As we know, generally we use the word "generation " for human generations but do you know that laptops also have their generations. In laptops,  the age of the CPU (Central processing unit) is known as the 'generation'. The newer generation of laptops is more developed, has more features, and is more power-efficient than the older ones.

For example - An Intel core processor i9 (9th) generation is more powerful and features than an i7  (7th) generation in terms of its design, window version, battery efficiency, display, processing power, etc. Like this, the coming 11th generation is also more advanced and featured than i9 Gen 9 and i10 Gen10.

When the demand for more advanced or developed versions of the laptop becomes high it automatically leads to a higher generation. A significant change that we could easily notice is in the shape and size of the laptops, the better versions that are coming are thinner. In other words '"generation " in a laptop also refers to the capacity, power, and speed of the processor. A higher generation of laptops has advanced new parts with new features which introduce us to better technology to connect with the world. So, to make a strong interconnection with the world we have to understand laptops and their generation. In the passing years, a lot of development had happened in the field of computers, (PCs) and laptops. A lot of advanced technologies come up with innovations. To understand every dimension of the laptop we have to understand its new technologies as well. Before buying any electronic devices we focus more on their efficiency and laptops, we also focus on their efficiency or their performance in terms of their wifi, screen system, cache backup support, battery life, Al intelligence, lower power consumption, better internet connectivity, etc. Newer generations can adapt and access the technology with their new parts. There are a few examples of intel core processor gen through which we took an overview before buying a laptop - 

Intel® Core™ Processors, the first number that is listed after i9, i8,i7, i5, and i3 of a processor is the generation of the laptop.

Example of  11th generation -

Intel® Core™ Processor i7-1165G7. So this is the 11th Gen laptop because the first no. after i7 is 11.

Intel® Core™ Processor i5-1130G7  is also of 11th Gen.

Examples of 10th generation-

Intel® Core™ Processor i7-1065G7  is of 10th Gen.

Intel® Core™ Processor i5-10210U,  the first no. listed after i5 is 10 so, it is of 10th Gen.

Examples of 9th Generation -

Intel® Core™ Processor i9-9900K Processor is of 9th generation because the first number listed after i9 is 9.

Examples of 8th generation -

Intel® Core™ Processor i7-the 8650U Processor is of the 8th generation because the first number listed after i7 is 8.

Intel® Core™ Processor i5the -8600 Processor is also of 8th generation.

 Examples of 7 th generation-

Intel® Core™ Processor i7-7the   920HQ Processor is of 7th generation.

Intel® Core™ Processor i5-the 7200U Processor is also of the 7th generation because the first number listed after i5 is 7.

Intel® Core™ Processor i3-the 7350K Processor is also of  7th generation.

Examples of 6th generation -

Intel® Core™ Processor i5-6400T Processor is of 6th generation.

Examples of 5th generation -

Intel® Core™ Processor i7-the 5650U Processor is 5th generation because the number 5 is listed after i7. 

So by these glances at the first number after i9, i7, i8 so on. we find out the generation of a laptop or its the processor.

There are furthermore points for checking out the best laptops before buying or the steps that we should focus on -:

1. Choose the correct processor

Intel and AMD are the two largest manufacturers in the world of laptop processors.

So, in the space of a variable variety of laptops with numerous topmost company labeling, we only find two varieties of processors Intel and AMD. More probably intel has budget-friendly laptops while AMD raised the mark in its budget. So, choose your correct processor.


2. Choose and check the labels of processor and generation

Above we discussed how the generations and processors play an important role in the performance of the laptop so, check the labels.

3. Take detailed information about Core and threads

The processor chip in a laptop is made up of a small separate core that is used in performing one task at a time.

The task of the processor can only be completed in the given time known as threads.

The latest generation of AMD is AMD Ryzen 5000 series which has 6 cores and 12 threads. Multitasking can be done with more cores.

4. Instructions per clock and clocks -

IPC refers to the number of instructions that processors have finished off in one cycle.

On the other hand, the clock refers to the speed of each core in which a task is done. It is also denoted by gigahertz(GHz) and megahertz(MHz). Higher clock speed leads to the better and faster working of the laptop.

5. Get specific information about IG

Integrated graphics is the individual processor of graphics that is present in the CPU its main work is to process the graphics on the screen.

Intel has pre-installed IG while AMD hasn't.

6. Thermal design power

We always prefer a laptop with lower power consumption and works faster than the previous one. So, we need to check the Power and thermal specification for it.

So, this is all about the generation of laptops.
