One GHz represents 1 billion cycles per second. The speed of microprocessors, called the clock speed, is often measured in Gigahertz. For example, a microprocessor that runs at 200 GHz executes 200 billion cycles per second. Each computer instruction requires a fixed number of cycles, so the clock speed determines how many instructions per second the microprocessor can execute. To a large degree, this controls how powerful the microprocessor is.
Now days it is necessary that a Smartphone must have atleast 1GHz processor in it because now everyone is using smartphones for their daily work which they were doing on laptops earlier. Day to day, the load of work is increasing on smartphones so it is necessary that smartphones must have atleast 1GHz processor. We have made a list of some of the best smartphones which are above 1GHz processor.
- Samsung Galaxy Note 2
- Motorola Razr Maxx
- Samsung Galaxy S Duos
- HTC Desire VC
- Samsung Galaxy S3
- HTC ONE X
- Sony Xperia U
- Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus, etc

Intel has been leading the global chip industry as the dominant semiconductor supplier for more than two decades. Intel has launched 1st, 2nd and 3rd Generations (Generation is loosely applied to Intel processors to mean new and significant developments in processor architecture or functions) accordingly. But 2nd and 3rd generation processors are more popular than 1st generation due to various reasons.
There are various differences between these two generations (2nd and 3rd). A second generation Core processor is the family of processors known as Sandy Bridge, which among other things introduced shared cache and placed the memory controller, graphics and CPU on the same die. The 3rd generation is called “Ivy Bridge,” and is basically a copy of Sandy Bridge manufactured on a smaller scale, or die. However, Intel also focused on beefing up the integrated graphics in this generation. Ivy Bridge processors consumes a little less power and gives better (5-10%) performance. You can checout the processors avaialble in both these generations:
Here’s the 3rd Generation processors:
- Intel Core i5 3570K Processor 3.4 GHz 4 cores
- Intel Core i5 3450 Processor 3.1 GHz 4 Core
- Intel Core i5 3550 Processor 3.3 GHz 4 Core
- Intel Core i7 3770K Processor 3.5 GHz 4 Core
- Intel Core i7 3770 Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core
- Intel Core i7 3770S Processor 3.1 GHz 4 Core
Here’s the 2nd Generation Processors:
- Core i7 Extreme 3960X, 3930K, 3820
- Core i7 2700K, 2600K, 2600 and 2600s
- Core i5 2550K, 2500K, 2500, 2500s, 2500T, 2450P, 2400, 2405S, 2320, 2310, 2390T
- Core i3 2120T, 2100T, 2130, 2125, 2120, 2105, 2102, 2100.
- Pentium G860, G850, G840, G632, G630, G622, G620, G630T
- Celeron G540, G530, G530T, G460, G440
Now its time for selection, if you are gamer and want super hardware so that your game don’t lag then you need 3rd generation processor as its specialized for graphical work. Due to which processors enables 1080p HD video playback for streaming web content and Blue-Ray. There are more technologies like Visual Technology, Quick Sync Video and HD Graphics which enables 3rd generation processors to be in this generation. This doesn’t mean that 2nd generation processors are nothing, there’s also some power for smooth running of programs and games but extreme gaming is not supported by 2nd generation processors. If you want PC for daily routine work you may buy Intel 2nd generation. In today’s world most of the desktops and laptops run on 2nd generation processors but 3rd generation processors are getting space on the chart fastly.
Now days while Purchasing the computer there are many options available of every thing like Graphics solution, Screens and Processors and out of all of them processor is the main part of the computer which processes all the tasks running on the computer. So while purchasing the computer you should select best option for processors which suits you better. You may heard the name of two big companies which makes the processors one is Intel and other is AMD. Here we compare processors of both the companies for you to make correct decision while purchasing the computer.
- If you are taking performance above all than Intel processors are the way to go because AMD processors are currently not being able to compete with Intel for raw speed .
- AMD processors are capable of performing well with the quite affordable price. As Intel processors are costlier than AMD processors.
- It is not easy to select the Processor because their are different series of processors in both the companies. In Intel, Core 2 CPU’s are still available and second series is the Sandy bridge (i series) processors which is 40% faster than its predecessors they also come with an on-board graphics chip. So if you choose the Intel you should select the i series.
- In AMD their is Athlon II series which came into X2, X3 and X4 varieties but the performance of these processors in not good. AMD’s Phenom II is the other series of processors from AMD which have more cache memory than the Athlon II’s , running at higher clock speed and gives the better performance.
After looking at the product ranges of both the companies the question raises in our mind that which is the best? it all depends on what you are looking for. If price is the key than AMD processors are excellent choice because intel’s processors are little more expensive. If their is no issue with money and you want the processor which performs better than you should select Intel.
Rarely, people know about GPU and CPU is known by all of us and is better known as brain of computer. But what is GPU? and Difference Between them?
At older times CPU – Central Processing Unit handles all the processes and derive them to users. Than advancement came in the era of Processors and they started crunching more information at faster rate. But researchers need more speed out of the processor. So they elevated Graphical Processing from CPU to GPU – Graphics Processing Unit and this change not only increased processing speed but due integrated processing unit for Graphics betterised Graphics on our screens.
The new GPU can perform common graphics routines really fast. GPUs were originally developed to render 2D graphics but according to need it became faster and more specialized in its task. Insight64 principal analyst Nathan Brook wood described the unique capabilities of the GPU this way:
[quote]GPUs are optimized for taking huge batches of data and performing the same operation over and over very quickly, unlike PC Microprocessors, which tend to skip all over the place.[/quote]
Coming onto architecture GPU’s consist hundreds of cores which can handle various threads at a time in respect to CPU which have only few cores with lots of cache memory that can handle a few software threads only. GPU is also efficient in cost and power aspects. GPU’s make software to run at 100x faster speed than CPU.
With more advancement now GPU’s can be used for any purpose, not just graphics or video related purposes. Nvidia CUDA, the first true GPGPU which basically, is a way to use the GPU(s) on a video card as general-use supplemental processors. GPU-accelerated computing has now grown into a mainstream movement supported by the latest Operating systems from Apple (with Open CL) and Microsoft (using Direct Compute). The combination of a CPU with a GPU can deliver the best value of system performance, price, and power.
We already have discussed about Intel’s new ivy bridge series processors the series basically consist of i3,i5 and i7 Processors. Among all of them Intel core i7 processor is the most powerful. It consist of Turbo Boost Technology through which the processor can boost the clocking speed of the processor while doing some work with graphics like playing games, watching Movies, etc. It also come with an improved integrated graphics with Intel HD 4000 graphic which offers the faster frequency and grunt better than the 2nd generation while playing games on the system .
The 3rd generation Core i7-3770K CPU has the 8MB of smart cache which is used to store regularly used data. its also integrated with the DDR3 memory controller and it also consist of bunch of security and performance features like Intel source key.
Main features of 3rd generation Core i7 desktop CPUs
• Four cores
• Eight threads (with Hyper-Threading)
• Turbo Boost 2.0
• 8MB Smart Cache
• Intel HD 4000 graphics
• Best matched to Z77 chipset
As technology beefing up day by day , we are accepting upgraded variants of i7 processors and new series of processors from Intel. there’s also news that Microsoft’s newly reveled surface tablet was packed with Intel’s Processors.
To enhance users’ computing experience computer chip-maker Intel launched its third generation of Core processors.This new chips will be used in especially ‘Ultrabooks’ in to the market. The new-age CPU’s enhance the media experience and provides better graphic performance. The 3rd Gen Intel Core processors are very powerful the systems having these processors will wake in a flash meaning the system will transition from deep sleep to its active state in less than 7 seconds.
Connecting and file transfer becomes fast with USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt technology which makes a high-speed connection that allows incredibly fast transfers. Coming to security it is important to protect users data, devices and personal assets. Intel has given security more importance in the third generation Intel Core processor and has improved security features by including Intel Anti-Theft technology. By this technology the user can automatically disable the system if it is lost or stolen.
As these processors are especially used in Ultrabooks. So, According to analysts, ultrabooks is the next growth category in notebooks segment. Various reports suggest that ultrabooks could contribute more than 40 per cent of notebooks sales globally by 2015 from a mere 2 per cent in 2011.
