Intel 2nd Generation Core Processors - Core i7 Processors
2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor
The Intel® Core™ i7 processor delivers best-in-class performance for the most demanding applications. This quad-core processor features 8-way multitasking capability and additional L3 cache. With adaptive performance and built-in visual capabilities this 2nd generation processor brings more intelligence to your PC.
2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors feature Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0? and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology?, enabling required security applications and protocols to run efficiently in the background without compromising productivity.
Today's more visually sophisticated communication needs will be met with Intel® HD Graphics 2000 Technology, integrated into 2nd generation Intel Core processors. This eliminates the need for a discrete graphics card, reducing power consumption and system cost.
With 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processors, you get the following features built in:
- Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0? dynamically increases the processor frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits.
- Intel® HT Technology? allows each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time.
- Intel® Smart Cache is dynamically allocated to each processor core based on workload, which significantly reduces latency and improves performance.
- Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions add hardware acceleration to AES algorithms and speeds up the execution of AES applications.
? Intel® Turbo Boost Technology requires a PC with a processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology capability. Intel Turbo Boost Technology performance varies depending on hardware, software, and overall system configuration. Check with your PC manufacturer on whether your system delivers Intel Turbo Boost Technology. See www.intel.com/technology/turboboost/ for more information. ? Requires an Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology)-enabled system, check with your PC manufacturer. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software used. Not available on the Intel® Core™ i5-750. For more information, including details on which processors support HT technology, visit www.intel.com/technology/platform-technology/hyper-threading/index.htm. ? Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT), Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT), and Intel® 64 architecture require a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, enabling software and/or operating system, device drivers and applications designed for these features. Performance will vary depending on your configuration. Contact your vendor for more information. ? 64-bit computing on Intel® architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers, and applications enabled for Intel® 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. Consult with your system vendor for more information. ? Built-in visual features are not enabled on all PCs and optimized software may be required. Check with your system manufacturer.
