Core i5 2500 has four cores and just as many threads

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Eight threades reserved for i7 only
Intel plans to launch two Core i5 Sandy Bridge CPUs and both of them will get stuck only with four cores doing four hyperthreaded operations.

Core i7 2600 is the name that will mean you have eight thread support while Core i5 2500 is the runner up product that works at 3.3GHz, has 6MB of cache and 3.7GHz turbo overclocking. Core i5 2500K means that it is an overclocker friendly version, meaning unlocked, while the non K Core i5 2500K is a plain normal Core i5 Sandy Bridge.

The graphics runs at 850MHz and overclocks to 1100MHz. This is still slower than 1350MHz, which the highest clock on Core i7 CPUs.

The TDP of Core i5 2500 is 95W and you can expect them to launch in early 2011, Q1 2011 to be more precise.

And this is news? This was all covered a couple of weeks ago, all of this info is even in wikipedia for a long time already.

Sorry but I hate you're articles fuad you always say inaccurate things such as

"Core i5 Sandy Bridge CPUs and both of them will get stuck only with four cores doing four hyperthreaded operations."

they are not hyperthreaded period so they are not "hyperthreaded operations" its a simple 1 thread per core. The i7 with 8 threads is hyperthreaded. You think you'd know that since first i7 920 came out.

Unless you are telling us that with Turbo overclocking and 2 cores are shut down the first 2 cores can hyperthread to four threads and it switches over to 4 real cores when it benefits more then it would make sense, but I never heard of such a thing.

So which is it? I like the articles everyone else on Fudzilla writes. Just being honest.

Speaka Englis?

Dude, seriously, this is a poorly written article and barely coherent.
It should either be re-written or pulled from the site.

Amd cpus with graphics will beat i5 both in cost and performance.

As much as I like competition, this is exceedingly unlikely. Bulldozer-based processors will likely have sweet onboard graphics, but there's basically no chance of them being performance-competitive on the CPU front, except in heavily multithreaded applications.

Ivy Bridge is meant to be still on track for 2H 2011. This just seems crazy. Intel are not going to release a whole new generation in Sandy Bridge and then replace it within 6 months!??

I guess they might just release a few 22nm parts like they did with 32nm but even that seems so unlikely right now. I mean we won't even have high-end Sand Bridge parts out yet and we will have the replacement for Sand Bridge at our door step!
