Top 10 Fastest Processors in the World 2011
Here we are going to talk about ten fastest processors in the market. Most of the processors are coming from Intel and you probably already own one on your Laptop or PC right now. Let us check the fastest processor one by one
10. Intel Core 2 Duo
Intel core 2 Duo is available in different variants. One embedded with 2 processor cores on a single Penryn chip or wolfdale, Conroe, Merom, and Allendale. Intel produces Intel core 2 Duo starts from the Intel core 2 slow power consumption 10W, 17W up to high performance oriented processor 25W,35W for mobile and 65W for desktop.
9. Intel Core i3
Intel Core i3 is produced to renew and alternate the old low performance Intel core 2 variants. Intel launched it on January 7, 2010. The first Intel core i3 is based on Clarkdale embedded 2 cores and arrandale.
8. Intel Core i5 (dual core)
Intel Corei5 is running with Nehalem microarchitecture. Intel introduced the processor on September 8,2009 as alternative option of earlier core i7. Intel core i5 processor has 8MB L3 cache, one DMI bus max 2,5 GT/s and it is compatible with dual-channel DDR3-800/1066/1333 memory
7. Intel Core 2 Quad
Intel Core 2 Quad is the improvement of Intel Core 2 Duo. Intel features it with multi chip micro constructor consist 2-multi chip module on core 2 Duo. Intel Core 2 Quad performs twice faster tan Core 2 quad at the same clock frequency.
6. Intel Core i5 (quad core)
Core i5 is a new variant processor that was launched together with other microprocessors in the last quarter of 2009. Intel core i5 is a medium performance processor that is higher than Core i3 and Core 2 but lower than Core i7 and Xeon.
5. Intel Core 2 Extreme
Core 2 Extreme processor is an extreme version from the variant Core 2 duo and Core 2 Quad. It has better and higher performance over high clock frequency, which attracts many overcloackers worldwide. Intel Core 2 extreme is a special edition processor with $999 price tag per unit.
4. Intel Core i7
Intel Core i7 is another Intel brand that is designed specifically to deal with high end market demands both personal computer and notebook or laptop. The variants of Intel core i7 use Sandy bridge microarchitecture, Westmere and Nehalem
3. Intel 6 core Xeon
Intel 6 core Xeon is a high performance processor, which is equipped with Intel turbo boost, Trusted Execution technology or TXT and AES-NI. All the ranges are hyperthreaded and embedded with 12 MB cache.
2. Intel Core i7-980X
Intel launched the processor in March 16, 2010. it has clock speed up to 3,3 GHZ, 12 MB cache, is capable to handle memory up to 24GB and is sold at a price range $999
1. Intel 10-core Xeon
Intel 10-core Xeon is new brand of Intel that already launched a month ago. The Intel 10 core is base on Westmere-Ex and it is designed to exceed the performance of Intel core 8 Nehalem-EX that was released in 2010. The chip supports up to 2TB memory and is now currently known as the most powerful and the fastest processor. Soon, AMD 16 core “interlagos” processor to outrun the 10 core.
