Intel HD Graphics with Clear Video Technology
Intel HD Graphics Technology provides a visually stunning experience optimized for HD video without the need to add an external and costly graphics card. Intel Clear Video Technology is a combination of video processing hardware and software technologies for a wide range of digital displays which delivers enhanced video playback, sharper images, and precise color control for a premium visual experience.
Integrated DDR3 Memory Controller
With the integrated DDR3 memory controller, the Intel Core i5-520M enables two channels of DDR3 memory, resulting in up to 17.1 GB/sec memory bandwidth. Plus the memory controller's lower latency and higher memory bandwidth delivers amazing performance for data-intensive applications.
Intel Smart Cache
Intel Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
Intel Turbo Boost Technology
Intel Turbo Boost technology automatically allows processor cores to run faster than the base operating frequency if it's operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits, maximizing speed for demanding applications, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload-more performance when you need it the most.
Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology)
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology delivers thread-level parallelism on each processor resulting in more efficient use of processor resources—higher processing throughput—and improved performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST)
EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production, which means of enabling very high performance while also meeting the power-conservation needs.
