Intel is the enormous processor producing company. The extravagant names of Intel processors might puzzle you like Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7. It becomes difficult for the consumers to select a right processor. Have you ever thought the difference between Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors? In this article, we will talk about the major differences between Intel processors.
In the past CPU was operated by clock speed. At that time, clock speed produced the idea of working speed of the CPU. The clock speed does not determine the effectiveness of the CPU. A CPU with a 3.0 GHz operates faster compared to a CPU with 2.5 GHz. In the case of performance, the CPU with 2.5 GHz will go one better than the first one. Intel launched its CPU with various titles. The first processor introduced by Intel was ‘AMD’, but it failed to satisfy the demands. Intel named ‘Core’ to exit from the clock speed race.
The performance of Core i7s is superior to Core i5s, and Core i5s is superior to Core i3s. Core i3 chips are available for cheap PCs and low-end laptops. This processor is generally used for surfing and watching videos. Core i3s are low-grade processors and support small Cache size.Core i3 have only two cores.
The ordinary and average cost PC’s and laptops have Core i5. This type of processor can be used by average customers and effortless gamers. Core i5 have four cores.
The Core i7 is mostly used for high-end and costly laptop and PCs. This can be used by professional video editors, gamers, etc. Core i7 also have four cores. The number of core indicates the higher performance of PCs and laptops.
If your PC has a small number of cores, that doesn’t mean it will not work. You can do one work at a time, but slowly. The PC with numerous cores will allow you to do as many works at a time and with great speed. If you have opened various tabs then cores cannot do anything. It means that the speed of your PC can be decreased. The speed effect of cores can be utilized when you are playing modern games.
The Core i3s have Hyper-Threading feature. Hyper-Threading feature is not available in all Core i5s. Core i5s may have Turbo boost feature loaded. The Core i7 is the most demanded processor. It has 2 to 8 cores with Hyper-Threading, Turbo boosting and overclocking features.
