Intel Core i5
Information to the model number
In the four-digit model numbers, the first digit refers to the generation. If this is, it
other hand to a CPU of the first generation. Letters such as U, Y, S, or T also point to a lower TDP. With an M mobile processor is identified.
1. Generation Intel Core i5
The clock rates here are very similar to the Core i3 models and are a maximum of 3.33 Ghz. However, these processors feature called Intel Turbo Boost Technology, which gives them a distinct advantage. Because this allows the dynamic adjustment of capacity when there is a need for this. Otherwise, the power is reduced to reduce the power consumption. In addition, some quad-core CPUs are available, but who do not use Hyper-Threading, so logically come to only 4 cores.
2. Generation Intel Core i5
At the top models, such as the i5-2550K, here is a Turbo Frequency of 3.8 GHz is possible. Especially in comparison with the i3 versions but makes the round twice as large cache of 6 MB noticeable. However, the quad-core processors have still not Hyper-Threading and a graphics processor is not always integrated or activated. Establishments, these models in the LGA1155 socket.
3. Generation Intel Core i5
The Ivy Bridge microarchitecture can here in particular by a higher memory bandwidth, better power management, as well as a more powerful and consistent artwork available unit distinguished. This permits the operation of three independent monitors and supports common features such as HD displays and 3D technology. Furthermore, the new PCI Express version 3.0 is used, which provides a total of more data throughput in the system.
4. Generation Intel Core i5
With the new Haswell microarchitecture first increases the power consumption slightly, at least on paper. Because that gets the integrated GPU a significant upgrade and also on the system, some improvements were made. Therefore, it is not possible to continue to use cars with an Ivy Bridge motherboard model. To operate here, the LGA1150 socket is used. The notebook is also the new power-saving mode is noticeable, which makes for noticeably longer term and so helps some devices to more than 10 hours.
