Intel Core i5 655K

ITP.net

  • Excerpt: Intel designed its Core i5 655K CPU for system builders interested in producing inexpensive pre-overclocked systems. Intel reckons this is possible since it has given the 655K an unlocked multiplier so high-end (i.e. expensive) motherboards with tweak-friendly BIOSs are not needed for overclocking.

Intel Core i5-655K Processor BX80616I5655K

Benchmark Reviews
2 August 2010
  • Conclusion: The Core i5 655K performed decently against other CPUs. Thanks to features like Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading, this sample was able to outperform the Athlon II X3 in nearly all the tests when they were targeted at multi-core solutions. Of course, if the benchmark measured pure raw Gigahertz, the Core i5 655K performed even better than 4-cores processors thanks to its higher frequency.

  • Excerpt: If you're looking for an easily overclockable upgrade chip for your LGA 1156-based PC, you might find the 655K appealing, but most users will find better value in other Intel or AMD CPUs.
  • Pros: Brings easy overclocking to midrange Intel CPUs
  • Cons: At stock settings, can't match performance of certain less costly Intel/AMD CPUs

Intel's Core i7-875K and i5-655K processors

techreport.com
28 May 2010
  • Summary: Like I said, it's good to be king. Intel has calibrated its response to the Phenom II X6 quite carefully, and the result is a clean sweep. At stock clock speeds, the Core i7-875K is a better performer than the Phenom II X6 1090T—just a little bit in multithreaded applications, but quite a lot in single-threaded ones. The 875K is also a (very slightly) better value. When both CPUs are overclocked, the 875K retains its performance lead.

Intel Core i7-875K and Core i5-655K Unlocked Processor Review

PC Perspective
27 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Intel has come a long way in the decade we have been covering them at PC Perspective, as has much of the enthusiast industry. While many of readers may not remember a time without overclocking and days when manufacturers like AMD and Intel and VIA strictly forbade it, that time was actually not too long ago.

  • Excerpt: In this modern age of multi-core CPUs, can dual-core really cut it in an enthusiast chip? Intel obviously thinks so. How else to explain the Core i5 665K?

Intel Core i5 655K

21 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Opisywany procesor to układ dwurdzeniowy, ale potrafiący dzięki technologii Hyper Threading symulować pracę dwóch wątków na każdym z rdzeni. Jego nominalny mnożnik to x24, co daje zegar 3,2 GHz. Dzięki trybowi Turbo Boost może on zostać podbity do x25 przy aktywnych dwóch rdzeniach (zegar 3,33 GHz), lub x26 przy jednym rdzeniu (zegar 3,46 GHz).
  • Pros: Bardzo dobra wydajność, Bardzo podatny na overclocking, Łatwe podkręcanie dzięki odblokowanemu mnożnikowi, Zebranie wielu doskonałych rozwiązań w jednym układzie
  • Cons: Przeciętny, zintegrowany układ graficzny, Mała liczba linii PCI-Express, Wysoka cena jak na rozwiązanie „budżetowe”
