Intel Lynnfield Core i5-750 Processor Review

The Core i5 750 is the first release in a series of processors based on a mainstream version of the highly successful Intel Core i7 platform. This quad-core processor utilizes the Lynnfield architecture and offers what the Nehalem-based processor family couldn’t – an affordable mid-range processor. The price point for the i5-750 is just $199. Though limited to one thread per core without Hyper-Threading Technology, the i5-750 is clocked at 2.66 GHz, features a large 8MB L3 cache and a new version of Intel's Turbo Boost Technology that dynamically overclocks the individual processor cores depending on workload.
