/i7.
Лучший процессор за свои деньги - 100%! Уже легенда!

Sommaire: Собрал систему на базе этого процессора и получил идеальный компьютер! Осталось только вишенкой сверху украсить! Сама система в целом, все самые современные игры - все, как говорится, "летает"! Считаю, что его даже гнать пока не нужно - достаточно оставить включенной функцию саморазгона! Очень доволен покупкой!
Sommaire: wanted to upgrade my computer, done some research and found that the intel i5 and intel i7 processors have very little different in them, apart from the huge price. very please and very easy to fit.
Sommaire: Great CPU, super fast and the i7 doesn't seem £100 more worth it. But each to their own. It's a "k"/unlocked cpu so overclocking is easy, almost too easy. Water cooling would be essential but one could get 4.2GHz apparently from this little beast. Hackintosh capable, gives me a Geekbench score of ~9000 with my configuration so judge that for yourselves. Easily installed and a great CPU.
flat out beastly for the cost(O'C to 4.6ghz on air)

Sommaire: Bought one of these from Amazon to go in my new gaming rig. I got it overclocked to 4.6 ghz with a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ air cooler. I love how it slows it self down when its idle. I paired it with a GTX 560 and i can play Skyrim on ultra at 1920 x 1080 with around 50 fps. I've recoded a two hour dvd to H.264 in less than ten minutes. I can recode video, use spotify, surf the web and mess around with the skyrim creation kit and no real lag.
Sommaire: With intelligent performance that accelerates in response to demanding tasks, such as playing games and editing photos, the Intel Core i5 processor moves faster when you do.The Intel Core i5 processor automatically allocates processing power where it's needed most. Whether you're creating HD video, composing digital music, editing photos, or playing the coolest PC games - with the Intel Core i5 processor you can multitask with ease and be more productive than ever.
