Intel Core i5-2405S Review

Sandra has always been great at managing to separate the component being tested from the rest of the system, and so it proves once again as it puts the i5-2405S through its paces. Although in this case paces is implying a level of performance that just isn't there. Perhaps putting it through its walking frame is closer to the mark.
Since we've been running wPrime tests we've often considered moving the 32M section of the test to a different graph because modern CPUs can do it so quickly it's tough to see the sliver of blue. The i5-2405S has no such problems, giving some of the (if not the) slowest times we've seen yet. 14 seconds to do the 32M test is quite slow, taking a minute and a half longer than a stock clocked 2500K is treacle-like.
