First benchmarks of Intel's Core i5 "Lynnfield”
The circulated screenshots show a Core i5 "Lynnfield” CPU with 2.13 GHz that has been tested with Super Pi 1M, Cinebench and the Fritz Chess benchmark.
With 19.017 seconds the Core i5 reached a result in Super Pi 1M that is consistent with the IPC performance of current Core i7 processors. In Cinebench R10 the result roughly matches that of a Core 2 Quad Q6600 overclocked to 3.4 GHz. But nevertheless 12,523 points (x-CPU test) are quite high if the CPU clock speed really was 2.13 GHz. A Core i7 9xx CPU needs about 2.6 GHz for such a result.
According to CPU-Z 1.49 the "Lynnfield” quad-core CPU has been run at 2.13 GHz with a multiplier of 16x and has 256 KiByte L2 cache per core while the L3 cache is 8 MiByte big. Additionally the test system consisted of an unknown motherboard, 6GiByte DDR3-1066 RAM with latencies of 7-7-7-20 and the operating system was the 64 bit version of Windows Vista.
Contrary to the current Core i7 CPUs the Lynnfield models won't support triple channel mode and QPI. But instead they are supposed to be equipped with DMI (Direct Media Interface) and dual channel. Furthermore they are said to be incompatible to current socket 1366 motherboards.
