Intel CPUs have been number one in the CPU world since the beginning. Their latest offering is the Intel Core range of CPUs, which is offered in i3, i5 and i7 models, aimed at different levels of performance. Intel Core i3 is an entry level offering, suitable for every day office tasks. Intel Core i5 offers more power for mid range systems, and the powerful Hyper-Threaded Core i7 is ideal for high power multi tasking applications like video editing or gaming.
The Intel Core i5 range of processors feature quad cores - essentially 4 CPUs on the same chip - and also feature Intel’s Turbo Boost facility. Turbo Boost dynamically adjusts the clock speed of the CPU, increasing it only when maximum power is needed. This has the effect of minimising both the cooling and power requirements of the CPU, giving you a cleaner, greener CPU that packs a punch, but doesn’t waste resources unnecessarily. Core i5 CPUs have 6mb of L3 cache, 50% more than the i3, enabling faster throughput and performance. Core i5 CPUs also have on-chip integrated graphics which is another useful power saving feature.
