Intel Hyper-Threading Technology enables multiple threads to run on each core, thus allowing the processor to run more efficiently. As a feature, it also advances processor productivity reforming overall performance on threaded software.
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 increases processor and graphics performance for maximum load, automatically enabling processor cores to operate faster than the rated operating frequency if they’re working below power, current, and temperature specification caps.
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
Not forgetting that all-important security software, 7th Gen Intel Core processors and above have got you covered with hardware-based protection called Intel Online Connect that allows users to relax while working both online and offline. Features such as the Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) help applications protect your system and your data while Intel® BIOS Guard and Intel® Boot Guard acts alongside to that aid in protecting your system during boot-up.
Intel Smart Cache
With application demands constantly changing, Intel Smart Cache is an innovative and flexible feature that speeds performance by combining the total cache and allocating specific cores wherever they’re most needed at any given time.
Intel UHD Graphics
Thanks to the remarkable speed of data transfers from the in-built Thunderbolt 3 technology that combines all your cables into one compact port, consumers can enjoy stunning 4K Ultra HD visuals, super-smooth editing and sharing of 360 video and flawless in-game performance (even with the most demanding games).
