Introduced  around 2009 the two intel processors Corei5 and Core i7 have been the favourite subject of discussion for tech lovers.  A majority of people fail to distinguish between the features of the two processors. Here we break down the differences between Core i5 and Core i7 for you.

SPEED:

The most obvious difference between these two is their processing speed, with Core i7 having a larger cache memory and targeted at those with multi-taking, multi-media,high end gamming and scientificreasearch work requirements.It would not be correct to say that the Core i5 is a slow processor rather it it simply slower than Core i7 yet has an amazing processing speed.

CORES:

By core we mean thier own processors that  read and execute instructions.The greater the number of cores on a processor the faster it can function.

Most Core i7 processors are quad core, whereas Core i5 are dual core. However in some cases you might find out that some dual-core i7 processors and desktop  quad core i5 processors are also available.

HYPER-THREADING:

Refers to the new Intel technology where a single core can serve multiple threads (usually two). Core i7 processors support hyper-threading resulting in their ability of running about 8 threads at a time. Core i5 on the other hand does not support hyper threading.

TURBO BOOST:

A feature that enables a processor to temporarily function faster than its actual speed while working on a single task: Core i5 and i7 both support this feature but as expected core i7 is faster .

PRICE:

Core i7 processors are essentially more expensive than Core i5, with a difference of about $150.
