Examples of the 11th generation

  • Intel® Core ™ Processor i7-1165G7, since on i7 the number 11 follows
  • Intel® Core ™ processor i5-1130G7, since on i5 the number 11 follows

Examples of the 10th generation

  • Intel® Core ™ Processor i7-1065G7, because on i7 the number 10 follows
  • Intel® Core ™ processor i5-10210U, since on i5 the number 10 follows

Example of the 9th generation

  • The Intel® Core ™ processor i9-9900K is the 9th generation, since the number is on i9 9 follows.

Examples of the 8th generation

  • The Intel® Core ™ processor i7-8650U is the 8th generation because the number is on i7 8 follows.
  • The Intel® Core ™ processor i5-8600 is the 8th generation, as the number is on i5 8 follows.

Examples of the 7th generation

  • The Intel® Core ™ processor i7-7920HQ is the 7th generation, as the number on i7 7 follows.
  • The Intel® Core ™ processor i5-7200U is the 7th generation, as the number is on i5 7 follows.
  • The Intel® Core ™ processor i3-7350K is the 7th generation, as the number is on i3 7 follows.

Example of the 6th generation

  • The Intel® Core ™ processor i5-6400T is the 6th generation, as the number is on i5 6 follows.

Example of the 5th generation

  • The Intel® Core ™ processor i7-5650U is the 5th generation because the number is on i7 5 follows.

Example of the 4th generation

  • The Intel® Core ™ processor i3-4350T is the 4th generation, as the number is on i3 4 follows.

Example of the 3rd generation

  • The Intel® Core ™ processor i7-3820QM is the 3rd generation because the i7 has the number 3 follows.
