Core I5 Laptop Description
When buying a core i5 is it important to note what generation microprocessor is it built with, the older the generation the slower the multitasking and processing speeds. Intel has been manufacturing and developing microprocessors since the 1980s. The first Pentium microprocessor was launched in 1993 with increased processing speeds and the ability to display graphics for games like Doom. Since then they have developed advanced technology that is integrated into laptops. Laptops with a large cache and RAM will be able to handle extensive usage and display advanced graphics. With every new generation of microprocessors introduced into the market, it is important to know which microprocessor does the laptop run. The transistor count on the silicon processor chip determines the performance by the computer systems, the higher the count the better. In 2006 Intel was determined to increase the transistor count while reducing the chipset size, this was called the Process-Architecture-Optimization Model.
The third generation microarchitecture called Sandy Bridge and the fourth generation called Ivy Bridge are both available for cheaper more affordable prices online. Even though they are considered outdated as compared to new generation models, users will still be able to run daily processing and gaming on these processors. They are in high demand due to their improved chip size from 32 to 22 nm that enables them to deliver high-intensity gameplay and video playback at 4K resolutions. The cooling mechanism installed for overclocking also improves processing rates. Without breaking the bank users can buy a core i5 laptop with 3rd or 4th generation microprocessor in Pakistan that will be able to function well for a variety of home and office tasks.
In 2014 the fifth generation microarchitecture titled Broadwell, reduced the chip size of the processor to 14 nm introducing the Tri-Gate transistor an Intel 3D design ensuring 30% less power was being used than before. The newer generations are called Karby Lake and Karby Lake Refreshed, they are widely popular due to their Turbo rate of 3.6 GHz and 4K video performance. With fast processing speeds and perfect visual displays makes them a reliable and powerful processing unit. Kaby Lake Refreshed was launched in 2018 and is readily available online in Pakistan under manufacturing companies like Lenovo, Dell, HP and even Apple Mac Books.
