So, 1 year ago and 1 generation ahead and nothing has changed. I don't understand it a lot but the clock speed on 4th generation is 1.7GHz and the 5th generation is 2.2GHz. Is that all revelant for performance in games, 3d modelling, graphic design or whatever?
sorry for late reply, I don't enter this site often. For games like Battlefield 4 definitely go for quad core i5(if you are talking about desktop, if not then quad core i7 for laptop), it's one of the most processor demanding games for which quad procesors are highly recommended. A dual core i5 or i7 would run it decently(if we are talking about laptop gaming) or core i3(if we are talking about desktop gaming), but if you are aiming at high end gaming with an expensive videocard(Geforce GTX 770 or higher)get an Intel quad core
hello Сергей it look like you know a lot about processors, so can you tell which is the best processor for gaming is it intel i5 or i7 or other time and should it be quad core what do you advice? i also need it for big games like battlefield 4
I don't think the mobile processors will change the amount of cores. also, Haswell wasn't a big improvement over Ivy Bridge on the same 22 process while ivy bridge was over Sandy bridge when it just came out. They also delayed 5-th generation for a year and this is what we're getting? a tiny multycore perfomance improvement and WORSE single core perfomance?
They have to improve manufacturing process, give them time its a new process (14nm), should be better in near future. Especially power consumption is lower. I expect much lower frequency per core but more cores in the future and lower power consumption. I expect 2016th can be interesting.
yes it is, quite pathetic actually, not only it didn't even get near Ivy bridge's improvement in mobile segment, it even became WORSE at some things(single core perfomance)
Thank you for giving a cut short results....
IS 5° GENERATION 14NM
