Intel Core i5 4670 "Haswell" Linux Benchmarks

The Core i5 4670 is a mid-range Intel "Haswell" processor that's quad-core, clocked at 3.4GHz, and can top out at 3.8GHz all for a price of just over $200 USD. If you happen to be after a mid-range CPU with decent Linux open-source graphics support, check out our new comparative benchmarks of the Intel Core i5 4670 on Ubuntu Linux.

In preparation for an upcoming processor launch to be used as another comparison point, and in needing to pick up more CPUs anyhow for the Phoromatic and OpenBenchmarking.org test farm that will soon be public and part of the Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 effort, I bought an Intel Core i5 4670 "Haswell" processor over the weekend.

The Core i5 4670 should serve as a nice mid-range processor and comes with Intel HD Graphics 4600, which we already know from months of testing other Intel Haswell CPUs on Linux that the performance and feature-set is quite good. Plus, Intel HD Graphics are backed solely by an open-source Intel graphics driver. Besides having Intel HD Graphics 4600, the Core i5 4670 is specced out at running a 3.4GHz base frequency, 3.8GHz Turbo frequency, four physical cores (no Hyper Threading), and 6MB of Cache. The TDP on the i5-4670 is 84 Watts.

The Core i5 4670 has the other usual Haswell features like being manufactured on a 22nm process, DDR3-1600MHz support up to 32GB, SSE 4.2, AVX 2.0, etc. The Core i5 4670 also has vPro, VT-x, VT-d, and VT-x with EPT support. While the Core i5 4670K is popular with overclockers for being unlocked, the i5-4670 is nice for being more virtualization friendly with VT-d for directed I/O and Intel vPro support.
