Average Bench: 79.8% (63rd of 1110)

Based on 33,264 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000906E9, , 1FABFBFF000906E9, 0FABFBFF000906E9, BFEBFBFF000506E3 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7500 CPU @ 3.40GHz

The Core i5-7500 is not due for release until January 2017 but one of our users has submitted benchmarks for it already. We only have one sample so these benchmark results are obviously preliminary. Comparing the 7500 and 6500 shows that average effective speed is up by an impressive 15%. Although price details are not yet available the i5-7500 is likely to cost around $210 which would be in line with the prices for previous generations of this i5. We will revisit this summary when we have more samples. [Oct '16 CPUPro]

i have this cpu i use it for gaming mostly and tbh that is where it excels. i use the stock cooler and not so good thermal paste (will upgrade to a liquid aio) and even with the most cpu intensive operations it never heats up above 75c it has never throttled in me even after 30 min of stress test using intel extreme tuning utility. i play arma 3 with plenty of mods but manage an average of 45 fps, highs of 90 dips to 30 sometimes. ultra settings 1080p for non cpu intensive games it is a breeze.

While not the worst CPU for value out there, it's not quite the best either.
