Every body is looking for better performing processors so as to enable complex applications to run on their Pc’s. The processor speeds are increasing day-by-day and the companies are Introducing high performance processors by making use of high end technologies. In my view Intel is the best choice for processors, Mother boards. They are introducing new technologies into their processors year by year and is known as the world’s best processor manufacturing company.
Intel have now introduced the latest Desktop Processor, Intel Core I7. It is the most advanced Desktop Processor and is the first to come from the family of Nehalem processor designs. Many new features are introduced with this processor like Turbo Boost technology. This advanced Processor from Intel speeds top end games,video editing and some other complex activities upto 40% that too with out consuming more power. It is the first processor ever to get 117 points for the SPECint_base_rate2006* benchmark test – This test is used to measure the performance of the processor. No other processor ever reached the 100 benchmark.
Coming to the technical details, Intel Core I7 processor uses Turbo Boost Technology which accelerates the performance to match the computer work loads and user needs. This processor is made up of the latest transistors called Power gate transistors using advanced 45 nm technology.
Power Saving Techniques
- Intel Core I7 processor consists of 4 cores.To boost performance Turbo Boost technology in Core I7 processor automatically adjusts the clock speed of one or more cores of the processor for single and multi-threaded applications and sees that not much power is consumed.
- Another feature is included in this processor which is formerly included in the Intel-based Notebooks. This allows the Desktop’s to go into sleepy states.
Intel Core I7 processors comes in three varients
