Difference Between Core i5 and Core i7

Intel Processor Comparison – Part 11 of 16

Am I getting redundant here? Not really. Intel Core i5 is a quad core processor that can run four processes at a time, while each process can run only one thread. While Intel Core i7 can run four processes and eight threads at the same time on its four cores. So you can say that Core i5 has uni-threaded four cores, while Core i7 is a quad core processor with each core running hyper threading technology.

    I am new to this and have to present this project which falls into my dept. I am going to upgrade 350 users from Windows XP to Windows7 (and their applications and files/folders etc) There is a lot of information out there which sometimes can be confusing for a person like myself with lack of deployment experience. If someone out there can give me steps by steps what excatly I need to perform this task I would be very thankful and greatful to the human being. Please send me steps to download tools and steps to deploy. Thanks

    I’m running a Abit AN8-Sli Mobo with AMD 64X2 processor and 4 Gig ram. I recently upgraded from XP pro, SP3 to 7 Ultimate (clean install on new hard drive). When attempting to record with line-in, I find that Realtek AC-97 is not seeing any of the sound card jacks. The sound card I’ve been using is the daughter card supplied with the Fatal1ty Mobo. I’ve not had any problems using this mobo and card with XP for three years, now. I updated the drivers from the realtec site to the newest (R248) driver available, as of yesterday. No change. From what I’m reading on-line, this seems to be a major problem with Win7. Are there any good solutions?
