Why was I5 released after I7? Why does I3 come out next year? Simply put to fill out a budget line up, and that is what the Q7XXX series was suppose to do. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer LePhuronn a b à CPUs December 18, 2009 8:35:01 AM The i5 is a derivative of the technology used to make the i7. The i3 fills out the budget line-up as you say, but the i3 CPUs are made with the new 32nm process, which is newer technology and as a result come out later. Bear in mind that i3, i5, i7 is a brand name, not build or release order. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources To wait for 7xxx series or just go with 2 x 69xx? What do you think?
