The processor is the engine behind your computer processing critical information and instructions.The speed at which your system runs programs, loads pages, and downloads files depends in part on the processor. Bandwidth, clock speed, and the number of cores in the processor all help determine processor performance.
What is Overclocking? Increase processing power by fine-tuning your system to run your processor at higher settings than default specifications, helping speed up your components—and your gameplay.
Intel® Performance Maximizer (Intel® PM) can automatically increase processor frequency and give you a competitive edge by examining your PC's performance DNA, and programming a personalized setting for a custom overclock.
Intel® Optane™ memory is a smart technology that accelerates computer responsiveness. It accesses your computers frequently used documents, videos, games, and applications quickly and remembers them after you power off—enabling you to create, game, and be productive with less waiting.
The Intel® Core™ processor family spans several generations of processor upgrades. There are three basic family generations of note. Usually, the greater the number, the later the generation. For example, 12th gen is newer than 11th gen and 10th gen. These correspond to improvements in process technology and features to allow for more sophisticated applications, such as virtual reality, gaming and office productivity.In addition to generations, processors can also be categorized by Intel® Core™. Though there are multiple options within each category, there are four basic groups.Intel® Core™ i3, for entry-level performanceIntel® Core™ i5, for mid-level performanceIntel® Core™ i7, for high-level performanceIntel® Core™ i9, for highest-level performance
Clock speed, measured in megahertz (MHz) and gigahertz (GHz), represents how fast a processor moves. It's calculated by the number of clock cycles managed per second.
CPU Cache stores frequently used data and instructions close to your Processor for quicker access.
