Intel Core i5-2390T

11 Reasons why Intel Core i5-2390T is better

than the average

1.Significantly lower TDP
35Wvs 67W (the average)
vs 3W (best: Intel Atom Z670)
The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
2.Vastly faster GPU clock speed
650MHzvs 508MHz (the average)
vs 1300MHz (best: Intel Core i7-4770R)
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
3.A shade higher GeekBench result
6252vs 6191 (the average)
vs 22113 (best: Intel Core i7-4960X)
This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2016)
4.Much higher turbo clock speed
3.5GHzvs 3.3GHz (the average)
vs 5GHz (best: AMD FX-9590)
When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
5.Uses hyperthreading technology
Yesvs No (59% don't have it)
Many of Intel's processors use hyperthreading, which means that each core of the processor can work on two threads at once instead of most processors which work on a single thread per core. This means you can have significant performance gains in certain applications.
6.Substantially higher PassMark result (single)
1712vs 1444 (the average)
vs 2546 (best: Intel Core i7-4790K)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using a single thread.
7.Sizably more performance per watt
179vs 132 (the average)
vs 396.87 (best: Intel Core i7-4720HQ)
This means the CPU is more efficient, giving a greater amount of performance for each watt of power used.
8.Has Intel Quick Sync Video
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
This allows very fast video transcoding times, for example when ripping a DVD or Blu-ray to your computer.
9.Considerably higher clock multiplier
27vs 24 (the average)
vs 47 (best: Intel Core i7-4870HQ)
The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
10.Faster GPU turbo speed
1100MHzvs 1050MHz (the average)
vs 1350MHz (best: Intel Core i7-3940XM)
When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
11.Somewhat higher SSE version
4.2vs 4.1 (the average)
vs 4.2 (best: Intel Core i7-4770K)
SSE is used to speed up multimedia tasks such as editing an image or adjusting audio volume. Each new version contains new instructions and improvements.
