More and more, the average person is using their computer for incredibly processor-intensive tasks like 3D multi-player gaming, HD video editing, and more. So you need a CPU that can do more than just handle the demands, it needs to excel. Fortunately, Intel® is constantly raising the bar for CPU speed and capabilities, and their new 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i5 and Core™ i7 processors, codenamed Ivy Bridge, are the latest design to set that bar even higher. They do more, they do it lightning fast, and they’re coming our way.
Like most people, you’re probably running a bunch of different applications and programs at once. And if anyone understands what that needs from a CPU, Intel does. That’s why they’ve developed Intel Hyper-Threading Technology. It allows each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time, delivering the performance you need for smart multi-tasking. What does that mean in the real world? As an example, multimedia enthusiasts can create and edit graphically intensive files while running background applications such as virus protection software without compromising system performance. Or go ahead and open spreadsheets, surf the web, copy files, and watch video, all at the same time. You won’t even notice how hard your CPU is working.
Different applications put different demands on your CPU, so you need one that can react accordingly, and allocate speed and power where and when it’s needed. That’s exactly what Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 was designed to do. It dynamically adjusts speed where it’s needed, and gives you an extra burst when you need it most. Your 3rd gen Intel Core processor will operate at a level that’s higher than it’s rated for for short durations to maximize performance.
Want amazing graphics and true-to-life visuals? With 3rd generation Intel Core processors you don’t need any extra hardware. All that capability is built in. Intel HD Graphics and Clear Video HD Technology integrates the graphics engine and media processing right on the chip to give you stunningly life-like graphics and sharper, smoother images with richer colors for a true feast for the eyes.
3rd generation Intel Core processors deliver amazing performance, stunning visuals and give you the speed you need whether you’re working, creating, sharing, exploring, gaming, or doing all of those at once.
