  1. I haven't had much experience with the new i5 and i7, but I believe:

    i7 has 7 cores, i5 has 5 cores, and quad (meaning 4) has 4 cores.

    :)
  2. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    i7 = 4 cores
    i5= cors
  3. i5 is only dual core I think whereas i7 is Quad Core, but it goes much more beyond the amount of cores you have for example, speed, chip-types and so on. :)
  4. Yea, well i was way off. :whistle:

    only the i7-970 has 6 cores, and the rest have 4 cores.

    some of the i5's are 4 cores, and some 2.

    Its just more advanced tech. put into each chip...oh well.


    And hey! Someday there will be an intel CPU with 7 cores :ouch:

    :o
    i7 980X = 6 cores
    i7 is = Quad 4 cores
    i5 upto model 570 = dual core that means 2 cores and from i5 570 all r Quad core that means 4 cores
    i3= dual core 2 cores....

    i 5 are dual cores and starting from model i5 750 they r all Quad cores......and all i7 except i7 980x are quad cores..... i7 980 is a 6 core processor.....

    i7 970 and also, i7 980x has 6 cores.....

  8. i7 970/80X = 6-core/HT/LGA1366/Turbo
    i7 920/30/40/50/60/65/75 = 4-core/HT/1366/Turbo
    i7 8X0 = 4-core/HT/LRA1156/Turbo
    i5 7X0 = 4-core/LGA1156/Turbo
    i5 6XX = 2-core/IGP/HT/LGA1156/Turbo
    i3 5XX = 2-core/IGP/HT/LGA1156
    Pentium GXXXX = 2-core/IGP/LGA1156
