Developed and manufactured by Intel, the Core i5 is a computer processor, available as dual-core or quad-core. It can be used in both desktop and laptop computers, and is one of four types of processors in the “i” (Intel Core family) series. The first i5 processor was released in September 2009 and new generations of the i5 continue to be released (2020).
The Core i5 processor is available in multiple speeds, ranging from 1.90 GHz up to 3.80 GHz, and it features 3 MB, 4 MB or 6 MB of cache. It utilizes either the LGA 1150 or LGA 1155 socket on a motherboard. Core i5 processors are often found as quad-core, having four cores. However, a select few high-end Core i5 processors feature six cores.
The most common type of RAM used with a Core i5 processor is DDR3 1333 or DDR3 1600. However, higher performance RAM can be used as well if it’s supported by the motherboard.
