Understanding The Difference between Intel Core i3, i5, i7 and i9 Processors

PC processors are getting crazier day by day with increasingly capable technology and capabilities. perhaps what we most recognize from the processor brand is only two, namely the manufacturer from Intel and AMD. The two brands are the most widely used. 

In this article, let's forget the AMD brand, because we will focus on the Intel brand, especially their products, namely the Intel Core Core i3, i5, i7 and i9 which we will discuss the differences.

Apart from the name, the difference that lies in the Intel Core i3, i5, i7 and i9 processors is performance. Obviously, the higher the name used, the more extraordinary the performance will be. 

But, are you aware that Intel released Core i7 products to the market first rather than the products under them (Core i3, and Core i5). Now that's a clue.

Basically, Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 are the same product, namely Core i7. That's why Intel released Core i7 to the market first. Let's go into more detail about this. Though Core i9 was released later and more improved, the concept is just the same what was only introduced was the new generations equipped with more speed. 

Making a chip design is quite difficult and expensive. It is easier to make 4 configurations that are applied into 1 chip design, than to design 1 chip itself. That's why Intel produces Core i3, i5, i7 and i9 with the same design and are both made in a silicon factory called Fab. Microchip production is a sensitive subject that involves nanometer-sized transistors in the process and requires a high level of accuracy so that even a small error can miss sectors on the chip.

After production at the factory is complete, the chip will then be tested. In testing, we looked at the running and non-running sectors on each chip. A chip (processor) that runs smoothly will be labelled (name) i9, which is the highest label. Chip (processor) that fails or does not work properly, will be deactivated by Intel, but will not immediately be thrown away. The chips that fail will get further tests, with Intel's standard percentage values. 

After getting the percentage value, the chip (processor) that has been tested will be entered into the category. The chip with the highest percentage value gets the i9 label, a lower percentage of i9 will get the i7 label, a lower percentage of i7 will get the i5 label and those lower than i5 will get the i3 label.

So, the Core i3, i5, i7 and i9 processors are the same product, but with different test results. This applies to all processors. So do not be surprised if we find a processor with the same name but have different speeds, for example, there is a Core i9 processor with a speed of 2.9GHz, there is also a Core i9 with a speed of 2.4GHz and others.

From the test results that resulted in the width of the Core i3, i5, i7 and i9  there are differences in performance that can be seen due to the failure of several sectors on the chip.

Differences in the performance of Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 and Core i9


1. Core i3

Core i3 has dual cores in it. Both cores can run two instructions at the same time. 
  • Able to integrate Virtualizing Technology with the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) so that it can run faster.
  • Does not have Hyper-Treading, which has the ability to simulate the number of cores present.
  • Clock Graphics Processor 100 MHz.
  • L3 cache 4 MB.
  • It has Turbo Boost technology for automatic overclocking that ranges from 2.93 GHz to 3.2 GHz.
  • LGA Socket 1156.
  • More heat resistant and more efficient use of power.

2. Core i5

Core i5 has Dual Core in it, but there are some that have Quad Core. 
  • Has Turbo Boost automatic overclocking maximum ranging from 2.4 GHz to 3.33 GHz.
  • Hyper-Treading Support.
  • LGA Socket 1156
  • L3 Cache 4-8 MB.
  • Intel HD Graphics.
  • Maximum RAM 16 GB.
  • Hotter than Core i3.
  • Suitable for tough jobs, such as playing games, programming, design.

3. Core i7

Core i7 is equipped with a Quad-Core processor design in it, with a speed of 3.07 GHz on each processor. There are several i7 series that provide six Quad Core processors. 
  • Being able to split four processors into eight parts, so that heavy work processes can be run optimally.
  • Turbo Boost automatic overclocking maximum ranges from 1.73 GHz to 3.33 GHz. L3 8-12 MB cache.
  • Maximum RAM of 24 GB.
  • Intel QuickPath Interconnect technology which functions to speed up the reading process of up to 25.6 GB / second.
  • Supports Hyper-Treading technology.
  • LGA Socket 1156.
  • Intel HD Graphics.

4. Core i9

Core i9 is equipped with a Quad-Core processor design in it, with a speed of 5.07 GHz on each processor. There are several i9 series that provide 8+ Quad Core processors. 
  • Being able to split four processors into eight parts, so that heavy work processes can be run optimally.
  • Turbo Boost automatic overclocking maximum ranges from 2.10 GHz to 5.00 GHz. L3 12-16 MB cache.
  • Maximum RAM of 24 GB.
  • Intel QuickPath Interconnect technology which functions to speed up the reading process of up to 128 GB / second.
  • Supports Hyper-Treading technology.
  • Intel 3D, 4k resolution Graphics rendering.
  • High-end gaming, Screen recording, Intense multitasking

Now you know where the differences are in the Intel Core i3, i5, i7 and i9 processors. If you want to buy a new device, be it a laptop or computer, we recommend that you buy a processor that suits your needs. Don't buy a Core i9 if it's limited to light use. Because Core i9 is expensive.
