Hello,
Its only for running games + apps (fraps) + multiple apps beside.
please tell me percentage ex: its 20% more speed than i3

  1. also tell me how much is i5 faster in percentage.
    ex:
    i5 10% more than i3
    i7 30% more than i5


    can you recommend best cpu in i3, i5 and i7 excluding costly ones.
  2. That is an impossible statement.

    Which i7 and which i3? Are we going to compare the 2600k to 2100, 2120, or 2100T? Are we including mobile versions in here? Which programs in particular? Will they make use of the extra cores from the i7 or are they only dual threaded.

    Anyone who gives you a solid % answer is making it up. You need to ask a specific question if you want such a specific answer, but in reality your best bet would be to look at the benchmarks yourself to get a better understanding of how their performances in different tasks compare because it is much too complex to sum up in a single percentage.
  3. +1 you need to know which exact CPUs to compare and also with games most will be limited by the GPU anyway and even those that are not some can make better use of the extra cores on an I5 and hyper threading on the i7 and some cannot so its an impossible question.

    If you want to run the latest games smoothly (like BF3) + multiple apps beside you need i7 @ 3GHz minimum. There is on point in comparing to other CPUs because they can't.
