Intel CPUs have become the industry standard in the personal computer world. Their flagship desktop PC offering is the Intel Core range of CPUs, and comes in i3, i5 and i7 flavours. The entry level Intel Core i3 powers everyday business systems, the Intel Core i5 is designed for mid range systems, and the powerful Hyper-Threaded Core i7 is intended for high powered multi tasking applications - video editing and gaming are good examples.
The top of the range Intel Core i7 range of processors feature quad cores, Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading. 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. Hyper-Threading makes each physical core appear as two which results in a much increased processing capacity. Core i7 CPUs have 8mb of L3 cache, 50% more than the i5, enabling faster throughput and performance. Core i7 CPUs also have on-chip integrated graphics which is another useful power saving feature.
