Intel Core i7-875K and i5-655K - The Overclocking Club

With its slower clock speed, the Core i5-750 was left behind the other Intel processors since its primary positioning is an affordable true quad-core processor and doesn't feature HyperThreading. The Core i7-875K was as expected, roughly equal to that of the Core i7-870 in this benchmark. This was seen in all the scores below, whether it was a 2-threaded or 4-threaded scenario. Of course, the native quad-core processors performed much better in the 4-threaded workload, a gap that even HyperThreading cannot bridge. Meanwhile, the Core i5-661 was only a tad faster than the 655K, thanks to its slight frequency advantage.
