Intel Core i7 2600K and Core i5 2500K review

Now we have seen the basic performance of the Core i5-2500k processor, we wanted to compare it against the 2.8ghz Core i5 760 processor. This is a similar four core design and has been a big seller for Intel in the past, thanks to the excellent overclocking capabilities. This page concentrates on both processors at ‘out of the box’ settings.


Huge gains all round, especially with the AES256 Crytography test.

A time saving of 27% is not to be sniffed at, shortly we will overclock the Core i5 760 to match the clock speed of the i5-2500k.

Another very impressive result for the i5 2500k processor, with 36% of the overall time saved.
