    Understanding processor power consumption/performance


      Hi Intel,


      Really a simple question: what is the difference between i3/i5/i7 models (and similarly m3/m5/m7) in terms of power usage, performance and heat generation? Are the i7 cores able to give better processing performance with the same power draw/heat generation as i5 and i3? Or are they just more stable and hence able to use more power (and thus generate more heat) for an increased performance?
