The Intel Core i5-650 Processor brings great performance, Intel HD Graphics, and the latest Intel technologies to your desktop computer.With two cores running at 3.2 GHz, the Core i5-650 won't have any problems handling your everyday applications. And when you need an extra burst of speed, the processor can utilize Intel Turbo Boost Technology to run at up to 3.46 GHz.
Multiple Cores for Speedy, Multi-Threaded Performance
The Intel Core i5-650 contains two processors, or execution cores, on one integrated circuit. Combined with four threads, the Core i5-650 can simultaneously work on multiple tasks.
This design produces faster and more efficient results, so your computer won't slow down--no matter how many applications you have open.
Turbo Boost Technology Gives Extra Speed When You Need It
Intel Turbo Boost Technology automatically oversees your workload,redirecting power and moderating performance for better efficiency. In the past, unused portions of a chip would be turned off, leaving some cores idle. But with Turbo Boost Technology, unused performance is now routed to active cores, boosting performance without wasting power.With Turbo Boost enabled, the Intel Core i5-650 Processor accelerates from its usual 3.2 GHz up to a maximum single-core frequency of 3.46GHz.
Hyper-Threading for Better Efficiency
The Intel Core i5-650 Processor features Intel Hyper-Threading Technology to deliver more efficient use of resources and better performance on multi threaded software. You'll be able to run demanding desktop applications, such as music and movie creation applications,while running background applications, such as virus protection software, and still maintain system responsiveness.
Large Smart Cache for Better Media Performance
Intel Smart Cache provides performance-maximized storage for frequently accessed data. The Intel Core i5-650 has a generous 4 MB of Intel Smart Cache kept close to the processor, so there's always data feeding in.The result is better overall functionality for everyday applications and markedly improved performance for rich media titles and games.
Intel HD Graphics Built-in
With the Core i5-650, Intel HD Graphics is built right into the CPU, so you won't have to spend money on an external graphics card in order to get stunning results. Intel HD Graphics provides sharp images, rich color, and lifelike audio and video. Intel HD Graphics support multiple monitors, premium video such as Blu-ray Disc playback and main stream gaming as well as a full Windows 7 experience., The Core i5-650 has a graphics core that runs at 733 MHz to maximize viewing power.
Advanced Technology to Keep Your Computer Secure
The Intel Core i5-650 has security features that make it ideal for business use. Intel Trusted Execution Technology provides a hardware-based set of extensions that enhance security capabilities,protecting your computer against software-based attacks and protecting the confidentiality and integrity of data stored on your clients' PCs.
