    Price-wise, at $294 (within a batch of a thousand) it costs ten dollars more than the CPU it replaces at the top of the Core i5 pile - the 3.46 GHz 670. Just to remind you, there is a higher numbered Core i5 - the 750 - but this is an anomalous 45nm, 4-core, 4-thread 2.66 GHz part costing $196.
    Intel's model numbering is as clear as mud!

    i3 means 2 cores, 4 threads

    i5 means 4 threads, can be 4 cores, 4 threads, or 2 cores, 4 threads.

    i7 means 8 threads and above
