"Intel is making another push with the Intel Core i5 2500K. The Core i5 2500K is based off of the new Sandy Bridge architecture. The i5 2500K has a base frequency of 3.3GHz, a max turbo frequency of 3.7GHz, and is loaded with 6MB of L3 cache. There are 4 cores but no hyperthreading support, so 4 threads as well. The "K" version of the i5 2500 puts the Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor on die, instead of the 2000. The "K" version also means fully unlocked and flexible overclocking capabilities. LGA-1155 will be the new socket to hold the latest Intel Core processors. There is support for Intel's new AVX instruction set, Intel's Quick Sync Video, and Virtualization."
