Intel Expands Ivy Bridge Lineup with Budget Chips



+ Add a Comment


Why buy a duel core i3 for $117 when a amd 6300 6 core is $130 and passmark list it right next to the i52550k for $100 less
i have the 6300 and i turned off all the auto core clocking crap and set it to run native at 4.1 ghz all the time and it is allot faster then my sons i5-2550 and running intel burn in never gets over 59c



I don't get it. Is it really that hard to think of an original name?

Why confuse people using chip names that most everyday users will think are 10 year old parts?



I wish they'd never reused a single name so that I would have the joy of learning a new convoluted naming scheme every few months.
