Intel Core i5-460M Vs Core i5-560M

A relatively large number of the processor models, especially during the recent two years, keeps buyers and users guessing. Starredreviews.com has attempted to present relatively large number of processor comparison articles.

The core i5-560M is a better processor than the core i5-460. Here is the qualitative analysis.

– The core i5-560M is clocked higher at 2.66 GHz as compared to 2.53 GHz of Core i5-460M
– The maximum turbo frequency of the core i5-560M is higher at 3.2 GHz, as compared to 2.8 GHz of Core i5-460M.
– The above two are the mosjor differences that will lead to better performance of core i5-560M. The core i5-560M, however provides following additional features not available in core i5-460M

A. Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)
B. Intel Trusted Execution Technology
C. AES instructions

On the performance level, we present a brief comparison of the benchmarking results comparing the two processors.

Benchmark Intel Core i5-460M Core i5-560M
Super Pi 2M (Lower is better) 37 seconds 35 seconds
Windows 7 Experience Index – CPU 6.9 6.9
Pass Mark Score 2641 2584
3D Mark 06 CPU Score 2900 3100

The Passmark score gives slightly unexpected result. In general we expect core i5-560M to be slightly faster than the core i5-460M. The results can be found at
