Intel – Processor Flashback

Processor Comparison – Part 3 of 16

Most of us have been using those good old single core processors. Then Intel came up with their dual core technology. Dual core means, you have physically two processors that are soldered together into one microprocessor. They work independently and you actually have two processors working in your computer.

Then came a wave of processors including Cor 2 Quad, Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 that people started losing clue of, how exactly these processors are better than the typical Core 2 duo. There are technical architectural level changes that we may not be able to discuss, and those who are interested in a detailed comparison, can go through the table at the bottom of this post. But we will discuss the main changes in this post.
