Quoted from Intel Core i5-3470 Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Intel Core i5-3470 reviews & previews
"If you are looking to use the integrated graphics for a mainstream gaming machine, I would still highly recommend you find the lowest cost part with the HD 4000 (Core i7-3770 today) rather than settle for the HD 2500.
Still, the Core i5-3470 would make a solid low cost processor for users looking to build a reasonable cost machine for some mainstream gaming and general enthusiast computing."
"From my experiences with the Intel Core i5 3470 when carrying out these benchmarks, the earlier Intel HD 2500 Linux benchmarks, and various other Intel Linux benchmarks like the recent SNA testing, the i5-3470 Ivy Bridge is a reputable upper mid-range performer. The Core i5 3470 is currently retailing for just under $200 USD while the previous-generation Core i5 2500K is slightly more expensive at around $220 USD. In most -- but not all -- of the CPU benchmarks the i5-3470 does better than the i5-2500K, although the HD 3000 graphics can beat the HD 2500 graphics in some of the OpenGL workloads on Linux. The i5-3470 Ivy Bridge does run a bit warmer than the Core i5 Sandy Bridge, but its overall system power consumption is slightly lower."
"It was an interesting review between the Intel Core i5 3470 cpu and AMD FX 8350 cpu. The AMD FX 8350 has advantages with multi threaded programs but the Intel Core i5 3470 has better single threaded performance. The Intel Core i5 3470 with general software performed upto 17% slower then the AMD FX 8350 which was a poor result for the Intel Core i5 3470. The Intel Core i5 3470 did better with games when it outperformed the AMD FX 8350 by upto 16% better game performance. The Intel Core i5 3470 costs 4% more then the AMD FX 8350 which is something to consider. I will sum things up with the Intel Core i5 3470 is a great cpu which will give you average performance generally but great game performance. The AMD FX 8350 is also a great cpu which will give you great performance."
