  1. Best answer
    Simply, ones clocked 133Mhz higher due to binning.
    The real-world difference is pretty negligible.
  2. 0.13 GHz = 5%
  3. Damn, that was fast lol. Does 5% sound worth 10 extra dollars?


    NVM...I should be answering that question myself...
  4. 5% more performance for 3.6% higher price. Worth it for people that do not overclock.
  5. Well. I was planning to overclock anyways... probably with the intel turbo boost though...
