Core i5-2500K


Description
The Core i5-2500K is a cpu manufactured by Intel released on January 2011. This model is based on Sandy Bridge architecture which codename was originally Gesher. The development began in 2005 and four years later, the first Sandy Bridge CPU was presented. The most prominent features are Intel Turbo Boost 2.0, AES encryption and SHA-1 hashing acceleration, Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 256-bit instruction set and the ability to have up to 8 physical cores or 16 logical cores through Hyper-Threading.

This model runs at 3300 MHz as base frequency but it can reach up to 3700 Mhz under some conditions with a thermal design power of 95 W. About its cache memory, this CPU has 32+32 kB level 1 cache, 256kB of level 2 cache and 6144kB of level 3 cache.

If we talk about optimized software, in its highest mode (mode II optimized for AVX), the monothread score is 29402 and the multithread score is 95543 points.

There are some CPU models pretty similar to this one like the Intel Core i5-3330 , the Intel Core I5-4460 and the Intel Core i3-6100U amongst others. To know the complete list and how similar are they, please go down on this page.
