Intel Core i5-2400 vs Pentium 2117U

Mini Review

Intel Core i5-2400 advantages



Intel Core i5-2400
  • More CPU cores on the i5-2400 help to tackle multiple tasks or heavily multi-threaded applications.
  • Operating frequency of the Core i5-2400 is higher than the frequency of the Pentium 2117U processor.
  • The i5-2400 features AES technology, that accelerates AES encryption. The instructions are useful if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • The Intel i5-2400 supports AVX instructions. These extensions are not widely used in programs yet, but this should improve in future applications.
  • The i5-2400 CPU works in Socket 1155. The microprocessor can be easily removed from the socket for replacement or upgrade.

  • The Intel Pentium 2117U utilizes more efficient Ivy Bridge core, which is faster by 5% on average compared to similar clocked Sandy Bridge microprocessors.
  • Power consumption of the processor is better.

i5-2400 vs 2117U specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important 2117U and i5-2400 characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. 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. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
