  • Why Should I Choose An Intel Core i7 PC?

    With more capabilities than the Core i5 and Core i3 CPUs, Intel’s Core i7 CPU is proving popular among gamers, but, why should you choose an Intel Core i7 PC?

    Core i7 8700 1050Ti Core i7 8700 1050 Ti Coffee Lake 8th Gen Gaming PC £799.96

    Number Of Cores and Threads

    As you would expect, the Core i7 has more cores than its predecessors, ranging from four to eight cores. The more cores there are, the more data the CPU can handle, and therefore, the more tasks or threads your PC can work on simultaneously.

    With the Core i3 and i5, only one thread could be served for one core. However, Core i7 processors support Intel’s Hyper-Threading technology, enabling each core to serve multiple threads. So, a standard four core i7 processor could run eight threads simultaneously.

    The Core i7’s increase in cores and threads is key for the avid gamer looking to complete multiple tasks quickly and simultaneously.

    Cache Size

    When you use the same data continuously, your CPU stores this data in its cache to help improve the speed at which it can complete tasks. The Core i7 features 8MB of cache, setting it apart from the the Core i3 and Core i5 which have 3-4MB and 4-6MB respectively. Again, this is ideal for PC users looking to complete repetitive tasks faster.

    Clock Speed

    Although the Core i3 appears to have a faster clock speed than both the Core i5 and Core i7, the Core i7 and i5 both benefit from Intel’s Turbo Boost technology. Turbo Boost increases the clock speed of CPUs when you need more power. This dynamic feature means that your CPU can draw less power, and usually produce less heat, by only running at a high speed when it needs to. So, although the Core i3’s base clock speed may appear higher, the Core i7 actually outperforms it once Turbo Boost is taken into account.

    Core i7 7700 Core i7 7700 Kaby Lake 7th Gen PC 8GB DDR4 1TB Windows 10 Pro £509.96

    Overall Intel’s Core i7 CPU enables you to do more simultaneously in less time, making it ideal for high-end gaming and multimedia tasks. Expertec stock a great range of i7 Gaming PC’s, starting from just £509.96. So, what are you waiting for? Shop online today for a great gaming experience.
