INTEL I5-750 INTRODUCTION



Following the release of the i7-870 Lynnfield processor I reviewed a week ago HERE, the budget mainstream market was still waiting for a cheaper option to allow them to upgrade to a P55 based system. Sure the i7-870 was a lot cheaper than anything a Nehalem offered, but there still was a substantial market that needed a scaled back processor that was as cost effective as possible.


Because of that, Intel released a basic Lynnfield processor named the i5-750 which has a slightly scaled back clock frequency, but also has hyper-threading disabled. To the power user or media creator, this might be a concern, but most overclockers and budget conscious consumers are wetting their lips at the thought of getting into a new processor without the huge price tag. Other than that, the i5-750 is basically the same processor and shares the same turbo features, cache and memory configuration as its more expensive Lynnfield brothers.



So who should be using this processor and who should be reconsidering? Well, to all media creators needing as much processing power as possible, I would move along. But those of us who like to tweak, it might be a gateway to some cheap and fast computing. Very few programs on the market will even ponder using eight threaded core simultaneously. But to boil this down, Intel's main target for this processor is the mainstream OEM builder to combat market share leakage to AMD.


So how does this processor lineup and take on the LGA 1366 Nehalem and the older Socket 775 processors? Well read on to find out.
