Succession
Core 2 Quad

Core i7 is a family of high-end performance 64-bit x86-64 processors designed by Intel for high-end desktops and laptops. Core i7 was introduced in 2008 following the retirement of the Core 2 Quad family. Core i7 microprocessors are the high-end brand from the Core family, positioned above both the Core i5 and the Core i3.

Overview[edit]

Introduced as the successor to the Core 2 Quad in 2008, the Core i7 represents Intel's high-end performance processors, above both the mainstream consumer performance Core i5 and the entry-level consumer performance Core i3. Likewise, Core i7 processors offer the most complete set of features

Members[edit]

Intel has traditionally been grouping Core i7 processors into generations based on the microarchitecture they are based on with 1st generation being based on Nehalem in 45 nm with the latest chips based on Skylake manufactured using a 14 nm process.

1st Generation (Nehalem)[edit]

Mobile[edit]

2nd Generation mobile Core i7 processors were based on Sandy Bridge, an entirely new microarchitecture that provided higher performance at higher power efficiency along with many other improvements and changes. Those new models also integrate a higher performance GPU onto the same die as the microprocessor as well as introduced a new SIMD AVX instruction set extension as well as a number of new technologies. It's also worth pointing out that the ulta-low voltage models are now 1 watt of TDP less than previous generation while having higher clock speed. All Core i7 has the following features in common:

7th Generation (Kaby Lake)[edit]

Main article: Kaby Lake Microarchitecture
7th Gen Core-i7-badge.png

7th generation Core i7 processors, models which were introduced by Intel in early 2017, are manufactured on Intel's improved 14 nm process "14nm+" which allowed for higher clock speeds at similar voltage levels. As such most models enjoy a modest 100 to 300 MHz clock increase over their previous generation for the same price (Note that clock-for-clock there is no performance improvement over 6th generation Core i7). Overall very few minor features were introduced in the 7th Generation Core i7 models, including improved GPU support for 4K playback via native hardware acceleration. All models incorporate a 600-series integrated graphics processor which is largely identical to their 6th generation 500-series counterparts.

Desktop[edit]

Desktop 7th generation Core i7 processors were launched in January of 2017. While their clock-for-clock performance is identical to their 7th generation counterparts, they are clocked higher which allowed for a slight performance increase. All desktop models use Socket LGA-1151, are quad-core with Hyper-Threading, and have the following common features:

The 7th generation Mobile Core i7 processors which are based on the Kaby Lake microarchitecture were introduced in mid-2016 with later models introduced in early 2017. All mobile models use BGA-1356 socket for U-series models and BGA-1440 socket for H-series, are dual-core with Hyper-Threading, and have the following common features:

8th Generation (Kaby Lake Refresh)[edit]

8th gen core i7 logo.png

Mobile[edit]

In August 2017 Intel introduced 8th generation mobile Core i7 processors. Contrary to their namesake, those initial chips were still based on the same Kaby Lake microarchitecture as 7th generation. Those new microprocessors do bring some considerable performance increase mainly in multi-threaded applications due to Intel doubling the number of cores from 2 to 4 while maintaining roughly the same price as previous generation. All mobile models still use soldered BGA-1356 socket and as with previous generation, those new mobile Core i7 chip also have Hyper-Threading enabled, providing 8 threads for all models.

It's worth pointing out the those 8th generation models incorporate the UHD Graphics 620 integrated graphics which, other than the new branding, is identical to previous generation's HD Graphics 620 specs-wise.

8th Generation (Coffee Lake)[edit]

Main article: Coffee Lake Microarchitecture
8th gen core i7 logo.png

8th Generation-core based on the Coffee Lake microarchitecture were introduced in early 2018. Those parts offer are manufactured on Intel's third generation 14 nm++ process which allowed for higher clock frequencies.

Desktop[edit]

See also: Coffee Lake S

Coffee Lake-based Core i7s were introduced in late 2017 with a number of high-end SKUs. A larger number of SKUs were introduced in April 2018. Although they still use standard Socket LGA-1151, those parts are no longer backwards compatible with earlier 100/200-series chipsets and must be paired with an appropriate 300-series chipset. A significant configuration change has taken place with the introduction of Coffee Lake including bumping the core count for the Core i7s from 4 cores to 6 and appropriately increasing the L3 cache which has significantly increased the performance of those parts over the prior generation. All models have the following features in common:
