I wanted to know about the difference in these processors as now a days i3, i5 and i7 processors are so much popular and before this there was dual core, core2duo and quad core processors. I don't know what the basic difference in Quad core and i3 Processor? If both use same cores?

Difference between Quad Core and i3 Technology?

Before giving the basic difference of the two, let’s first define some basic terms connected to it, like processor, core and multi- core processor. A processor commonly known as CPU is actually the brain of your computer unit. It is responsible for carrying out instructions as commanded by your operating systems also known as windows.  Every standard processor contains a single core that can just course one instruction at a time.  

A multi-core processor is made up of two or more independent cores designed to process distinct instructions. Among these are dual-core processors, which hold two cores, quad-core processors which hold four cores and hexa-core processors which hold six cores. Now, let’s talk about i3 and quad core. The “I#”series are all quad cores by default in which some have cores which are considered hyper threads.

The basic differences are based on the following factors: in terms of socket features, in terms of memory controller, in terms of better I/O interconnects, and in terms of better fabrication and chip sets. Specifically, an i3 also considered as the starter model of the second generation of Intel series processors has 2 physical cores and 2 cores hyper threaded yet it does not contain turbo boost.

Thank you Mr. Dennis.

Now at this at time i was googling for the differences b/w the i3, i5 and i7 processors.

Because i am planning to buy a pc with all the new latestet hardwares… It really confused me to select which processor to buy.. NOw i came to a solution for the confusion.

Again many thanks to Dennis and to techyv.com experts….

Great site for everything….
