a PC world fans Adam here with Gordon a laptop expert I have a question for youthat I know a lot of viewers out there have and I'm curious about myself if Iwas looking to get an ultrabook with an i-5 I got my heart set on the i5 versionwhy would I get the i7 version is there really a benefit to upgrading to an i7well if you actually look at the face of these or both of these are 15 watt oneis a core i5 one is a core i7 both are quad cores both quv turbo boosts bothgive you hyper threading the only real difference is the i7 gives you a higherboost clock 4.
2 gigahertz versus 3.
4 gigahertz okay so you like wow 800megahertz sounds like a lot that's what I'm gonna get out of my 7 vs.
ice 5 Iwould argue that most people can't feel that it is real it's not like it's madeup I know people gonna say oh it's tool you ripoff it does you don't getanything real then 800 megahertz does make a difference on very short loadschrome like you made run a chrome script he may be a little bit faster just ahair for some people they may notice it I would argue most people would nevernotice it and when you're looking at quad core hyper threading turbo boostsand I 5 vs.
i7 it's so close I would I would say most people I 5 fantastic CPUthat maybe like our same rules apply for whiskey like you there's really not muchof a difference same thing you know you get the boost clock with i7 very shortBercy loads it's real folks but most people can't feel the difference ok soso maybe I should just stick with the i-5 well here's the thing Dell HP Lenovoa sir I'm not picking on you they all know what the deal is most people go 800megahertz this doesn't seem like a lot I'm not gonna I'm just gonna get the i-5yeah you go to the store we try to buy on with the i-5 I want a 2 terabyte harddrive or SSD sorry folks and I want touch screen no sorry youwant those options the big options the big SSDs the touch the pen all the coolstuff a lot of times you could only get in AI 700 man that's how they get youthat's how they get you they know like you know what we're not gonna I guessthey could argue you don't need it you're buying an i-5 but honestly if youbought an i-5 with touch and with a turbine SST that is everything you needbut they want to they want to get you a couple extra options so they dosegmented that way up there it's how they segment it that's how they get youwell what if I'm looking to get a big honkin gaming laptop instead of anultrabook there is it still worth it to upgradefrom an i5 to and I said yes thank you ain't L for the confusing lineup in biglaptops gaming laptops 15-inch laptops it actually does make a difference thisis a 45 watt coffee lekha CPU it's a fantastic CPU the the core i7 gives yousix cores turbo boost hyper-threading is a fantastic cpu it's it's just anawesome chip the core i5 version though unlike ultrabooks where there's onlyreally that turbo boost difference Core i5 45 watt part quad core so quad versussix so four cores versus six cores six cores more than four right for videoediting a lot of sort of the 3d renderingyeah six cores is really worth it it's a lot faster than four cores okay andgaming felt I would argue that for most people who don't need to stream andencode on the laptop at the same time a quad core is fine we were fine with kblake h parts with quad cores we were happy with that an i5 quad core honestlyfor most people same thing you would you'd be perfectly happy with an i5 overan i7 with six cores for the vast majority of games I play okay but whatis are there any extra caches like the ultrabooks yeah same thing they knowlike you know what you won gtx 1070 max q you want a 1080 you're not gonna getthat with an i5 you're not gonna get out easy with that we want you to pay forthe i7 dang it most of the budget you know entry level gaming laptops in factI 580 308s quad core 10 d 1050 TI's okay you can see your your10 80s or 10 70s those are going to be with your i7 so yeah and you know heyit's nice to have six cores most games don't need it but again if I had achoice between 1070 and a 1050 TI and somebody who's buying it for me I wantthat 1070 all sure I will take the trips of course as well it'll help me when Iedit my videos of my games later so very nice upgrade but yeah it definitelyworth a difference on this platform not so much there but you just can't get outof that okay well awesome that that's good that's good advice for sure.
