Tips to Knowing Which Type Of CPU Is The Right To Take Home
CPU, or more familiar to the processor, is the most important brain in a computing system. Of course in the market, we can choose a variety of processors, and bring home the one that best suits the needs. But the question is, how to choose one processor that is really right? The answer is simple: we should be able to recognize the characteristics of the processor and the codes it shows.

How to Choose the Right CPU

Central Processing Unit

When you come to a computer or laptop store and sort some products from the many series offered, usually you will see the name and type of processor. Well, the type and name of the processor can make you confused. For example: is the Corei7-7Y75 CPU faster than its brother, Core i5-7200U? How fast is a CPU needed?

The above questions will be more easily answered by first dividing the category of use in accordance with the purpose of purchasing a laptop. That is, everyone must have a certain purpose when buying a laptop, and each type of laptop has its own specifications. Below we will provide a list of laptop and CPU user descriptions suitable for each category.

For gaming/workstation
This one category requires a high-end CPU. Core i5 or i7 HQ Series could be an option. For example here: Core i5-7440 HQ or Core i7-7820HK.

For daily productivity with boost feature
Here can be selected CPU from Core i7 U Series, for example, Core i7-7500U

For standard daily productivity
Core i5 U Series is more than enough, for example, Core i5-7200U, Core i5-6200U, Core i5-6300U

Super thin, with mediocre performance
Core m / Core i5 / i7 Y Series are the types that can be an option. Here includes Core m3 or Core i5-7Y54

Low budget laptop performance
Pentium or Celeron processors can be an option, such as the Pentium N4200 or Celeron N3050

Laptops are very cheap, but poor performance
Atom Series is an effective choice. Examples are: Atom X5, Atom X3, Atom Z3735F

Perhaps among us wondering why only Intel processors are the reference? Like it or not, Intel processors are products that dominate the CPU market for now. And this fact does not seem to be deterred in the next few years.

How to recognize CPU code

Often we will see a series of codes embedded in the CPU body. For example here: Intel Core i7-7Y75. The code after the "Intel Core" brand represents the family type of the processor, for example, written in the example: i7, i5, or i3. However, the family code can be replaced with another code, such as E, x5, m5, or N. Next, the number 7 is displayed after the family type code of the processor indicates the generation of the processor. So it is clear that we see the seventh generation Core i7 processor.

Then you will see some combination of numbers consisting of two or three digits, and a letter that says U, or Y, or HQ, or HK. Two or three digit numbers present before the letters indicate the SKU and the letters displayed thereafter indicate the processor line. The processor line code is important to recognize because it will tell you how much power (in watts) is required by the product.

So recognize the CPU code first, before you drop the option on a laptop brand. This will help you determine the priority scale and adjust it to your daily needs. We've discussed some important facts related to Intel processors especially those embossed with i3, i5, and i7.
