When Intel Core i7-3540M Hyper-Threading technology was naturally activated whereby a total of four threads can be processed simultaneously. The two CPU cores are operated at 3.0 GHz, with a maximum clock frequency of 3.7 GHz. The latter is just one core alone possible, however, especially in applications that use only one core to bring a great advantage.
Technically Performance is the Core i7-3540M of Intel, about 5% against a comparable model of the previous generation. The performance is therefore also sufficient for demanding applications that use complex algorithms, such as. The HD video editing or even current 3D games.
Since integrated graphics units by more and more, has also Intel Core i7-3540M an Intel HD Graphics 4000. Its clock rate can be raised from 650 MHz up to 1300 MHz to meet the performance demands , The older HD Graphics 3000 is exceeded by approximately 40%, making the biggest leap in performance can be found here. The TDP lies, as well as in most previous models, at 35 W, whereby the processor is also suitable for smaller notebooks from 14-inch diagonal screen.
