Re: Which is better core i5 or i3 in laptop

The first i5 processor was launches on 8 September,2009. Nehalem was the code name for intel i5 processor. Intel has optimized inter turbo boost technology which allows i5 to run faster than the base operating frequency. But if it is operating below power,current and temperature. This core will give you greater noticeable speed but will depend on what applications you are using.but there is an annoying position when we edit multiple files the i5 seems to be very slow and irritating. The speed it will yield is 2.66 GHz and has 8 MB cache size.

Re: Which is better core i5 or i3 in laptop

Core i3 is the low end performance processors from intel use these days in laptop after the withdrawal of Core2 processor. The first Core i3 processors were launched on January 7, 2010. The Core i3 processors are based on Arrandale which is the mobile version of the Clarkdale desktop processor. And clarkdale is the code name for intel processors.they come in various processor numbers and types. Intel? Core? i3-2350M Processor is of 3M cache and 2.30 GHz speed. It has max memory size of 16 GB and max memory bandwidth of 21.3 GB/s. it is not as fast as i5 but if u want to spend less money and get good core processor u should opt for 13 processor. Give me your feedback if u find it good.

You should call intel Customer service no.they will give you accurate and adequate information of what you exactly need and will refrain you from this problem. Intel helpline no for Bsnl customers ? 1 901 425 2105 and for other customers ? +91-802 854 2105
