Intel Core i5-2405S Review

SiSoft Sandra

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.

Seems pretty pointless to release this when it offers nothing but a lower TDP and who would buy this when you can get the 2500k for the same money which you can also overclock

Even if you don't go for the 2500k the non K 2500 is still cheaper and faster than the 2405S.Quote

There's also the i5 2500T as well which is only 45W, but that's even more expensive than the 2500K.Quote
