Major Intel Processor Series December 2017:- How to choose a good processor? i3, i5, i7, Xeon, Celeron, Pentium, Atom. In this article, we will try to understand about different processor used in the laptops and desktops.
Laptop processors are generally power efficient and have low TDP which made them good for student’s and for office purpose. If you want a high-end laptop especially for gaming video editing or software designing then you should know that which processor is good for these tasks.
There is the difference between laptop and desktop processors as desktop processors are much more powerful than a regular laptop processor. The desktop processor has higher TDP than a laptop which makes them more power consumer and more power consuming made them more powerful.
Most laptop’ today have AMD or Intel’s processor but which is best? Actually among both the processor Intel has the monopoly in the market as Intel’s processors are far more powerful than AMD. But AMD is also catching up the market as with the release of Ryzan CPU.
We see lot’s and lot’s of the processor from Intel these days mainly the smart series- i3 /i5/ i7. When we see different model it’s quite confusing such as i5 6200, i5 7200 we can’t differentiate between these as all look similar and identical. But one thing to know that behind a processor has actually indicated generation of the processor, SKU numeric digit, and product line.
Which processor is to choose?
Major Intel Processor Series December 2017 are most selling and widely used in most of the laptops and desktops.
Major Intel Processor Series December 2017 i3, i5, i7, Xeon, Celeron, Pentium, Atom
i3 / i5 / i7:-
These processors are best in terms of everything. They give better performance at least drawbacks as they come in all categories such as dual core quad core and especially with hyper-threading and turbo boost.
i3 is the slowest & cheapest and can be seen on the low-end laptop.
i5 is middle-class and budget-friendly processor
i7 is the fastest & costly among all the processors.
Xeon processors are the very high end and used for animation or for research purposes. These processors have very low battery backup because of higher TDP. But performance wise they are the best and can perform very heavy task easily.
Celeron / Pentium:-
This category of processors is found in very cheap laptop and have low performance. These processors are good for surfing the internet, making presentation etc.
Atom processors are cheapest processors made by Intel with only up to 2.5 TDP which give superb battery life. These processors are best for surfing the internet, watching videos etc.
Major Intel Processor Series December 2017:- A CPU or processor is a very important part of a computer (i3, i5, i7, Xeon, Celeron, Pentium, Atom) but the only CPU is not responsible for good performance. With a good CPU, you should have an SSD or a faster hard drive, higher RAM, and a good graphic card. These all things boost the speed of PC and make them faster.
