The Intel Core i5 (Lynnfield) CPU is finally official, but it was already on sale in some markets around the globe and unofficial reviews have been floating around on the web already. Today several tech sites released the officially blessed reviews and benchmarks of the new Core i5 CPU. The Core i5 is more affordable than the Core i7 CPU, but is it still fast enough?
In short the Core i5 is fast, benefiting from its Turbo Boost Technology. At around $200 the Intel Core i5-750 offers great performance, but you are required to get a new motherboard and DDR3 memory. The new Core i5 means trouble for AMD as they market the price/performance value of their desktop chips. With the Core i5, Intel has a powerful CPU for an affordable price that will find many buyers this fall.
