What is Core: Definition and 484 Discussions

Intel Core are streamlined midrange consumer, workstation and enthusiast computers central processing units (CPU) marketed by Intel Corporation. These processors displaced the existing mid- to high-end Pentium processors at the time of their introduction, moving the Pentium to the entry level. Identical or more capable versions of Core processors are also sold as Xeon processors for the server and workstation markets.
As of June 2017, the lineup of Core processors includes the Intel Core i3, Intel Core i5, Intel Core i7, and Intel Core i9, along with the X-series of Intel Core CPUs.

    Do Magnetic properties change?

    Hi Quick question related to magnetism If I have a magnetic core and place that core onto a magnet, then roll the core on a flat surface ( whilst its still on the magnet), does that increase the permeability and magnetic field of that core ? If so, what is the theory behind that. thank you in...

    Using air core solenoids in a lab exercise

    I found a box of air core solenoids and was hoping someone could me think of a useful lab to use them for. They are about 700 turns each. They carry 7 to 10 amps. However I think I think I would only be able to provide 3 amps because of the power supplies I have. I would like to use them to do...

    I just started my master's degree and I'm currently taking a course in astrophysics. However, it seems like I have misunderstood what prevents stars from collapsing (I will elaborate below). Why is it, that as soon as a massive star has finished the fusion processes, the collapse will happen in...

    Advantages of Circular vs Cylindrical Inductor Core?

    B Could anything heat back up the core of Mars?

Is there anything that people could...

    What's different in a transformer core when coupling high & low power?

    This is one of those 'oh, I am not sure I know the answer' kind of thoughts. The strength of magnetic flux in a transformer core is a function of volts per turn, Faraday figured that one out. So, if I have a light load on a secondary (let's say it is pure ohmic for now, let's not confuse it)...
