Core is considered to be a processor inside the processor. A core is competent to perform one discrete task while the other core looks after some other work. Most of the low budget and mid range laptops use dual core processors. However few high end laptops with core i5 and i7 processor feature 4 cores.
2. Thermal Design Power (TDP):The TDP looks after the amount of watts a CPU consumes. More TDP means better performance, but it also leads to higher temperature and more power consumption.
Clock Speed in measured in GHz or gigahertz. It refers to the number of cycles a CPU can execute. Higher the Clock Speed the better speed is expected.
3. Clock Speed:
The Turbo Boost function of CPU raises the clock speed temporarily from its base frequency to a higher one. Core i5 and i7 processors features this, however the core i3 models lack turbo boost.
4. Turbo Boost:
With the process of hyper threading the CPU splits each physical core to virtual cores known as threads. Most of the dual core processors use hyper threading to break the core into 4 threads, while the quad core processor break the core to 8 threads.
