Which processor should your laptop have?

| March 13, 2017

More recently, Intel has updated its line of processors. They became a little faster at the expense of increasing the clock frequency and optimization of video. If you are already a few years did not buy ultrabook, you can easily get lost in the new models of the chips. We will tell you what to expect from new products and which processor to choose depending on your needs.

For gaming notebook

If you have decided exactly what you want is not compact and lightweight laptop, and a truly powerful machine capable of pulling all the modern game, the processors Intel has just that. In reality, of course, not specially for games, and for any resource-intensive tasks. In this case, during 2017, you can easily choose among the following names:

  • Intel Core i7-7700HQ
  • Intel Core i7-7820HQ
  • Intel Core i7-7820HK
  • Intel Core i7-7920HQ

They all have four cores and eight treated flows. All, with the exception of Intel Core i7-7700HQ, equipped with 8 MB cache. The top model, Intel Core i7-7920HQ, operates at a frequency of 3.1 to 4.1 GHz. But the most preferred choice – it is, of course, Intel Core i7-7820HK, which is Unlocked multiplier. Just do not forget that laptop should have overclocking support at the BIOS, the software under Windows, or even a dedicated button for acceleration, for example Lenovo IdeaPad Y910.

Also keep in mind that these processors are not well suited for long work on a single battery charge, and are rarely found in compact laptops.

For powerful ultrabook

Though gaming laptop, but still mobile, still sometimes need a laptop to every day, take it with you to the meeting or in pairs. This laptop should be light and compact, but if you want it to smooth operation, not only in e-mail client, but also in professional applications, you also need to look at the model of the processor. Though many ultrabooks and look the same, under the “hood” they can be quite different fillings.

To brand new ultrabook has not lost its original zeal in a year, in the good in him to be one of the following new processors:

  • Intel Core i7-7600U
  • Intel Core i7-7660U
  • Intel Core i7-7500U
  • Intel Core i7-7560U

They have at least twice as less productive than their older assemble those listed above, but it just three times colder. This allows you to put them in even the finest ultrabooks such as the ASUS Zenbook 3.

The main reason for lower performance ultrabook processors is that they have only two cores and four threads. Plus, even though clock speeds and claimed at up to 4 GHz, but in reality it is just a peak frequency, and slim because of the constantly high temperatures such processors often work on a par or even lower frequency.

But this ultrabook with these processors, especially when paired with solid state drives, easily able to replace your high-end PC end of zero years, offering more parallel and great battery life.

For unpretentious ultrabook

If ultrabook for you – redundant functionality and speed of the toy, you can always pay attention to Intel processors series Y. The best thing to it was Intel Core i5-7Y54 or Intel Core i7-7Y75. Beginning with the seventh generation, the giant “microchip” decided to further confuse consumers non-obvious name series. Now processors, the heat which is 10 times smaller than that of an older model lines also have names starting with i5 and i7. Thank God, yet their names remained the Y letter, reminding that even for these ultrabook chips – not fire.

hey are best suited for the most compact notebook models: the weight of barely more than a kilogram, the small 11-inch displays, as well as transformers and tablets on Windows. C Y series chips all you’ll still feel like a man, just will not be able to load the laptop is something serious. And rarely can approach the outlet.
