Intel Processors i7 Review and Features

Intel’s latest Nehalem desktop processors based on the new micro architecture will be famous as Intel Core i7 processors which include a great edition version. It features the Intel Hyper-Threading Technology also called as simultaneous multi-threading that is capable of handling about eight software threads on four processor cores. The Core name is and will be our flagship PC processor brand going forward, said Sean Maloney. The devices equipped with this new micro architecture will offer high performance and energy efficiency.  The renowned Intel Core processor brand name has gained preference over several years.

 The new Intel Core i7 processor aims at high-performance desktop PCs and carries a different black logo for Intel's high-end extreme edition; processor model numbers will be included to differentiate each chip. Devices based on this micro architecture are said to be in production in the fourth quarter of this year.

Intel Core i7 is an Intel brand name for several families of desktop and laptop 64-bit x86-64 processors using the Nehalem, West mere, and Sandy Bridge micro architectures. The Core i7 brand is targeted at the selling and high-end consumer markets for both desktop and laptop computers, and is distinguished from the Core i3 (entry-level consumer), Core i5 (mainstream consumer) and Xeon (server) brands.
In each of the first three micro architecture generations of the brand, Core i7 has family member using two distinct system-level architectures, and therefore two distinct sockets.[citation needed] In each generation, the highest-performing Core i7 processors use the same socket and QPI-based architecture as the low-end Xeon processors of that generation, while lower-performing Core i7 processors use the same socket and PCIe/DMI/FDI architecture as the Core i5.

Core i7  is a successor to the Intel Core 2 brand.[1][2][3][4] The Core i7 identifier was first applied to the initial family of processors[5][6] codenamed Bloomfield introduced in 2008. In 2009 the name was applied to Lynnfield and Clarks field models.[7] Prior to 2010, all models were quad-core processors. In 2010, the name was applied to dual-core Arrandale models, and the Gulf town Core i7-980X Extreme processor which has six hyper threaded cores. In January 2011, Intel released a line of Sandy Bridge based chips under the Core i7 brand.
