I'm not sure that 2500k is faster. I own one of each, and my 3570k is slightly faster. But different memory and OS.

The speed at the higher FFT levels (where first time tests are now) depends on the memory.

Maybe 3570k is recommended because it feels better to have a newer model, or because it is specified to run a few watts cooler.
