One of the conditions of your computer processor speed is good, of course in the games still need to take into account the performance of the graphics card, but not related to the graphics card is not critical and plays a major role which processor is used for work.
Processors from Intel have improved, which would reduce energy consumption and increase performance, is improved semiconductor technology is now preparing for the release of processors on 10nm technology.
Available in 4 types of processors
- processors for desktop computers.
- processors for mobile devices, tablets, laptops.
- processors for servers
- Embedded processors
Features are similar to processors of different types, are slightly different processors for servers, they are subject to higher requirements in terms of reliability and performance, such as their internal cache more than 10mV and the price is higher.
Table of evolution of processor cores from Intel
In general, the characteristics of similar processors for different types of devices.
The main differences in the Core i3 processors, i5, i7 1 to 7 generations.
- Core i3 - Cheapest processors, these processors have 2 physical cores, to increase the speed used INTEL® HYPER THREADING TECHNOLOGY technology. This technology creates a 2 physical cores and 2 more virtual operating system determines that the processor has 4 cores. Cache Memory 3-4MB.
- Core i5 - mid-level processors, usually in these processors 4 physical cores, but some models have only 2 physical cores + 2 virtual. Cache memory is generally 6MB but some models can have 4 or 8MB. Higher performance is achieved by the presence of 4 physical cores and increased volume of cache memory.
- Core i7 - processors have 4 to 8 physical cores with mandatory use INTEL® HYPER THREADING TECHNOLOGY technology. The cache memory from 8MB to 20MB in the latest models of processors. Performance increased virtual cores and a large volume of cache memory. Processors for mobile devices can have 2 physical cores.
generation processors Intel i3, i5, i7As of the beginning of 2017 there are 7 generations of processors
- 1 generation - made on 45nm technology in 2010 and 32nm technology, the development of 2008-1010 years, without integrated graphics.
- 2 generation - 32nm technology, intel graphics 2000, 3000, release 2011.
- 3 generation - 32-22nm technology, the Intel 4000 graphics, release of 2011-2012.
- 4 generation - 22nm technology, Intel 4600-5200 release schedule in 2013 year.
- 5 generation - technology 14nm and 22nm, Intel 6200 graphics Release 2014-2015.
- 6 generation - technology 14nm, Intel 530-580 graphics Release 2015-2016.
- 7 generation - 14nm technology, Intel 610-620 graphics Release 2016-2017.
