Intel testing, dual vs. quad at the same price
We got some benchmarks of Core i5 2400, the new Sandy Bridge core with 6MB of cache 3.1GHz core clock and four cores and four threads. The Core i5 2400 also features Turbo and can run at much higher clocks than 3.1GHz, all depending on Turbo 2 conditions and current thermal environment.

Intel decided to compare current Core i5 650 3.2GHz core with 4MB of cache and two cores and four threads including Turbo to a new Sandy Bridge part.
In Sysmark 2007 business application test Core i5 2400 is some 20 percent faster than the old core but in 3D rendering in Cinebench 10.0 it can get 84 percent faster simply as it has two more cores.
Continuing in 3Dmark Vantage overall 3D graphics performance, Core i5 2400 will deliver a 19 percent higher score while in 3Dmark Vantage CPU test that includes Game Physics and AI the new part can score 82 percent faster.
