  • Summary: PRO > Just what you would expect in terms of performance. CONS > Packaging is stupid and wasteful. > Did not come with thermal glue. > Booklet is worthless, why even bother? > Price sucks and will forever be that way as long as Intel can do it. Shame.

  • Summary: Pour quelqu'un qui ne veux pas overclocker ce processeur Ivy Bridge est une bonne affaire lorsqu'en solde à 200$. Par contre si on veut passer à l'overclock il faut sans hésitation ajouter 20-30$ de plus pour la version 3570K mais il faut ajouter à cela un refroidisseur plus performant que celui d'origine. Ce processeur donne une note de 7.5 sur Windows WEI soit le même score que mon bon vieux i7 920 j 3.2GHz.
  • Pros: Bon prix lorsqu'à 199.99$, Très bon rapport puissance/prix., Assez performent pour toutes les applications exigentes.
  • Cons: Rien à signaler.

Excellent performance.

  • Pros: Debated between AMD and Intel. Went with the i5 because the specs seemed better. Very nice hardware at a reasonable cost. Excellent performance.
  • Cons: I pushed my budget for this processor, originally planning a much lower-end i3. I would recommend getting the next up processor with the HD 4000 if you are not planning to add a video card. Overall the cost of adding an equivalent card is not much more than the increased cost though.

Good price/power/performance

Mark Huth, Amazon

  • Summary: I have two of these in asus Z77 motherboards. One runs Linux for my massive software raid server, and never even breaks a sweat. The case is a rack mount with limited ventilation, but there is no heat buildup problem even fully loaded. The other is in a general pupose computer my mother uses for office apps and some limted photo editing. This will run an HD video stream, like playing a BluRay, but I would not recommend trying to edit AVCHD video with this processor.

Turboboost better than expected; but not much value to this "tick"

The Irish Patient, Amazon

  • Summary: First off, understand that this review assumes that you're going to use a graphics card in your desktop computer. Do NOT buy any i5 processor except the i5-3570K if you intend to use the integrated graphics. The unlocked i5-3570K includes Intel Graphics 4000, whereas my i5-3550 and below all use Graphics 2500. The difference is very substantial and more than justifies the extra $30 to $40 for the i5-3570K.

  • Summary: Value processor. It supports many advanced viritualiseringsfunktioner which they unlocked K version does not. I also think it is in a real price-performance sweet spot. Prisvärd processor. Den stöder många avancerade viritualiseringsfunktioner vilket de upplåsta K versionerna inte gör. Jag tycker dessutom att den befinner sig i en riktig pris-prestanda sweetspot.

definitely an improvement over Sandy Bridge.

Dad "Just a DAD", Amazon

  • Summary: Received today along with a new mother board and 8gb of RAM, everything booted up first time without any issues. Allows me to run SWTOR along with a GTX 460 1024mb at max settings and getting 45-60 fps in PVP (compared to 15-20 fps at low settings with my E8400 and same video card). Stays nice and cool (Idles at 30*, at load it maxed out at 60*) For the people who are complaining about it overheating on some forums...did you install the heatsink that came with it?

  • Summary: Verdi-prosessor. Den støtter mange avanserte viritualiseringsfunktioner som de ulåst K-versjonen ikke. Jeg synes også det er i en reell pris-ytelse sweet spot. Prisvärd processor. Den stöder många avancerade viritualiseringsfunktioner vilket de upplåsta K versionerna inte gör. Jag tycker dessutom att den befinner sig i en riktig pris-prestanda sweetspot.

Preisschwankung und Leistung der i5

Wilkinson-Sword, geizhals.de
14 December 2013
  • Summary: Ich habe beobachtet das der preis am 16.06.2012 bis zum 19.06.2012 um ca 20 euro gestiegen ist ich finde das aus persönlicher sicht nicht angemessen es liegt wahrscheinlich an dem release des i3, damit er eingeordnet werden kann. So ansich gefallen mir die Leistungsdaten für den prozessor. Jedoch sollte man bei Ivy Bridge nur nach bedarf übertakten, was bei dem prozessor aufgrund des gesperrten multiplikator nur bis 4,2 ghz geht, aber in 80-90 nicht nötig ist.
