Intel’s Core i5 and i7 “Lynnfield” Processors and P55 Platform Reviewed

Admin Topics 131

The Core i5 Lynnfield is officially here! Despite many leaks and e-tailer mistakes, the platform made it from out of the cloud of an NDA (non disclosure agreement) beaten up but with still much left to tell. Today we finally get to do that! Since it was announced in development, we predicted that Lynnfield would be far more popular than its Bloomfield brother. It was not because it was superbly faster (in some cases), but because it looked like an extremely capable processor that didn’t cost a somewhat outrageous premium for performance.
