    Intel Haswell 35W Dual-Core i5-4570T Benchmarks Surface Online

    i5 vs i3 i5 are called i5's instead of i3's even if they have the same core count is a strategy from mobile use. In mobile, i5's are only differentiated mainly by having turbo boost enabled. I guess they are slowly bringing that naming convention over to desktop. In mobile there are 2c/4t...
