Intel's first Core processors made their debut in 2006. At this point, children born in the same year are almost old enough to drink. Over a half-dozen generations of Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 CPUs have come and gone since then but most consumers are still asking the same kinds of questions.

Intel Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7? What's the difference? Is it worth it to own a CPU with more cores, a faster clock-speed or advanced features like hyper-threading?

Unless you're looking to embrace AMD’s new Ryzen processors (Looking to learn which CPU is best: Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen? Check out our full feature here), you’re almost certainly going to have to make the choice between Intel's three families of consumer-grade processors. 

In the past, we’re analysed what the difference between an Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 CPU was for things like Intel's 7th gen. Kaby Lake processors and whether Google’s mesh node Wi-Fi system lives up to the hype. But with the advent of Intel’s new Coffee Lake, Ice Lake and Whiskey Lake CPUs, there’s a whole new generation of PC buyers facing the same familiar decisions.

No matter who you are, you’ll want to know whether an Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 CPU is the right choice for you and this buyer's guide is here to help.

Thinking of building a new PC around Intel’s high-end Core i9 processors? Check out our guide to Which Intel Core CPU is best here

Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 — the difference in a nutshell

If you want to boil things down to something plain and simple, then generally speaking, "most" Core i7 CPUs are better than most Core i5 CPUs, which are in turn better than most Core i3 CPUs. 

Below that, you’ve got fare like the Intel Celeron and Intel Pentium processors. We’re not going to go to deeply into those and how they compare to Intel's Core proecessor, since this article is specifically focused on the difference between Intel’s Core i3, Core i5 and i7 CPUs - but they do merit a mention.  

intel-core-i9-logo-100791578-orig.jpgCredit: Intel

If you're building your first PC, the main thing you need to keep in mind here is that the 3, 5 and 7 attached to each family of Intel Core processors are simply meant to be indicative of their relative processing power. They’ve got nothing to do with the number of cores in each CPU nor the speed of each. Intel’s Core i7 CPUs don’t have seven cores nor do Core i3 have three cores.

Which family an Intel Core CPU falls into is based on a collection of criteria involving their number of cores, clock speed (in GHz) and cache size, the number of Intel technologies they integrate also plays a role. In other words, you’re much less likely to find things like Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading in an i3 processor compared to an i5 or i7 processor. 

At the most basic level, these numbers reflect where each class of Intel Core CPU sit relative to one another and are intended to give consumers an idea of the kind of performance they should expect from each. 

Essentially, the idea that Intel are looking to convey with this CPU classification system is that PC builders should expect:

  • An Intel Core i3 to provide adequate performance for basic tasks

  • An Intel Core i5 to provide good performance for most tasks

  • An Intel Core i7 to provide great performance for the most demanding of tasks

Since some older i7 CPUs might not out-perform more recent i5 CPUs, these designations shouldn’t always be taken as gospel but if you’re after a short and easy way to understand which processor is better, the numbers attached to each Intel Core family serve nicely.

Intel’s Core i3, i5 and i7 processors can also be grouped in terms of their target devices. Some are intended for us inside laptops, others are intended for use with desktop PCs. Wattage is the big differentiator here, since CPUs inside mobile devices generally have to make do with less power draw,

In some cases, the difference in specs and performance for the desktop and laptop variants of Intel’s i5 and i7 CPUs can be quite significant. However, to avoid confusion, let's start by exclusively talking about the desktop variants. 

Number of cores

intel-xmm-8160-modem-1-100779874-orig.jpgCredit: Intel

While the number of cores inside an Intel Core CPU isn’t everything, the more cores there are, the more tasks (known as threads) can be served at the same time. This means that a PC with a higher core-count is going to be better for tasks where multithreading is important, such as web servers, web browsers and some video games.

While there isn’t a hard and fast rule around it, you’re also more likely to find less cores in a Core i3 than you are a Core i5 or i7. With a few exceptions, such as Intel’s 8th Gen Core i3 “Coffee Lake” CPUs, most Core i3 CPUs only have two cores. 

The reason for this is that i3 processors are designed to hit a lower price-point more than they are push boundaries for performance. They tend to be found inside PCs that target a more budget-conscious market-segment where the need for a device to be affordable eclipses the demand for higher performance. 

As you’d expect, Intel’s Core i5 processors tend to be more powerful than their i3 counterparts. Part of this comes down to faster average clock speeds. Part of this comes down to additional cores. More cores means these CPUs can handle more threads at once and faster clock speeds mean they can complete tasks more efficiently.

In years past, Intel’s Core i5 CPU line-up has generally been built around CPUs with up to four-cores. However, in recent times (like the 9th-Gen Coffee Lake refresh), Intel have upped the ante to six cores for many of their i5 CPUs. This includes stuff like the Intel Core i5-9400, Intel Core i5-9500 and Intel Core i5-9600.

Lastly,  you’ve got Intel’s Core i7 CPUs. Again, you’re looking at both faster average clock speeds and additional cores. Intel’s Kaby Lake i7 Core CPUs included only four cores but the more modern Coffee Lake family of i7 CPUs feature up to eight cores and standard clock speeds that range go up to 3.6Ghz. 

At this point, you may be wondering just how important clock speeds are. The answer: pretty important. However, when it comes to clock speed, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind. 

The first is that, in general, a higher clock speed is better. However, due to the thermal issues involved, processors with more cores tend to operate at a lower clock speed.  Often-times, choosing a CPU involves choosing between a CPU capable of delivering faster clock-speeds or choosing one with more cores.

This brings us to the second thing you’ll want to keep in mind: faster might be better but it's not always necessary. Although a faster core might be more efficient than a slower one, it might not necessarily be better for the tasks you want to use your computer to be better at.

Many applications only run single-threads while others are designed to utilize multiple. For cases where the latter applies, such as video rendering and gaming, having more cores is going to offer up an enormous improvement over having faster ones.

Rather than run out and dropping the cash on the CPU with the fastest clock speed you can find, it might be worth thinking about what the clock speed you actually need looks like. To that end, it's worth looking up the recommend system specifications for the game or software you'll be running on your new PC.

For more everyday things like web browsing, an i5 processor with a higher clock speed is probably going to offer more bang for your buck than a beefier i7 might. Still, sometimes it’s more important to have those extra cores than an i5 or i7 CPU includes and often-times the choice between one Intel Core CPU and another will come down to whether you want to have a CPU with more cores or one with better clock speeds.

Are you building a PC that does the things you might do or are you happy to settle for one that can do the things you need it to do?

The other thing you’ll want to factor in here is that there’s an important difference between a CPUs standard clock speed and turbo clock speed. The former is the normal clock speed that an Intel CPU is able to deliver. The latter refers to the fastest speeds it can reach using Intel’s Turbo Boost features.

These sorts of technologies, found exclusively in Intel CPUs, are one of the key things that separate i3, i5 and i7 processors - since the more-affordable i3 CPU (plus some i5 CPUs) often don’t include them.

Intel Core i7 vs. i9: What’s the difference?

Intel’s top two CPU lines are known as Core i7 and Core i9, but other than that mild numerical difference, what does that actually mean in terms of real-world features, performance, and pricing? A higher number generally indicates better performance, but there’s a little more to the story than that.

Intel’s most recent desktop and mobile generations blur the lines between the i9 and i7 markers. To help you decide which is the right CPU for you, we’ve pitted the Intel i7 versus Core i9 to see how much you really get by upgrading.

Related articles

Should you buy a Core i7 or i9?

It depends on what you’re doing, but most users won’t notice much of a difference between an i7 and i9. For the i7, Intel’s new-generation processor is the 11700K. It’s an eight-core CPU with 16 threads that can boost up to 5GHz. Intel pegs its TDP at 125 watts, mirroring last gen’s 10700K. However, like that chip, the 11700K can draw far more power under load.

Intel recently replaced the 10900K with the 11900K, which looks like an odd step back. The newer CPU comes with two fewer cores and four fewer threads, but it maintains a high boost clock.


The current i9 and i7 processors are very similar on desktop, as we’ll get into in the next section. Without a core advantage, the 11900K doesn’t have the same reach that the 10900K did in multithreaded workloads. The 11700K is around $150 cheaper, too, depending on where you look.

For mobile, you have the choice between a newer i7 or an older i9. Intel staggered its last two mobile releases, porting the desktop Comet Lake design to laptops before releasing its 11th-gen Tiger Lake platform. If you’re shopping for a laptop, it’s less about the processor you should choose and more about the laptop’s design. Thin and light laptops top out with 11th-gen i7 processors, while beefy workstations or gaming laptops may feature a Comet Lake i9.

Core i7 vs. Core i9 on desktop

Before diving in, it’s important to define Intel’s CPU naming scheme. We have a full breakdown, but for the purposes of this guide, you only need three suffixes. “K” processors are overclockable, “F” processors lack integrated graphics, and “T” processors draw less power at the cost of clock speed.

Intel’s current Rocket Lake lineup has five i7 processors, but they’re all similar. The 11700K and 11700KF are both unlocked with eight cores and 16 threads, and they have a base clock of 3.6GHz with a single-core boost of up to 5GHz. Below, there’s the 11700 and 11700F. These processors are clocked slightly lower with a base clock of 2.5GHz and a single-core boost of up to 4.9GHz, and they cut the TDP from 125 watts to 65 watts. Finally, there’s the 11700T, which is a power-optimized processor with a TDP of only 35 watts. It can drop as low as 1.4GHz, but can still boost up to 4.6GHz on a single core.

The i9 lineup is almost exactly the same, just with a few differences in clock speed. The 11900K and 11900KF start at 3.5GHz and boost up to 5.3GHz on a single core, while the 11900 and 11900F top out at 5.1GHz at only 65 watts. The 11900T is almost identical to the 11700T, just with a slightly faster boost clock (4.9GHz).

Rocket Lake features a new microarchitecture, but it’s still built on the 14nm process node Intel has been using for years. It’s strange, then, that the 11900K looks like a downgrade compared to the 10900K. Although there are generational improvements, the newer i9 comes with two fewer cores and four fewer threads. On paper, it’s identical to the 11700K outside of clock speed.

We normally recommend i9s for their core advantage in applications that favor a lot of cores. That’s not the case this generation. The 11900K may perform better than the 11700K, but it doesn’t perform $150 better. You’re getting almost identical specs on the 11700K, and with a little overclocking, exactly identical ones. It’s possible Intel will limit the memory controller on the 11700K, though.

Intel’s X-series HEDT CPUs offer up to 18 cores for workstation users, which can be useful for software that can take advantage of greater core counts. They are hard to recommend for anyone else, though, as they are very expensive for what they offer (especially when compared to the AMD competition) and are based on much older CPU technology.

Core i7 vs. Core i9 in laptops

Intel’s most recent CPU releases have all been mobile offerings, from the impressively capable 9th-generation Core i7 and Core i9 chips to the 10nm Ice Lake, 10th-generation CPUs that started shipping in August 2019. The former starts with the six-core, 12-thread Core i7-9750H, which can boost up to 4.5GHz and maxes out with the stupendously powerful Core i9-9980HK, which has a full eight cores and 16 threads, plus a maximum single-core turbo speed of 5.0GHz. These were the first mobile processors with eight cores to be found in relatively thin and light laptops — and from the tests we’ve seen, they’re incredibly powerful in multithreaded performance.

MacOS Catalina Hands-on | Macbook Pro

It was the most powerful mainstream mobile processor we’d ever seen, showing up in top configurations for the Dell XPS 15 OLED and MacBook Pro. But more recent Ice Lake processors offer some stiff competition. The top-tier Core i7-1068G7 CPU might not quite reach the same clock speeds (topping out at 4.1GHz on a single core), and it only has four cores and eight threads, but it does so for just 28 watts.

In comparison, the big Core i9 CPUs draw as much as 45 watts. One Core i7 Ice Lake CPU, the 1060G7, can operate with as low a TDP as 9 watts. They also enjoy much more capable, 11th-generation, Intel Iris Plus graphics.

Intel’s latest 11th-generation Tiger Lake mobile processors have a number of improvements over last generation’s, particularly in Adobe applications with artificial intelligence (A.I.) processing and in applications that benefit from improved single-threaded performance. There isn’t an i9 in the Tiger Lake lineup. For i7s, there are three options: The i7-1160G7, i7-1165G7, and i7-1185G7.

These chips all come with four cores and eight threads, with max turbo speeds ranging from 4.4GHz on the 1160G7 to 4.8GHz on the 1185G7. All of these chips, including the i9, come with Intel’s new Xe graphics, too, and although the new tech isn’t as impressive as a discrete GPU, it can still put up reasonable frame rates at medium settings in games like Battlefield V.

Intel also offers Comet Lake processors in a mobile form factor, and that’s where you’ll find the i9s. The i9-10980HK has an extremely impressive boost clock on paper, but with a TDP of 45 watts (up to 65 watts), it’s a hot chip by mobile standards. By contrast, the slowest i7-1160G7 consumes between 7 and 15 watts, while the i7-1185G7 tops out at 28 watts.

To be clear, these are all high-performance chips with a power budget to match. It’s worth noting that the i9 requires significantly more power than the three competing i7s. Even with an impressively high clock speed, standard mobile cooling solutions won’t let you reach it.

Although you will likely find multiple Intel generations while shopping for a laptop, newer is better. Between an i7 and an i9, it depends on what kind of laptop you want. If you want a thin and light laptop, stick with 11th-gen Tiger Lake processors. Although the lineup tops out with a range of i7 processors, they draw far less power than Comet Lake i9 processors, and the onboard graphics are no slouch when it comes to entry-level gaming. On the flip side, if you want a gaming notebook or mobile workstation, you can probably afford the power and thermal requirements of an i9. Regardless, it’s important to read individual laptop reviews rather than rely on specs alone.

What about Core i5 CPUs?

If you won’t use everything the Core i7 or Core i9 offers, you can find something better suited for your needs — and your budget. Intel also offers a variety of more budget-friendly, modest options.

These affordable CPUs are often referred to asCore i5 CPUs, and they offer a majority of the beginner Core i7 CPUs’ performance capabilities for a lot less coin. The Core i5 can even match some of the aspects of the i9’s gaming capabilities if you know how to increase the clock rate of your computer.

Once you’ve reached a $200 or $300 spend, it may be a good idea to start browsingAMD’s Ryzen CPUs. They offer higher core counts and greater all-around performance, especially in multithreaded workloads. The 5000 series CPUs’ single-threaded performance has been upgraded withimprovements that make it on par with other Intel cores in gaming computers, too, so don’t rule them out if you’re looking to upgrade your PC or laptop.

I8 intel

Is there an i8 processor?

In brief, there is no core i8 or any Intel I series which is even. The intel Core I series are denoted by odd numbers and the biggest number normally denotes the latest series and capabilities of the processors.

Do we have Core i4?

A2A: The biggest difference is that the Intel Core i5 CPU is an existing designation for a family of computer processors made by Intel while the Core i4 DOES NOT EXIST.

Why isn’t there i1 i2 i4 i6 between i3 i5 and i7?

Why isn’t there i1, i2, i4, i6 between i3, i5 and i7? – Quora. The number of cores in a processor are usually even numbers, I’ve never heard of any with odd numbers. Therefore, if the i3 was named i2, people would think it was dual-core; same with if the i5 was named the i4, people would think it was quad-core.

Is i8 better than i7?

The main difference between iRobot i7 and i8 is that the i8 lasts long and thus is able to cover more surface area than the i7 because the battery of the i8 is 20% larger than the i7. The i7 can run for up to 75 minutes, while the i8 can run for 90 minutes. The i8 has more suction power than the i7.

Is the i9 9900K good for gaming?

Intel has traditionally held the lead in gaming performance, even against AMD’s newer Ryzen processors, and the Core i9 9900K still does. If you’re rocking a 9900K in your current machine then the good news is that there’s really no need to upgrade, the performance you’re getting is still right up there.

Is Ryzen 9 3900X overkill?

As previously mentioned, the R9 3900X is overkill for purely gaming as you’re not going to see any real difference between Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 9 in terms of gaming performance. However, having the extra cores can prove useful when you throw streaming, video encoding, etc.

Should I get 3900X vs 9900K?

The Core i9-9900K has a base frequency of 3.6GHz and a maximum boost frequency of 5GHz, compared with the Ryzen 9 3900X’s base 3.8GHz speed and 4.6GHz maximum boost. Here, at least on pure specs, the Ryzen 9 3900X wins hands down. It comes with support for 3,200MHz DDR4 memory and a whopping 70MB L3 cache on the die.

Is i9-9900K overkill for gaming?

Is i9 an overkill?

Yes the Core i9 will be an overkill for most of the users. Processors like Pentium and core i3 or even i5 with good clock speeds and RAM will be enough for doing daily office work.

Is Intel i9 overkill?

Unless you plan on cramming multiple high-end GPUs into your PC or you also need to use some very CPU-intensive professional software, then an i9 would simply be overkill. In any case, check out our CPU buying guide for some of the best picks!

What is better i7 or i9?

Speaking generally, i9s are simply faster processors than are i7s – more cores, higher clock, more cache. The big differentiator is when it comes to Hyperthreading, the feature that creates two processing threads for every physical core. For 9th Gen Core processors, Intel has restricted Hyperthreading to i9 only.

Is an i9 10900K overkill?

Both the Core i9-10900K and the Ryzen 9 5900X qualify as overkill for most games played at resolutions above 1080p, so if you’ve got either a 1440p or 4K display, you’d be better served spending less on your CPU and shifting the rest of that budget into a beefier graphics card instead…

Is 10th Gen worth it?

The 10th gen Ice Lake laptop processors are definitely worth it as they use the new Sunny Cove cores which have 18% better IPC over Skylake and use Gen11 graphics. The 10th gen Comet Lake and Cascade Lake are useless since they’re basically refreshed parts from last gen with zero architectural improvements.

Which is better Ryzen 7 or i9?

The Core i9-9900K surpasses the Ryzen 7 3800X when it’s combined with DDR4-2666 memory, Intel’s official supported memory speed. The Core i9-9900K performs roughly 14.48% and 0.56% faster in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.

Is 10th Gen Intel good?

Intel’s 10th gen Core i9-10900K is—without a doubt—exactly as Intel has described it: “the world’s fastest gaming CPU.” Intel’s problem has been weaknesses outside of gaming, and its overall performance value compared to AMD’s Ryzen 3000 chips.

Is there an i8 processor ?

intel core i9

When a lot of computers users hear of the release of the 8th generation Core i9 processor some are tempted to think which is the Core i8 processor.

I know this might sound a bit ridiculous but there is no i8 processor. The  Intel series of processors is odd to take an example i3, i5, i7, and the recent i9.

All these I series are odd in the same sense. Each and every I series has some capacity expected from its users. For example

Intel I series

i3 – Developed and manufactured by Intel, the processor is expected to do all the basic computing stuff with your PC such as typing, editing, play cards, watching movies and others. The Core i3 was the replacement of the dual-core processors.

The Core i3 comes with multiple speeds ranging from 1.30 GHz up to 3.50 GHz and features either 3 MB or 4 MB of cache. It’s only a select few high-end Core i3 processors which are quad-core ( have 4 cores )

i5 – better if you do enjoy functions that require high-end specs such as casual gaming and light editing. 

Currently, all Core i5 processors, except for the i5-4570T, are quad cores. The Core i5-4570T only a dual-core processor with a standard clock speed of 2.9GHz.

i7 – You can use this I series for hardcore activities such as gaming, editing, machine learning and other stuff that require machines with high-end specs.

Currently, the Core i7 is under the family of 64-bit x86 CPUs with up to eight cores from Intel that were introduced in 2008 as the successor to Core 2.

The Core i7 chips were the high-end CPUs in the Core “i” line prior to the i9 in 2017

i9 – This is another 8th generation processor that is already out there in the market. The i9 processor was designed for PC and if put in a laptop, the device will drain your battery in just no minutes (it doesn’t matter how big the battery is ).

Core i9 represents Intel’s most prestigious chip family, offering the best performance at the highest price. The Core i9 chips are priced from $999 to $1699.


In brief, there is no core i8 or any Intel I series which is even. The Core I series are denoted by odd numbers and the biggest number normally denotes the latest series and capabilities of the processors.
