Intel Core i5 Processors - What You Need to Know

12th-Gen Intel Core marked Intel's transition to a hybrid CPU architecture comprised of a combination of big 'Performance-cores' (P-cores) and little 'Efficient-cores' (E-cores). As their names imply, P-cores boast high performance with high frequencies, while E-cores handle background processes with great efficiency.

Before this change, Intel Core i5 processors were based off a more conventional, monolithic CPU architecture, offering only what we now know as Performances-cores. 6-core/12-thread Intel Core i5 processors were the norm - now there's 14-core/20-thread Intel Core i5s, like the Intel Core 14600K.

At first glance, this may seem like a massive leap in core count. Why would you ever need more cores than this, or why would you ever consider a 6-core/12-thread AMD Ryzen 5 processor? Well, out of an Intel Core i5 14600K's 14 cores, only 6 of them are your more conventional Performance-cores, while the rest are Efficient-cores. So, it's not as big of a difference as it may appear.

When you break it down, modern Intel Core i5 processors aren't too dissimilar to i5s of old or AMD Ryzen 5 processors, except with a bunch of Efficient-cores thrown in for good measure.

These E-cores can, in theory, come in handy during certain workloads. Most applications and games don't take advantages of them, however. It's very much still the P-cores which matter most; E-cores shouldn't influence your purchasing decision too much. If you want more P-cores, you'll have to step up to an Intel Core i7 or even an Intel Core i9 processor.

Why Should I Buy an Intel Core i5 Processor?

Out of the whole Intel Core range, Intel Core i5 processors usually offer the best 'bang for your buck'. Intel Core i3 processors may come in the cheapest, and while they're perfectly serviceable for day-to-day tasks (like web browsing and video streaming), they'll start to struggle in more demanding workloads.

Many of today's blockbuster triple-A games, for instance, have heavy CPU requirements, which 4-core/8-thread Intel Core i3 processors often can't meet. Modern Intel Core i5 processors, on the other hand, manage to hit those high frame rates when paired with a dedicated graphics card from either NVIDIA, AMD, or Intel themselves.

An Intel Core i5 processor will make quick work of whatever's thrown at it. You'd be surprised by just how capable even the more budget-oriented Intel Core i5 processors are for gaming.

That being said, if you're thinking of dabbling in the world of live-streaming and content creation, you may want to consider an Intel Core i7 processor. The extra couple of P-cores afforded by an Intel Core i7 processor help ensure everything runs smoothly when gaming and streaming simultaneously.
