I found this quite useful as a beginner to understanding lntel's suffix definitions for their processors.

For example:


http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html

The processor number is one of several factors, along with processor brand, specific system configurations, and system-level benchmarks, to be considered when choosing the right processor for your computing needs.

A higher number within a processor class or family generally indicates more features, but it may be more of one and less of another. Once you decide on a specific processor brand and type, compare processor numbers to verify the processor includes the features you are looking for.
