Multiple Cores for Speedy, Multi-Threaded Performance
The Intel Core i5-650 contains two processors, or execution cores, on one integrated circuit. Combined with four threads, the Core i5-650 can simultaneously work on multiple tasks. This design produces faster and more efficient results, so your computer won't slow down--no matter how many applications you have open.

Turbo Boost Technology Gives Extra Speed When You Need It
Intel Turbo Boost Technology automatically oversees your workload, redirecting power and moderating performance for better efficiency. In the past, unused portions of a chip would be turned off, leaving some cores idle. But with Turbo Boost Technology, unused performance is now routed to active cores, boosting performance without wasting power. With Turbo Boost enabled, the Intel Core i5-650 Processor accelerates from its usual 3.2 GHz up to a maximum single-core frequency of 3.46 GHz.

Hyper-Threading for Better Efficiency
The Intel Core i5-650 Processor features Intel Hyper-Threading Technology to deliver more efficient use of resources and better performance on multithreaded software. You'll be able to run demanding desktop applications, such as music and movie creation applications, while running background applications, such as virus protection software, and still maintain system responsiveness.

Large Smart Cache for Better Media Performance
Intel Smart Cache provides performance-maximized storage for frequently accessed data. The Intel Core i5-650 has a generous 4 MB of Intel Smart Cache kept close to the processor, so there's always data feeding in. The result is better overall functionality for everyday applications and markedly improved performance for rich media titles and games.

Intel HD Graphics Built-in
With the Core i5-650, Intel HD Graphics is built right into the CPU, so you won't have to spend money on a discrete graphics card in order to get stunning results. Intel HD Graphics provides sharp images, rich color, and lifelike audio and video. Intel HD Graphics support multiple monitors, premium video such as Blu-ray Disc playback and mainstream gaming as well as a full Windows 7 experience., The Core i5-650 has a graphics core that runs at 733 MHz to maximize viewing power.

Advanced Technology to Keep Your Computer Secure
The Intel Core i5-650 has security features that make it ideal for business use. Intel Trusted Execution Technology provides a hardware-based set of extensions that enhance security capabilities, protecting your computer against software-based attacks and protecting the confidentiality and integrity of data stored on your clients' PCs.

The Intel Core i5-650 is made on a 32nm manufacturing process for better energy efficiency. It uses the LGA1156 socket and is backed by a three-year limited warranty.

Upgraded an i3 with this CPU. The change was dramatic. Although it is only a dual core chip, it shoved my index for Windows 8 up to 7.1. Great for editing video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good performance, decent video Dec 12 2010
By Tyler Soelberg - Published on

Coupled with an H55 motherboard, this processor will also do your onboard video. In desktop situations that don't require intense 3d acceleration, this is fine. That means it's fine for your grandmother, your uncle, really, anybody that doesn't plan on intense gaming, it's fine. It even handles some games on lower settings. But if you want to game, you probably aren't buying an i5 anyway. And if you are, you're certainly going to grab a discrete card.
However, this processor lives up to its marketing. Simply put, if you are trying to put a decent computer that will last a few years, or you are building some microATX boxes, this is your processor.

purchased used for 55 bones, it is a great processor for price! installed on the elitegroup H55H-m micro atx mobo with 8 gigs of ram and a128g ssd drive, it is fast, small and extremely quiet set up! the cpu fan is a clp0556 and is sooo quite! the power supply is a 500w fractal and is also very very quiet. this a a great setup! added my 6024E NI pci daq card and is working fine!
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mid-range Processor July 4 2013
By J. Willis - Published on
I've been running this processor for about 3 years with an ASUS PRO P7P55D-E MotherBd. I'd recommend this one to anyone that's looking for a solid non-gamer Desktop build. I'm not a gamer but I use the Desktop several times daily.
4.0 out of 5 stars OK budget processor, decent benchmark Dec 31 2012
By David girgis - Published on
Does everything you need, I never fully loaded my processor or used the turbo boost, but it's not for the hardcore gamer, just for your average gaming, and average work. It does a great job for what it is.
