Intel Core i5-650 vs Xeon X5470

Mini Review

Intel Core i5-650 advantages

  • The microprocessor has SSE4.2 instructions enabled.
  • The Intel Core i5-650 incorporates AES extension to the instruction set, used to accelerate AES encryption and decryption. The technology is useful if you run programs, that secure your disk or network data.
  • Like many modern CPUs, the processor integrates graphics unit. This GPU is not fast enough to play latest games with all settings on, but it can be used for casual gaming and 3D applications.
  • The CPU is 39% more energy efficient than the Intel X5470.

Intel Xeon X5470 advantages

  • The Intel Xeon X5470 packs more processing cores than the Intel i5-650 processor. Large number of cores helps this CPU to process multiple threads or processes at once.
  • Base frequency of the microprocessor is higher than the frequency of the Core i5-650 CPU.

i5-650 vs X5470 specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important characteristics of the Intel Xeon X5470 and Intel Core i5-650 microprocessors. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of extra threads, offered by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
