Intel Core i5 750 Processor Review
8 February 2014
Conclusion: This left AMD to battle the existing Core 2 series and to their credit they soldiered on with the Phenom II . But trouble is ahead for AMD with the release of the Core i5 750. As things stand today, the Phenom II X4 945 costs around $170 , the 955 sells for $199 , and the 965 $245 . The Core i5 750 is set to launch at $199 and as we anticipated in our review of the Phenom II X4 965 , a price cut is in order for AMD to remain competitive.
Conclusion: Ever since Intel launched their Nehalem CPUs, the question on everybody's lips was "when will mainstream users get to see this kind of performance?", and after a few delays and false starts that day is finally here. While it's easy to pick up on where Intel's Lynnfield CPUs lack in technical terms compared to their big brother, once you look a little deeper you realise that these design decisions are actually very smart ones indeed - Boasting a triple-channel memory...
Excerpt: This isn't the first time we've looked at the Core i5 750. We first looked at it back in October 2009 when Intel first launched its ‘Lynnfield' line. We found the CPU a cracker back then and now, a few months on, the CPU is still firing on all cylinders.
Conclusion: As mentioned on Page 2 of this review, because of the integrated PCI Express controller, overclocking at stock voltage didn't prove very successful. Therefore, we went ahead and ran 1.400V through the Intel Core i5-750 at standard Intel-spec vdroop, and began testing for the maximum attainable frequency with Turbo Mode disabled.
Summary: The Intel Core i5 750 processor is a mainstream quad-core CPU that promises enthusiast-level performance for the masses. The Core i5 750 is part of Intel's most recent generation of socket 1156 processors which include not only the Intel Core i5 700-series but also several Intel Core i7 800-series chips, codenamed "Lynnfield".
Conclusion: Intel promised Nehalem-level performance with their new Lynnfield platform and they definitely delivered. In nearly all of our benchmarks today, the Core i5-750 had a clear lead over the AMD Phenom II X4 965 and the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450. In fact, in many tests, it even matched the Core i7-920. Needless to say, the BX80605I5750 kit earns top marks in performance. The Core i5-750 also scores well in construction quality.
Excerpt: Intel knows that most people will spring for the cheaper Lynnfield in most cases and enjoy a big upgrade for little money. It's hard to really point out anything wrong with this processor. It's cheap, its performance for the dollar is unrivaled in the industry and at last allows the consumer to upgrade above a socket 775 system without having to re-mortgage the house.
Intel Core i5 750 Review - Overclocking Phase-Change vs LN2
13 September 2009
Summary: Intel´s latest CPU is put to the test against their own Core 2/Quad and Core i7 series, as well as AMD´s Phenom II. We wrap up the testing with an overclocking session using phase-change and LN2 Cooling. Does the Core i5 and S1156 i7 impress?
