Summary: Intel's Core i5-4570 processor is a well-balanced CPU that offers some, but not all, of the power of a Core i7, making it ideal for occasional photo editing or video work at a lower price. Pros: + Integrated graphics adequately handle gaming at low settings. + General performance is close to that of the Intel Core i7-4770K. Cons: - Same 84-watt power usage as higher-end CPUs. - No Hyper-Threading or overclocking support. - On-chip graphics lag behind AMD offerings.
Summary: Overall, I recommend this CPU for a heavy user who doesn't want to blow $500 on an i7.
Pros: This CPU is really great. I wanted a low power but high performance CPU for development, gaming, and normal computer use. This i5 really delivered. It runs lots of applications at once with no problem. Start-up takes less than 45 seconds. When it comes to gaming, it didn't let down either. It ran high CPU intensity games like Planetside 2 and KSP while keeping framerate drops to a minimum. All of this while only using 84 W and never going above 55 degrees with the sto...
Summary: I was in a quandary with regard to a CPU when I decided to replace a dead motherboard. I looked at Intel Core i7 CPUs but decided that was more speed and performance I really needed. I'm not a gamer and not a power user; so the Core i5 looked like a better investment. But the Core i5 4670 cost almost as much as the Core i7 processors. So, I went with this CPU (a little cheaper without a huge hit on performance), hoping it would be good enough for my modest computer use.
