Intel® Turbo Boost technology maximizes speed for demanding applications, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload—more performance when you need it the most.²
Intel® Smart Cache provides a higher-performance, more efficient cache subsystem. Optimized for industry leading multi-threaded games.
Dual Core Processing: Run two independent cores in one physical package at the same frequency.
Integrated memory controller enables two channels of DDR3 1333 MHz memory, resulting in up to 21.2 GB/sec memory bandwidth. This memory controller's lower latency and higher memory bandwidth delivers amazing performance for data-intensive applications.
Intel® HD Boost significantly improves a broad range of multimedia and compute-intensive applications. The 128-bit SSE instructions are issued at a throughput rate of one per clock cycle, allowing a new level of processing efficiency with SSE4 optimized applications.
Intel® Hyper threading Technology - Delivers two processing threads per physical core for a total of four threads for better computational throughput.
