Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
Higher performance when you need it the most. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 accelerates processor and graphics performance for peak loads, automatically allowing processor cores to run faster than the rated operating frequency if they’re operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits. Whether the processor enters into Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and the amount of time the processor spends in that state depends on the workload and operating environment. This results in increased performance of both single and multithreaded applications.
Enhanced Intel® Speedstep Technology
Enhanced Intel® SpeedStep Technology (EIST) is a power and thermal management technology developed by Intel®. EIST was introduced as a means of enabling high performance while meeting the power-saving needs of a mobile computer system.
Essentially, EIST throttles the clock speed of a central processing unit (CPU) during periods requiring minimal demand. It then brings the clock speed back up to its maximum potential when demanded by the load. This allows a computer to save power when there is less to process, yet still achieve high performance when the demand is high.
Intel® Online Connect
Intel® Online Connect enables simple and secure fingerprint touch payments (additional hardware required) and adds a layer of protection for online accounts using hassle free, built-in two factor authentication. So, when you’re using online services, such as a login with Facebook, Google, Dropbox, and Dashlane, you have an easy way to protect your identity in addition to your username and password. Requiring two factors of authentication to enter your login details derails hackers, making it extremely difficult to access your account, even if your username and password are stolen. Because Intel® Online Connect is built-in and offers strong authentication with a mouse click, you don’t have to rely on an external USB device and wait for a security key or code on your phone.
