Intel Core i5-2405S Review
Published: 31st August 2011 | Source: Intel | Price: |
Since we tested the other CPUs in the graph, AIDA64 has undergone some serious tweaks under the hood and so the zLib and AES results can't be compared and should be taken as standalone results. However the CPU Queen and PhotoWorxx results are, and the low clock-speed of the i5-2405S is clearly evident as it just about keeps up with the old i5-2300.
The memory tests clearly show a bit of a hole in the write speeds, either in stock or overclocked trim. Otherwise it's about where you'd expect it to be. Those read speeds are a little cause for concern, especially considering some very rapid Kingston Genesis RAM.
