Intel® Core™ processors explained!

“For PC purchasing, think in terms of good-better-best with Celeron being good, Pentium better, and the Intel Core family representing the best we have to offer,” said Jeff Calder (Application Engineer at Intel).

Typically, the Core i3 series has only dual-core processors, while the Core i5 and Core i7 series have both dual-core and quad-core processors.

When we purchase a new computer, we look at technical specifications sheet or simply not always paying needed attention to Intel Core processor capability.  Information that often is not displayed is about processors. Do you know we often purchase a computer with built in mobile processor? Why it is important? Well, is all about computer performance.

Let’s compare Intel® Core™ i3-8109U Processor with Intel® Core™ i3-8100 Processor:
