Difference Between Intel 5th Generation and 4th Generation Processors



Intel 4th Generation Processors gave a huge boost in the world of computing last year, At the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show Intel launched their next iteration of Intel Processors architecture, new Intel 5th Generation Core i3 , Core i5 and Core i7 processors were build on 14nm microarchitecture, these are also known as Broadwell processors. Previous 4th Generation Processor were build on 22nm microarchitecture they are also known by Haswell Processors. you can also check out Difference b/w Intel 4th generation and 3rd generation processors,

In theory the major difference between Intel 5th Generation and 4th Generation Processors is common, in every iteration of microarchitecture they just do shrinking of sizes of die in nano scaling but, this process adds new technologies features, improves existing technologies, enables new possibilities in graphics, computing and delivery maximum performance and increased battery life.

In Intel 5th Generation processors the main focus was to archive greater performance and battery life in compact sizes like ultrabooks and tablets. They are making Tablets and Ultrabooks as powerful as Desktop computer without sacrificing battery life, 5th Generation processors are designed to be thinner, lighter, fanless and more power efficient computing. When compared to 4th generation processor new 5th generation processor improved x100 internal graphics performances.

Finally words :


Without get very technical, the primary differences for the average person are relatively small. If you are using 4th Generation Laptop and you are a normal user then there is no effect of 5th Generation processors, your 4th Generation Laptop is Likely to Last more 2 - 3 years.

I recommend 5th Generation processors for those who are in the field of Information technology (IT) / Superusers. to enhance their latest IT applications with new Technologies, 5th Generation processors are best battery optimized processors compared to Intel previous processors. So if your Applications are sucking more battery, you need shift to these latest processor tablets / laptop / ultrabook.
