How Intel i series processors beating AMD


The processor is an electronic circuit which performs many operations. It is the most demanding part for every electronic item. As compare to other companies, Intel ‘i’ series microprocessor’s clocking speed and reliability is best in class. This microprocessor is an integral part of every personal computer of almost every brand like dell, hp and Lenovo etc. You can find the lowest number of cores in Core i3 CPUs. Each core plays a role of central processing unit that can perform a task. There are only two cores in Core i3 CPUs. Nowadays all Core i3s are dual core processors. Dual core can process two jobs at a time. Some core i5 is quad core processors and some are dual core processor. You can use core i3 processor in both desktop and laptop computers. It is the third type of processor in “i” series. There are many processors that are design by Intel for simplifying many tasks easily and fast. The purpose of designing i3, i5, i7 for laptop, is to make simpler the task of choosing a laptop.

AMD Vs Intel

Each company’s chips have their own features and advantages. An Intel processor provides many strengths including power preservation, graphics performance, dispensation speed, and processing power. AMD processor tends to be more reasonably priced than Intel chips. There are many things that AMD processors can do but Intel chips can’t.

  1. Price

AMD chips are cheaper than the chips of Intel.   The AMD chips start at about 30$ while Intel’s Celeron G1820 dual-core processor starts at about 45$. Intel’s chips always come in a little higher than AMD’s and provide extra performance. AMD has a quad-core processor that does not require a separate graphic card. Intel and AMD Retail approximate at the same price.

  1. Game performance

AMD provides many processors combine with Radeon graphics on the same chip which are sold as APUs. These provide brilliant value for low-end gaming. But chips of AMD aren’t as fast as Intel’s. If you have a bigger budget than Intel’s i5 and i7 CPUs can take appreciably better advantage of a high-end graphics card. If you have a very high-end graphics card Intel Core i3 or i5 can be as high as 30 or 40 frames per second even if the price is same of both processors. Overall, Intel is still the better choice. But if you choose a Ryzen CPU for a gaming purpose, it’s not going to slow down as much as some of AMD’s processor. At the end, we can say that AMD’s chip is far better than any chips of Intel.

  1. Clock speed

To compare one processor to another one of the first schemes you can look at is its clock speed — 2.6GHz, 4.5GHz, etc. It’s the best method to compare processors. But it’s important to know that it’s not a fixed figure. If you have the right knowledge about how to cool hardware, you can rise up the clock speed on some chips. Sometimes a user wants to obtain more performance from their CPU perform a jerk to the processor known as “over clocking,” which increases the CPU’s clock speed over the support rate.

At a different range of price, both Intel and AMD offer unlocked CPUs. AMD provides extra mid-range chips able of being over clocked than Intel does

Intel Core i3, i5, i7

The main difference in processor generations is processor micro architecture. Intel discarded its Core2 variety and busted out some new processors, named as Core i3, i5 and i7, which are even quicker and more efficient than the model it replaces. It simplifies the task of choosing a laptop.

These chips have the ability to involuntarily over clock themselves for extra performance or diminish their clock speeds to save battery life. Each chip comes with a graphics processor that is built directly on to the CPU. According to Intel, the innovative onboard GPU has 20 per cent more shaders and important component in the fight against judder 3D. This can enhance graphics presentation over existing Core 2 integrated graphics by some 70 per cent.

  • Intel turbo boost

Whenever the need arises to increase its clock speed, then the Intel Turbo Boost Technology allows a processor to increase it dynamically. The maximum amount of clock speed at any given time is dependent on the number of active cores, the approximate current utilization, the estimated power utilization, and the processor temperature. The maximum allowable processor frequency for Core i5-4570T is 3.6GHz. Because there is Turbo Boost in Core i3 CPUs, the i5-4570T can run faster than them whenever it needs to. Because all Core i5 processors are equipped with the most recent version of this technology. The Turbo Boost 2.0 can outrun any Core i3 processors.

  • Cache size

Whenever the CPU finds that it is using the similar information, again and again, it stores that data in its cache. Cache is just like RAM. It is faster than normal memories because it’s built into the CPU itself. Both RAM and cache work as holding areas for repeatedly used data. Without these holding areas, the CPU would have to keep on reading from the hard disk drive, which would take a lot more time. You can say that RAM minimize the interaction with the hard disk and cache minimizes interaction with the RAM. The benefit of large cache is that you can access a large amount of data quickly.

The Core i3 processors have either 3MB or 4MB of cache. The Core i5s have either 4MB or 6MB of cache. Finally, all Core i7 CPUs have 8MB of cache, except for i7-4770R, which has 6MB. This is a reason why an i7 performance is better than an i5 processor and why an i5 performance is better than an i3.

  1. Bottom line

There are some difference in gaming performance and overall performance of both AMD and Intel processors.  Intel’s research and development budget of single quarter is three times greater than the AMD’s research and development cost of one year.

  1. Availability

There is a lack of compatibility of AMD processors with other components. There are limited options or verities of AMD motherboards. The cost of the Intel motherboard is low and there are different verities you can select from.
