Intel Core i5-2405S Processor Review @ APH Networks - PCSTATS.com Intel Core i5-2405S Processor Review @ APH Networks
Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 6:45PM | Filed under: CPU / Processors| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

What do you call a processor that is ten months late, uses a lot of power, and overpromises in performance but underdelivers in practice? Now it would be kind of mean to point fingers and name names here, but I promise you it is not Sandy Bridge. Earlier this year, we have reviewed a couple of Intel`s second generation Core CPUs, including the Intel Core i5-2500K and Core i3-2120 -- with both living up to everything every enthusiast raves about over and over again pretty much everywhere you go. It is simply unquestionable that these processors are superior to its predecessors and the competition in almost every way -- whether it is performance, power consumption, bang for your buck, and at least for the enthusiast oriented K-series, overclocking. With that in mind, what we have here at APH Networks this morning is yet another Sandy Bridge core CPU for review. While the Intel Core i5-2405S is not designed for overclocking (It is unfortunate it comes with a locked multiplier and a base clock you can`t play around with), the little `s` at the end of its name means there is one thing that it focuses on: Reduced TDP from 95W to 65W. Actually, before we begin, let me just clarify on one thing first. The difference between the Core i5-2400s and 2405S is the 2405S comes with Intel HD Graphics 3000 rather than 2000. Are we all good? Let`s waste no time for the details."

Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
