What is the difference between Intel's i5 and i7 processors? If computers were like people, processors would be the “brain” of your computer. The time it takes for an application to load is affected by the speed of the processor itself. In the past, computer companies were racing to achieve the highest GHz (processing speed) ratings as possible. Intel introduced the Duo-core and Quad-core processors that allowed us to go faster and do more. However, sometimes it is difficult to understand why newer Quad-core processors have slower GHz ratings than some Duo-cores. Why has processing speed given way to more cores?
