Intel Core i7 Difference Between Models

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 business and high-end consumer markets for both desktop and laptop computers.

Intel’s Core i7 processors are based on the Penryn manufacturing process the company introduced last year, but otherwise there are few similarities with the Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, and Core 2 Extreme lines. Also new to Core i7 is the elimination of the front-side bus (FSB).

The Core i7 name was introduced with the Bloomfield Quad-core processor in late 2008. In 2009 new Core i7 models based on the Lynnfield desktop quad-core processor and the Clarksfield quad-core mobile were added and models based on the Arrandale dual-core mobile processor were added in January 2010. The first six-core processor in the Core lineup is the Gulftown, which was launched on March 16, 2010.
