Thermal Monitoring Technologies Thermal Monitoring Technologies protect the processor package and the system from thermal failure through several thermal management features.
Please refer to the Launch Date for market availability. Intel® Clear Video Technology Intel® Clear Video Technology is a suite of image decode and processing technologies built into the integrated processor graphics that improve video playback, delivering cleaner, sharper images, more natural, accurate, and vivid colors, and a clear and stable video picture. On paper, the i5-8400 has a base clock of 2. All information provided is subject to change at any time, without notice. Likely to be even cheaper and give more cores with a better multi thread speed. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families.
It achieves quad core mixed speeds , which to date has been a strong favourite for high-end gaming setups. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology builds upon that architecture using design strategies such as Separation between Voltage and Frequency Changes, and Clock Partitioning and Recovery.

Another set of technologies improve the browsing experience and personalize it. Other than that the two seem to be the exact same thing.
The i3 is always running at 3. Please work with your appropriate Intel representative to obtain a formal price quotation. System or device display resolution is dependent on multiple system design factors; actual resolution may be lower on your device. . We calculate which measures real world performance for typical consumers.
These functional cookies are required to use the site and complete purchases. Though you do have to take note, most motherboards only allow turbo boost to happen to a single core at a time. Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. So the i5 may only run one of its cores at 3. Refer to Datasheet for formal definitions of product properties and features. Cheaper 300 series motherboards will be available in 2018 at which time the 8400 will offer even better value for money.
May mean it uses less power when not pushed to its limits. Embedded Options Available Embedded Options Available indicates products that offer extended purchase availability for intelligent systems and embedded solutions. Functionality, performance, and other benefits of this feature may vary depending on system configuration. It enables an environment where applications can run within their own space, protected from all other software on the system. So even if they both ran at the exact same frequency, the one may still perform better than the other.
Along with the release of the unlocked i5-8600K, this is the first time that six-core processors have featured in the i5 line-up. Please contact system vendor for more information on specific products or systems. This compares reasonably well to the i5-8600K which has a base clock of 3. Seems my guess is correct, the i5 is just that slight bit slower, in both multi threaded as well as single threaded tests. So depending on how and on what those tests were done, the difference might be much closer if the i5 is given an equal chance - at least on multi thread tests. Prices may vary for other package types and shipment quantities.
