Get Amazing Entertainment and Boost Your Productivity With a Core i7 PC

Having a computer that can have the power and responsiveness to help in your productivity and give you an amazing entertainment system is better because it can be used for multitasking, high-end gaming, and other multimedia tasks. With an Intel Core i7 PC that is available on eBay, you never have to complain that a software functions too slow since its processor can handle demanding programs and games with high frame rates. 

What's the difference between Core i3, i5, and i7 computers? 

Even though all these are part of the Intel family line of products, they differ in speed and performance. The following are some features that can be used as comparison:  

  • Hyper-threading- Intel has a technology called Hyper-threading. This enables a single core to serve multiple threads to have parallel computation and faster processes. For instance, a Core i3 which has two cores serves up to two threads per core. In other words, a total of four threads can run simultaneously. Core i5 has a max of six cores but can only run one thread per core, while Core i7 has now a max of eight cores. Out of all of them, this is what sets Core i7 apart, having multiple threads capable of running processes faster.
  • Number of cores- These different lines of products have a different number of cores serving as its processors. Generally, the higher number of cores, the more processes can work simultaneously.
  • Cache size- If the computer finds that it keeps on using same programs or tasks, it stores that data in its cache. With a larger cache, more data from frequent tasks can be accessed quickly. This makes users have less waiting time. As Intel continues to upgrade, they generally add more size for their processors' cache which makes i7 outperform i5, which outperforms i3.
  • Turbo Boost- The Turbo Boost is an Intel technology which allows a processor to increase dynamically its clock speed if a need arises. The trigger is dependent on mostly the number of active cores doing a process, the estimated power and current consumption, and the temperature the processor is having. It varies in each and every processor and doesn't always mean that Intel Core i7 has greater boosts than a core i5.
