    Hey

    Would you guys be so nice to sum up what are the diffrences in the intel core cpu's ?
    I mean I used to be really into hardware untill like 5 years ago and still I try to be a tiny bit in touch of whats going on and I had no trouble picking hardware 3 years ago but now I just got lost in these core cpus. For now I get that 1 is older socket and the other a new one. Now the i5 are supposed to be more price attractive but they dont have the QPI BUS thing and instead they have all the GFX controlling done inside CPU right ? But there is some version of i5 that doesnt have the gfx processor in it ? Also some can lower their clock speed diffrently than others and somewhere I saw a statement that i5 dont have multithreating.
    If they add something new to all this im really gonna go WTF and buy myself an AMD.
