Intel Core i5-2405S Review
Published: 31st August 2011 | Source: Intel | Price: |
The latest in the LGA1155 line of CPUs is the i5-2405S. Whilst many processors get bigger and better with more speed, ever tinier nm processes etc, this is squarely aimed at the energy efficient, low-power end of the market.
With a TDP of only 65W and a clock speed of 2.5GHz this is either a serious attempt to lower the energy consumption of businesses or, like the famed 65W E6800, a potential powerhouse.
Let's find out which one it is shall we.
A quick glance through the specification table and we see that this is pretty much a standard Core i5 processor. We have four non-HT cores, a bit of Turbo performance boost, all very standard fare.
The big change with the i5-2405S compared to, for example, the Core i5-2500K we use in our Sandy Bridge bench rig is the much tighter multiplier restrictions that limit overclocking potential and the obvious reduction from a TDP of 95W to 65W.
