Some more details of A10-5700

The Trinity A10-5700 APU brings with it improve integrated graphics , better pile driver core all while keeping the power envelope in 65 Watts – at the lower end for the desktop APUs. It makes up a great processor for gaming, especially when you do not wish to spend extra bucks on graphics card. You will find it more responsive than the Intel’s Sandy Bridge. Intel’s Ivy Bridge is better, in general, in the CPU performance while still trying to catch up AMD in the graphics front.

Some more details of Core i5-2500K

The core i5-2500K is the overclockable version of the core i5-2500. It belongs to the second generation Core i5 processor, more popularly known as the Sandy bridge Processor. There have been several improvement over the previous generation core i5 processor, most notable among them is the improvement in the integrated graphics ( x2 performance improvement). The new Turbo 2.0 further boosts the performance. In the lithography improvement the we now have a unified 32 nm die having everything on a single die. The higher passmark score of core i5-2500K with respect to the core i5-2500 only indicates that more samples sent the overclocked 2500K scores

In the next post we have compared the benchmark results of these two processors.

    It is unrealistic to compare an unlocked Intel part with a locked AMD part. The Core i5-2500K should be compared with the AMD’s A8-5800K – the 3.80 GHz unlocked part. Its CPU as well as GPU will kick the a$$ of i5-2500K
