If you ever heard of Intel Core i3,i5,i7 & i9 and thinking that what is the actual difference between these?
you came to the right place, now see in a nutshell ;
For your knowledge, there are many generations of Intel processors arrived, there may be a change in different editions of a generation with its i3,i5,i7&i9 editions and the information given below is defined as a random basis for a better overview. So let’s get started
Launched in early 2010, this Intel i3 processor has cores, “Cores” meant to say how many threads supported in a process which can be mapped in GHz speed (clock speed).
Intel then after launched 8 different versions i.e. (from 1st generation to 7th generation consecutively). Starting times, these were not at that effective in terms of speed and reliability. There was provided a limited number of GPUs ( Graphics Processing Units ) and also all the versions of i3 can support DDR3 ram version. If you take an example of an i3 processor :the first i3 processor by Intel :named “Core i3-530” ,with a price tag of $113 ,there are 2 cores, a GPU frequency of 733 MHz, TDP *thermal design power* of 73 watts, and also provides a poor performance because TURBO boost option is missing. As we move another newer version we will found a reduced TDP, increased GPU limit, improved clocking power at a greater speed and also with a higher price tag.
A fair version of Intel i5 processor launched in late 2012, named Core i5-3427U, which is known for its better reliabilities, better optimizations, and a better hardware support compared to its predecessor. Talking of specifications, It can support an HD range (can cover up to 1500 MHz frequency )of graphics which is higher from normal 733-999 Mhz, as it comes in the model “HD graphics 4000”, priced at 225 $. It can also support up to 2 cores but then after, In 6 th gen skylake edition of i5, there are 4 cores called QUAD core.There are lesser TDP and power consumption which helps in battery efficiency. There is 2 blocks of 256 MiB L2 cache and 3 MiB of L3 cache. So surely there is non-doubt, it is a better choice for i3 editions.
These are one of the advanced processors till now which is in use as real-time. From corporates to personal use, this edition is much smart than others. 3rd gen i7 processors discovered in mid-2013. There are 4 cores at this beginning stage and go up to 6 core (Hexa Core) at later generations. The clock frequency starts from 3.5 GHz which turns the processes execution very faster. The base GPU supports UHD: Ultra HD which can turns entertainment at its best with screen viewing, gaming, and other things. The L2 cache has a base block of 4 with each 256 MiB block and an L3 cache has an 8 MiB block.The battery options are well optimised ( TDP terms )and hence any battery able to run 6-7 hours minimum with some hardware support in one charge cycle. The later stages of 7 th /8 th gen. skylake processors offers TURBO boost specialization with this i5 processor.
This is the latest from Intel came in mid-2017, Generally, this architecture used for developing purposes and has a special feature of a Mega number of threads like 20x, 21x,25x threads, and that is why here we are adding an image with an X-series branding.
Talking about its specifications, it is the best-optimized architecture in the world. It has a whopping 4.5 GHz of turbo boost which can handle up to 5x times more processes than i5 and 3x more processes than i7. It has 10-20 blocks of an L2 cache of 256 MiB each and L3 cache varies from 10-30 MiB which can rewind up to 3-4 x more than i7. With, DDR4 version of Ram support, it costs up to 2000 $ which is not a good option for a personal use.
Conclusion – As the generations changes, the processors made within the point of view of building the avg. best. superior micro architectures according to needs. An earlier build processor edition may work great compared to later on forthcoming build depending on hardware support or in any external conditions.
