Some Popular intel core’s Processor
intel core i3 processor introduced in 2010. it based dual-core technology helps to provide 4-way multitasking capability, runs at settled speed ideal for regular tasks.
Intel i5 usually quad-core processors and it is the next level of previous one. Rest of the features are as Core i3 also integrated graphics but it comes with Intel, Turbo Boost Technology gives extra speed when you need it.
Intel Core i7 is the most demanding processor comes with quad-core technology with cache and faster clock speeds.
Quad-core processors feature binds with 8-way threading, four cores which helps to run faster, and more L3 cache for all cores.
its comes with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 to accelerate processing speed, it also comes with Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, Integrated Memory Controller ideal for high-end work, and gaming purpose.
