Heyyy i'm kinda concerned, and i wanted to know the difference between the intel i5 650, and the intel i5 750. I Have the intel i5 650, and i feel like i got a junky CPU. Even though i might be wrong since i do not know the difference. Can anyone tell me what is the difference, and if it's still good that i have the intel i5 650! I Kno that intel CPU's last longer, and i'm glad that my pc will be living for awhile since it's only 1 month old! So please tell me what the deal is?


Thanks

The 650 is a dual core, the 750 is a quad. If you got the 750 then you would have 2 more cores. Obviously it's better, but if your currently happy performance wise with your 650 I don't know why you are worrying.

Just because the 750 is better, doesn't mean the 650 is bad. The 650 is a pretty beefy dual.

Heh, not like it really matters anyway. Most people won't see their CPU die on them, it usually gets replaced in 3-5 years.
True.

Unless you're pushing the voltage and clock speeds at ridiculous amounts, you really shouldn't worry.

By the time it's on its last hinges people will be asking, what's a Core i5?

The i5 650 is a dual core with hyperthreading, so it has
2 cores and 4 threads all running at 3.2GHz (Idk if this has turbo off the top of my head).
The i5 750 is a quad core that doesn't have hyperthreading, so it has
4 cores and 4 threads (if it had HT, then it'd have 8) all running at 2.66, but with turbo, up to 3.2GHz.

The i5 650 is by no means a bad performer, it's just not a good CPU pricing wise, seeing as it's so close to the i5 750, which will perform a lot better.
The 750 is the obvious choice.

i5 650= 32nm Dual core with hyperthreading, runs cooler, overclocks better

i5 750= 45nm Quadcore w/o hyperthreading

You make the 650 sound better.
It will in applications that only use 2 cores (and if it's clocked higher, of course),
but the 750 will just dominate it in pretty much everything clock for clock.
