The Future Of Intel Processors - Core i3, i5 & i7 Optimized For Windows 7

Updated on November 28, 2009

The nomenclature for these Core iX products is quite simple as the Core i3 is to describe a processor which is satisfactory across a wide range of utilizations, the Core i5 is the next step up which is suitable for the majority of middle and high range applications while the Core i7 is current top-of-the-line and the one that the gamer enthusiast prosumer and scientific as well as workstation customer will continue to rely upon. The Core i3, i5 and i7s that have been introduced up until now have been based on the Nehalem family of microprocessors, but in the very near future these processors will begin to be shifted over onto the Westmere platform grouping.

The success of Windows 7 in the marketplace has also served to facilitate growth in personal computer sales. Intel has worked extensively with Microsoft at the most basic levels of Windows 7 in order to optimize the multi-threading of the applications to suit their multi-core strategy. This not only will result in better performance across the range but will also have ancillary benefits such as faster boot up time to the desktop. It is also important for Intel and Microsoft to work together in order to ensure that drivers and internal structures of Intel CPUs and SOCs are created in such a fashion that they interface readily with the solid state drives which are quickly becoming the norm, as the SSD technology improves their performance and drastically drops their price.

For notebook and laptop users, Intel has been focusing on the amelioration of their platform power management solutions, enabling the laptop or notebook to enter a state known as deep sleep and C6 sleep state more often in order to drastically extend battery life between charges. Windows 7 is going to significantly assist the market acceptance of Core i5 and i7 as the new operating system will allow these technologies to truly come into their own. Unfortunately Windows Vista has various bottle necks and overheads which hold back the expression of the utmost performance to be seen in the Core i5 and i7 families. The Core i5 and i7 personal computers optimized for use with Windows 7 can offer approximately three times greater performance of the currently median installed base of personal computers which is typically made up of PC systems running Intel Pentium 4 class central processing units.

Intel has been focusing on being able to develop a completely new infrastructure whereby the movement through the wide variety of computing devices, common use models, as well as the interfaces, are common to all devices so that the user does not need to be retrained continuously in order to work with them. All of these factors become seamless and are able to deliver content in familiar and recognizable ways through a variety of devices. The goal is to ensure that the format stays essentially identical and that the consumer and user experience then becomes scaled to be specific size and utilization of the device which the customer has.
