The Intel Core i5-4460 is a slightly upgraded version of Intel's 2013 Haswell i5-4440. Comparing the i5-4460 and i5-4440 shows that the only change is an increase in both base and turbo frequencies from 3.4 to 3.5 GHz. In terms of effective speed the 4460 is exactly on a par with the average of the top ten user rated CPUs, not a bad result for an i5. Thanks to its four cores the 4460 is can easily deal with the vast majority of desktop computing (email, web browsing, word processing etc.). In fact this model is probably overpowered for the majority of users. Most users wont require the multi-core capabilities that the 4460 offers and will do better to choose a lower powered and cheaper CPU. [Jun '14 CPUPro]
