Differentiating i3, i5, and i7


Many people out there don’t know about the difference between Intel’s new series of processors. The i3, i5, and i7. These are just great processors, made for everyone on the planet, satisfying everyone’s needs, making you smileJ.
Everyone don’t need an i7 (The KING), and only KINGs can afford to one of them. These processors use minimum number of cores to perform well. They use Hyper Threading which enables these processors to work as two cores. Speaking of which, I’ll have to explain a lot, like about threads, thread life cycle etc.
Well now I’ll give a good basic clear explanation and provide links to more true information. How about that? J

Intel Core i3

The Intel Core i3 is the first guy, an entry level processor in the great “i” series. In simple words this guy is an intelligent dual core processor. The i3 uses 2 cores with Hyper threading technology yielding a quad core like processing.

Open “Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools”, look for a “Computer Management” icon, open it, and check the device manager. You will find 4 processors with same clock speed under the processors (collapse it).

This is recommended almost all applications, including programming, multimedia processing, image processing etc.

Intel Core i7

This is the best of all. As mentioned above, the KING of all. This processor is available in 4 Cores and 6 Cores (Extreme). The i7s have higher clock speeds and large cache memory. This is the best processor ever, the best ever for gamers!
