I've been trying to find out what the stock/turbo frequencies were of various different Core i5 mobile processors. I finally stumbled upon a Wiki page but I can't figure out how to calculate the turbo frequency with the given information.

Here's the Wiki link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...2Arrandale.22_.28standard_voltage.3B_32_nm.29

The reason for wanting to know the frequencies is to figure out whether or not the 520M is worth buying over the 430M, which at stock frequencies only differ by .14GHz.

Edit: Scrap that, found everything on notebookcheck.com/net, I forgot. :D

This thread can die.

i just picked up a nice DELL laptop with a 430 and it's been great with a 17" screen for $700 although there is a 15" about $150 cheaper.
