Core i5 661 manages to produce some impressive numbers, beating the older Q9550 quad processor in almost every benchmark. No doubt that high clocks help a lot, but nevertheless you should keep in mind we're talking about a Dual Core processor, and for that matter the Core i5 661 really shines in games. But considering it has the same price as the Core i5 750 model, 661 kind of performs excellent and fails at the same time.
