Core i5-3330 3.0GHz is a performance CPU based on the 22nm, Ivy Bridge architecture.
It offers 4 Physical Cores (4 Logical), initially clocked at 3.0GHz, which may go up to 3.2GHz and 6MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, Turbo Boost and Virtualization are activated and the processor has multiplier unlocked.
The processor integrates relatively weak Graphics called Intel HD Graphics 2500, with 6 Execution Units, initially clocked at 650MHz and that go up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode which share the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor.
Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 77W.
It is a powerful Quad Core whose performance is good. It's thus capable of running most applications smoothly without any problem.
Will i have bottleneck?
My CPU still good?
Upgrading to a R9 390x soon need to know if the CPU needs upgrading too?
What's the best gpu to pair with that? I See that r9 380 is Okay. Amy other nvidia or amd that pair well?
Why the hell the most Core i5 dropped to "9" instead "10"?
Will this cpu run well for gaming on my system
this cpu soon will be like 3 year as it came out , in my country , in one shop where i bought my pc and after almost 3year , i upgraded psu , case and gpu , this cpu in that shop cost 220$ -- , my cpu three year ago cost 3 times less new in shop , at this time my cpu must cost maximum 40$ , i can get i7 920 for about 50$ , i don't get it why cpu's price don't drop my country be like lowest i5 is 3330 and it cost 220$- , and decent i5 4670k cost 290$ -- . This cpu just 23% better than my AMD but cost 4-6times more… useless spending money for me..
So glad this has been upgraded to 10 :D Going to run it with a 280x in February
Love this baby…
great cpu.. I should have bought this
