How big is the difference between i5 2400 and i5 2500 and e8400?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
So yeah first

1) How big in performance between I5 2400 and I5 2500?

2) how big difference between I5 2400 and e8400?

3) How big the difference between I5 2500 and e8400?

4) How big is the difference IN PERFORMANCE between socket 1155 and 775?

thank you.
yeah yeah...

1) 200MHz for the 2500

2) 100MHz for the 2400

3)100MHz for the 2500

4) Not much....Atleast your E8400 will overclock.buttkick.gif

Look, not to make this a Wolfdale vs Sandy Bridge imo the SB doesn't offer alot to the game. Both are about the same in clock and they both have 6MB of cache. I don't see the big thing here. Its like when we went from Conroe to Wolfdale imo.

Problem is sandy bridge has about 40% better ipc then wolfdale

Sandy Bridge will overclock much higher than an E8400...

And just because they have the same clock speeds means nothing. Sandy Bridge will way outperform the E8400 clock for clock.

it's NOT the same as Conroe to Wolfdale.

Completely different
From what i remember - correct me if im wrong,
SB is 32nm while Wolf is on 45
SB is a few years new, why would intel release somethign with the same clock speed and expect it to perform the same?
SB would woop a Wolf's butt clock for clock, run cooler, take less power, and is the new mainstream.

Its an apples to oranges comparison, a better comparison would be a q9650 vs the new i5-2600k.

They used the same tactic in one of the news threads about how one of the SB chips outperformed a C2D by 80%, yet they didnt mention that they were comparing a dual to a quad core with a die shrink with a 300mhz base clock advantage and the ability to use turbo boost.

as of right now, im not all too impressed with what SB has to offer, im gonna stick with what I have.

well Am not going to do any overclocking because i dont have time. So all am asking for how they are all compared in performance?

How do you know sandy bridge will overclock more?! proof.gif The chip hasen't even been released yet and your saying things like this? The freaking stock clock is at 3.7 for the 2500K and 3.8 for the 2600K, it doesn't look like there is going to be much room for overclocking with these chips....Plus you can only overclock the multiplier on these chips which doesn't give nearly as much performance vs overclocking the normal way....IMO the mainstream sandy bridge chips are just going to be a disappointment, hold out for LGA 2011 chips they should be beastly.

2500K/2600K are at 3.4Ghz. Turbo takes them up to 3.9Ghz. They also support DDR3 2200 memory so uncore and memory bandwidth won't be an issue.

You 1366 guys are so whiney. lachen.gifbiggrin.gif

If you dont plan on overclocking at all, the I5-2500 will outperform your E8400 quite a bit. Its got two more cores and runs at a higher frequency. 300mhz stock and 700mhz with turbo enabled.

But then again, you could also get a similar performance increase by picking up a Q9550/Q9650 and OC'ing it to the same frequency, which with your board should be ridiculously easy. It will perform a bit under the I5-2500, but I dont imagine at the same clock the difference is gonna be anything earth shattering.
