Hey guys.., i came with another question.. how should i know about the generation of an intel processor..?

like ,

I have a dell laptop i.e, Dell Inspiron n411z, with this processor details:

Intel® Core i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30 GHz, 2300 MHz, 2 core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

and also desktop, with this processor details:

Intel® Core i3 CPU 540 @ 3.07 GHz, 3059 MHz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

this is from System Information in windows 7, i don't know of which generation are these processors, i heard from a friend that generation can also be known from the sticker, but i don't know about that, so simply my question is, how to know of which generation is that intel processor..??!

Thanx :)

And sorry if any0ne found my english to be p0or as its not my first language..! :rolleyes:

Just start CPU-Z and you see the code name of the CPU like Sandy Bridge of Haswell.

Also you can know what generation CPU is at the CPU numer.

2xxx is Sandy Bridge -> like I7 2600k

3xxx is Ivy Bridge -> like I7 3770k

4xxx is Haswell -> like I7 4770k

These processor has three digits e.g 760, 950, 540
