  • Confusion lurks within Intel's Core processor lineup. Case in point: The Core i3-540 beats the general performance of the otherwise higher-class Core i5-750! ...

  • With these new processors, Intel is offering an LGA1156 platform with performance/energy consumption ratios never seen before! The Clarkdales are as fast as the entry level Socket 775 quad cores, but with energy consumption on a par with entry level du...

  • Core i3 540 is logically faster, but the additional 130 MHz come with a $15 price tag, and that brings this processor into the upper market class, ruled by quad core processors. There's little room here for Core i5 600, let alone Core i3 540, which is...

  • For the new Clarkdale models Intel wants to have between 113 and 284 USD. So the Euro prices are most likely to stay at the same level, but are expected to drop into the area between 90 to 240 Euros soon. For gamers the quad-core Core i5-750, which co...

  • Abstract:  I swear this is the longest it’s taken for an Intel architecture to penetrate the market. We first met Nehalem on November 3rd, 2008. It came to us as a high end quad-core processor and took a full year to make it to more affordable motherboards in th...

  • These Clarkdale processors are complex beasts. To get a handle on what we think of them, we should break things down into several pieces. As a CPU technology, Clarkdale is excellent. I can't get over how the Core i5-661 kept nearly matching the Core 2...

  • Abstract:  Summing up everything we have just said, we can only state that the launch of new LGA1156 processors has significantly expanded the application field for this platform. It became a truly mainstream and universal platform, because now there are almost any kinds of LGA1156 processors available: starting with the cheapest..

  • The new Core i5 6xx and Core i3 5xx series of processors are now amongst the fastest dual-core processors money can buy. Even some qu...

  • When we first heard about Clarkdale processors we were mightily skeptical since a dual-core/four-thread processor design had never been attempted before and Intel was not exactly known for their top-notch integrated graphics processor (IGPs). However, ...
