Benchmarks indicate 20 to 30 % what I dont understand is that the i7 860 has 4 cores and 8 threads then how come its so less powerful than the i5 750 ? More about : 750 860 Best solution andy5174 a b à CPUs March 14, 2010 12:07:13 AM 20-30% more?! No way even in synthetic benchmarks. It's more like 4-5% on average. This is due to the logical cores being substantial less powerful than the physical cores. http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=364...
