Features and benefits
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology maximizes speed for demanding applications, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload—more performance when you need it the most.
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology)² delivers two processing threads per physical core for a total of four threads for massive computational throughput. This 4-way multi-task processing allows each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time. Available on Intel® Core™ i5-600 processor series.
Intel® HD Graphics provides superb visual performance for sharper images, richer color, and life-like video and audio. Available on Intel Core i5-600 processor series.
Intel® Smart Cache is a shared cache dynamically allocated to each processor core, based on workload. This efficient, optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from the fast cache, significantly reducing latency to frequently used data and improving performance. Optimized for industry-leading multi-threaded games.
The 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family delivers smart performance and built-in visuals for a visibly better PC experience.
