Product on Review: Core i5-750 Processor

Street Price: Around £150
As a follow up to my recent ASUS Maximus III Gene review it was decided that a closer look at the additional components involved in that review should be undertaken.
Consequently we will take a look at Intel’s budget CPU from their Core i5 range. Despite being the cheapest Core i5 at the time of the review the 750 is still a fully featured quad.
Intel have ruled the roost for some time. The arrival of their Conroe based Core2 powered chips boosted performance way past anything AMD could offer at the time. Since then their subsequent upgrades have largely kept the range ahead of AMD’s Phenom and even the companies excellent new Phenom II chips.
Here’s a little about the company:
