DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CPUs
First of all, we would like to clarity the differences between i3, i5 and i7.
A comparison with the automotive can be usefull to introduce these differences; we know that car models are available with different engines, from the quietest to the most sporty. We can say that i7 is the top model in this range, i3 and i5 are the “quiet versions”.
CPUs are characterized by certain fundamental aspects:
- No. of cores (whether physical or logical)
- turbo boost technology
See below how these four factors combine in different CPU models.
