    The I3 is a dual core with hyper threading so it looks like a quad to the operating system. I5s are both depending on which model you get the I5 6XX are dual cores with HT and then the I5 750,760 are true quad cores. I7's are quad cores with HT so actually looks like an 8 core cpu to the operating system.
  2. i3 5xx = 2 cores 4 threads (1156)
    i5 6xx = 2 cores 4 threads Turbo
    i5 7xx = 4 cores 4 threads
    i7 8xx = 4 cores 8 threads Turbo
    i7 9xx = 4 cores 8 threads (1366)
    i7 9xx = 6 cores 12 threads
