Drivers and Software
The Intel processor number is just one of several factors—along with processor brand, system configurations, and system-level benchmarks—to be considered when choosing the right processor for your computing needs. Read more about interpreting Intel® processor numbers or Intel® processor numbers for the Data Center.
The date the product was first introduced.
Lithography refers to the semiconductor technology used to manufacture an integrated circuit, and is reported in nanometer (nm), indicative of the size of features built on the semiconductor.
Cores is a hardware term that describes the number of independent central processing units in a single computing component (die or chip).
Burst frequency is the maximum single core frequency at which the processor is capable of operating. Frequency is typically measured in gigahertz (GHz), or billion cycles per second.
CPU Cache is an area of fast memory located on the processor. Intel® Smart Cache refers to the architecture that allows all cores to dynamically share access to the last level cache.
Scenario Design Power (SDP)
Scenario Design Power (SDP) is an additional thermal reference point meant to represent thermally relevant device usage in real-world environmental scenarios. It balances performance and power requirements across system workloads to represent real-world power usage. Reference product technical documentation for full power specifications.
Embedded Options Available
Embedded Options Available indicates products that offer extended purchase availability for intelligent systems and embedded solutions. Product certification and use condition applications can be found in the Production Release Qualification (PRQ) report. See your Intel representative for details.
Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type)
Max memory size refers to the maximum memory capacity supported by the processor.
Intel® processors come in four different types: Single Channel, Dual Channel, Triple Channel, and Flex Mode. Maximum supported memory speed may be lower when populating multiple DIMMs per channel on products that support multiple memory channels.
Max # of Memory Channels
The number of memory channels refers to the bandwidth operation for real world application.
Max Memory Bandwidth
Max Memory bandwidth is the maximum rate at which data can be read from or stored into a semiconductor memory by the processor (in GB/s).
Graphics Base Frequency
Graphics Base frequency refers to the rated/guaranteed graphics render clock frequency in MHz.
Graphics Output defines the interfaces available to communicate with display devices.
Max Refresh Rate
Max Refresh Rate indicates the frequency with which a monitor's display is updated.
Max Resolution (eDP - Integrated Flat Panel)‡
Max Resolution (Integrated Flat Panel) is the maximum resolution supported by the processor for a device with an integrated flat panel (24bits per pixel & 60Hz). System or device display resolution is dependent on multiple system design factors; actual resolution may be lower on your device.
OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is a cross-language, multi-platform API (Application Programming Interface) for rendering 2D and 3D vector graphics.
USB (Universal Serial Bus) is an industry standard connection technology for attaching peripheral devices to a computer.
Baseband functions refers to the mobile telephony protocols supported by the baseband processor.
An RF transceiver is a chip that transmits and receives a high frequency radio signal.
RF Transceiver Functions
RF transceiver functions refers to the mobile telephony protocols supported by the RF transceiver.
Protocol stack is the software implementation of a networking protocol suite that defines the communication between each layer of the network
Secure Boot ensures that only trusted software with a known configuration executes as part of the boot process. It enables the hardware root of trust which starts the authentication chain for platform firmware and subsequent software load, like the operating system, for example.
An instruction set refers to the basic set of commands and instructions that a microprocessor understands and can carry out. The value shown represents which Intel’s instruction set this processor is compatible with.
