Generation of Intel®
Core i5 processors are for mainstream users that need faster performance for more intensive tasks such as playing games or watching 4K content. Core i5 processors also have a more powerful integrated GPU, more cache memory and support for Turbo Boost.
Intel CPUs have a number of built-in features to ensure top of the line performance. When using processor-intensive applications, Turbo Boost 2.0 increases the clock speed while Hyper-Treading lets each core run two threads for even more efficient multitasking. Additionally, the integrated memory controller provides a direct connection between the memory and the processor for fast data processing.
