    3rd Gen Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 Processor with Intel HD Graphics 4000
    4GB RAM—Dual Channel Memory

    I can't find what number i5 it is, but I would think this to be very quick.

    here the info. something I want to add, it's not a 4 cores , it's a dual core with 4 tread ( like a i3) , This is another thing that can mislead someone. Intel should not class those CPU as i5, but in the other hand it help the Microsoft marketing.

    Where did you get the Surface CPU specs to say that it's the i5-3317U Processor? I don't think this is 3rd gen.

    I have some source at Intel.

    anything to argue..... you don't know that much CPU ? . Second generation Sandy Bridge was 32 nm and this CPU was release last December and it's a 22 nm ( Ivy )

    Launch Date Q2'12

    Lithography 22 nm


    and what they said over the red line

    Coffee is absolutely horrid, no matter where from, how brewed, etc.

    We have conflicting tastes.

    I also prefer green tea with honey, maybe some squeezed lemon juice if I don't feel too lazy.

    An i5 processor regardless of being mobile or desktop implies good computing performance. It depends on the specific series, but in general they're rather decent.

    but you don't answer my question, do you actually try it ? you seem to be sure it will perform well, how you can be if you have not try it. Faith ?. You don't have idea of what CPU it was before I tell you. this i5 perform the same as some 5 years old CPU dual core.
