Intel’s most popular family member looks better than ever. The 2nd generation Intel Core i5 processor delivers even more performance automatically when you need it and now has a better visual PC experience built-in. With Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, the 2nd generation Intel Core i5 processor increases your PC’s speed automatically for your demanding applications. It also includes built-in graphics and a rich set of new features for a stunning and seamless visual PC experience with no additional hardware required. That's visibly smart performance with a boost.

  • newegg Fully integrated Microarchitecture on 32nm Process The Intel microarchitecture codename Sandy Bridge is an incredible leap in processor integration and manufacturing introduced in the 2nd generation Intel Core processor family. Manufactured entirely on Intel 32nm process technology, Sandy Bridge unifies processor cores, memory controller, last-level cache (LLC), and graphics and media processing. Such tight integration enables a host of performance and efficiency improvements, including fast access by cores and graphics to shared data in the last-level cache which accelerate graphics processing, fewer buses over which data and signaling must travel for faster processing, and more memory bandwidth for the cores to boost system performance.
  • newegg Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 More intelligent, energy-efficient, and dynamic than the previous generation, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 gives you accelerating performance when you need it. It delivers an even greater automatic speed increase by allowing processor and graphics cores to run faster than the base operating frequency for demanding applications if the processor is operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.
  • newegg Intel Smart Cache Intel Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Integrated DDR3 Memory Controller Integrated memory controller enables two channels of DDR3 1333 MHz memory, resulting in up to 21 GB/sec memory bandwidth. Plus the memory controller's lower latency and higher memory bandwidth delivers amazing performance for data-intensive applications.
  • newegg Built-in Visuals The 2nd generation Intel Core processors integrate a suite of technologies built right into the processor that deliver stunning visual experiences. Intel Quick Sync Video is breakthrough hardware acceleration that makes fast work of creating, editing, synchronizing, and sharing your videos at home and on the internet. Built-in Intel HD Graphics enables superior mainstream gaming and 3D experiences – without the need for a discrete graphics card. Enjoy stunning visual quality and color fidelity for spectacular HD playback and immersive web browsing with Intel Clear Video HD Technology, plus the ultimate 3D visual experiences seamlessly from your PC with Intel InTru 3D Technology.
  • newegg Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x) Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC. By abstracting the software away from the underlying hardware, a world of new usage models opens up that reduce costs, increase management efficiency, strengthen security, while making your computing infrastructure more resilient in the event of a disaster.

5 out of 5 eggsjust WOW! amazing

Pros: it's an i5, this specific one is ranged on cpumark under High End CPU's chart list fairly close to some of the fastest cpu's on the market today. with an average of around 5500 CPU mark at the stock 2.9Ghz "TURBO @ 3.2Ghz" im sure under unlocked conditions running at turbo speed 3.2Ghz you'd be able to get even better cpu mark scores and better frame rates under certain situations. upgrading out of the old Pentium dual core most recently,and even compared to a nice old Intel Q6600 at 2.9Ghz this i5 blows anything else i have owned right out of the water! with a windows rating score at stock 2.9Ghz brings a nice 7.4 score rating on this CPU. any game i have ran with it never even comes close to 100% usage, typically under 80% GTA IV benchmark draws 67% usage on this i5. and its quite fast enough to record gameplay without bottle necking and loosing too many fps,even when recording at full quality and resolution.

Cons: its not a 3930k LOL.
-no cons other then its not overclockable past the turbo speed 3.2Ghz. no big deal for me personally. at 2.9ghz stock its plenty fast enough

Other Thoughts: it seemlessly runs any and all applications and games i throw at it. BF3 GTA NFS and mroe to be tested soon. BF3 runs flawless at a steady 56-60FPS even in 64 player servers. with medium or high settings. anything beyond that, i will blame my GPU for as im only running an older HD 5770.
the price may seem intimidating, but it is WELL worth it for how well it performs, i will never go back to anything slower then my Q6600, that chip in specific as well isnt very bad either. the new sandy bridge architecture and the super fast high amounts of L cache really make a massive difference in even normal every day usage in response time in stuff such as program opening, and windows features like startup shutdown and hibernation of your system 5/5 a must have for any high end builds. even being an i5 it's still one of the best in the i5 series.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Fast
Intel HD support

Cons: Stock cooler feels flimsy

Other Thoughts: This processor is fast. Don't feel like I would need an i7 chip compared to this one. Able to save money on initial build by using Intel HD until able to get a dedicated graphics card.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for gaming

Pros: I only use it for gaming, and it does so very well.
Playes nice with my 5970

Cons: Idles around 50C on air, and gets to higher 80's on full load. I would water cool it, but my case has no room, (Mini ITX). I personalyl do not like to see such high temps, but it is normal for Intel to be that hot

5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy I Chose This One

Pros: Everything there is to say here has already been said... it's fast, efficient, affordable, etc. Don't think you're going to hurt your performance by taking this over a 2500K or an Ivy Bridge chip... the bottleneck is not in the CPU anymore (it's in disk I/O).

Cons: Nothing, if you're honest.

Other Thoughts: I spent a lot of time thinking about all the options... K series, P series, going all in on an i7, going pure budget with an i3... in the end, I'm really happy to go with the bottom end of the i5 series.

I snatched mine during the Thanksgiving Day sales... it was $20 bucks cheaper for a few hours and I was ready to jump on it. Was also lucky to have a 20% off coupon so I ended up getting it for about the same price as the lower i3's. :)

I'm not much of a tweaker so that's why I didn't go with a K series... it's just not worth it if you aren't planning on doing any overclocking anyway. All of the i3, i5 and i7 Sandy/Ivy Bridge chips are overwhelmingly fast and powerful... you really can't go wrong with any of them.

I wanted to stay on target with my budget so I didn't make the jump to the i7's and I don't think it hurt me in the least... again, all these chips have loads of performance.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Processor is running PERFECTLY. I've been streaming League of Legends, Diablo 3, Battlefield 3, and other games with no feeling of strain whatsoever on the processor. Everything still runs smooth, I couldn't ask for anything better! (Well I could, but my wallet says no)

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsBest CPU

Pros: This blows my previous Phenom II X4 955 out of the water. Never going back with AMD! Intel HD Graphics are pretty amazing too! But a dedicated graphics card would be best if youre gaming.

Cons: NONE

5 out of 5 eggsFast And Price Effective

Pros: Fast
Responsive
Runs all games and programs perfectly

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Power House, have it overclocked to 3.2ghz, I see no reason why I should spend a hundred dollars more for an i7. I play all games, while burning, downloading and surfing the web without a hiccup. Running a Samsung 120 gb SSD, 8Gb of Ram, XFX 5770 and a 650w silverstone PS. I have not had any issues with anything what so ever...
