  • Summary: If you are on the fence between the i5-2500K and i7-2600K I would suggest pairing a Z68 chipset motherboard with the i7-2600K and wait a dozen or so paychecks to purchase your graphics card of choice.

Intel Sandy Bridge - Core i7-2600K, Core i5-2500K

MBReview

  • Conclusion: The most eye-catching part of these results is the i5-2500K nearly matching the i7-870. Remember, the i7-870 features Hyper-Threading support whereas the i5-2500K does not. Impressive performance, no doubt. In Pov-Ray, the Sandy Bridge processors roll in with the best compute times.

Legion Hardware
1 February 2011
  • Summary: The Sandy Bridge architecture is very exciting as it incorporates so much into such a small package. While the architecture may not be revolutionary, it is a large step forward from the Nehalem/Westmere architectures, as it does almost everything a little better.
