Intel Core i5 Dual-core Processor With dual processing cores, the multitasking monster Dual-Core Intel Core i5 processor delivers twice the performance on highly-threaded applications, taking your desktop PC experience into a completely new realm of mega power. The powerful processor delivers serious performance on the ultra-demanding games of today and tomorrow. The innovative 32nm dual-core technology optimizes thermal performance for reduced power consumption and noise.
Intel Graphics Technology Intel Graphics Technology provides a visually stunning experience optimized for Blu-ray and HD video with Windows Vista support and comes standard with many notebooks, desktop computers and motherboards—without the need to add an external and costly graphics card.
Intel Advanced Smart Cache Intel Advanced Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared L3 cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from fast L3 cache, resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
Intel Turbo Boost technology Intel Turbo Boost technology maximizes speed for demanding applications, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload-more performance when you need it the most.
Greater Performance with Hyper-Threading Technology Hyper-threading enables multi-threaded software applications to execute two software threads in parallel to improve system responsiveness. Intel Core i5 enabled with HT Technology delivers performance and multitasking gains that result in increased productivity and efficiency.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production. Combined with existing power saving features, EIST may provide an excellent balance between providing power when you need it and conserving power when you don’t.
