Features at a Glance

Features Benefits
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.06 Dynamically increases the processor’s frequency, as needed, by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits.
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology7 Delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner.
Intel Built-In Visuals

Intel® HD Graphics — Allows playing of HD videos with exceptional clarity, viewing and editing of even the smallest details of photos, and playing today’s modern games.

Intel® Quick Sync Video — Delivers excellent video conferencing capability, fast video conversion, online sharing, and fast video editing and authoring.

Intel® Clear Video HD — Visual quality and color fidelity enhancements for HD playback and immersive web browsing.

Integrated Memory Controller Offers stunning memory read/write performance through efficient prefetching algorithms, lower latency, and higher memory bandwidth.
Intel® Smart Cache Dynamically allocates shared cache to each processor core, based on workload, reducing latency and improving performance.
Intel® Virtualization Technology8 Allows one hardware platform to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. Offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI)9 Fast, secure AES engine for a variety of encryption apps, including whole disk encryption, file storage encryption, conditional access of HD content, internet security, and VoIP. Consumers benefit from protected internet and email content, plus fast, responsive disk encryption.
Intel® Power Optimizer & Processor C-States Intel® Power Optimizer increases periods of silicon sleep state across the platform ingredients, including the CPU, chipset, and third-party system components, to reduce power. Processor C-states (C8-C10) provide low idle power.
Configurable TDP Power With Configurable TDP, the processor is now capable of modulating the maximum sustained power vs. performance. Configurable TDP thus provides design and performance flexibility to control system performance based on the cooling capability and usage scenarios. For example, a detachable Ultrabook™ may need more performance when used in a full clamshell mode (vs. tablet mode), or when balanced performance is needed in a quiet conference room setting.
