The majority of the desktop and mobile Core 2 processor variants are Core 2 Duo with two processor cores on a single Merom , Conroe , Allendale, Penryn or Wolfdale chip. The Core 2 Solo introduced in September 2007, is the successor to the Core Solo and is available only as an ultra-low-power mobile processor with 5.5 Watt thermal design power.

INTEL CORE i7
The Core i7 brand remains the high-end for Intel's desktop and mobile
processors, featuring the Sandy Bridge models with the largest amount of L3
cache and the highest clock frequency.
COMPARISON BETWEEN i3i5 and i7
Uses 4 threads
• This processor consists of 2-4 cores
• Contains A 3-4 MB Cache
it has a higher clock speed than the Core i3
• This is also a heat and energy efficient processor
• The cache of the Core i5 is bigger than the Core i3, it’s
at 3-8 MB
The cache on this one is 4-8 MB
• This processor comes with 8 threads
• It also utilizes hyper-threading technology as well as
turbo boost technology
In a test performed on a leaked hardware, the core i7 outperformed
the currently fastest core2 extreme processor.
It has got the advantages of high performance, highly over lockable,
quite cooling and power efficient.
Some of the disadvantages include the requirement of newer
motherboards, sensitive to higher voltage.
The technology keeps on improving as the need for faster and high
end applications increases. The i9 core version is about to be
