Built into every 2nd generation Intel Core™ processor, Clear Video Technology takes color accuracy to a whole new level bringing every image to life whether you're surfing the Net, catching an HD movie, or enjoying your own videos.

By using a combination of hardware and software technologies, Intel has enabled enhanced high-quality, 108p high-def image rendering in a variety of media including Blu-ray and streaming web content.

Intel® Turbo Boost 2.0
Just as Intel has released its next generation Core i-series processors, it also has improved its Turbo Boost technology with version 2.0. Automatically activated to increase processor performance to its highest state, Turbo Boost 2.0 enables the processor frequency to dynamically increase, based on demand, until maximum frequency is reached depending on the number of active cores. In addition, Turbo Boost 2.0 uses several algorithms working together to power, current, and temperature to ensure energy efficiency. For short periods of time, Turbo Boost 2.0 can even enable the processor to run at a higher power level than its rated upper power limit.

Intel vPro™ Technology
A great way to save money and maintain control of your network, vPro technology enables remote network manageability including configuration, diagnosis, isolation, and repair of network computers , even if the PC is turned off or the operating system is out of commission.

vPro technology is built right into supporting Intel processors including programmable filters to help guard against viruses, malware, and other malicious threats to security, operations, and network infrastructure.

Intel Virtualization Technology
Consolidates multiple environments into a single server or PC. It provides greater user flexibility that can help reduce costs, improve security, and increase resiliency regarding contingency planning.

Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O
This VT-d technology takes VT-x capability a step further by providing support for I/O device virtualization helping to improve device performance. IT managers can benefit from improved system security and reliability, reduced downtime, and better use of data center resources.

Extended Page Tables
Boosting memory for demanding virtualizaiton applications, this hardware optimization, also known as Second Level Address Translation (SLAT), helps reduce power consumption and its associated costs while also aiding battery life.

Intel 64
Take advantage of 64-bit computing when using 64-bit compatible software. This architecture enables systems to access more than 4GB of virtual and physical memory. Also known as EM64T, it is fully compatible with 32-bit operating systems giving you the flexibility to upgrade to a 64-bit OS when ever you're ready. Intel's 64 architecture works on servers, workstations, desktops, and mobile platforms.

Intel Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology
Now get even more performance enhancing, energy conserving benefits from Intel. With SpeedStep technology, your processor simultaneously switches voltage and frequency to high or low levels depending on processor load. Enhanced SpeedStep technology performs voltage and frequency changes separately so the system performs better with reduced latency due to system unavailability.

Thermal Monitoring Technologies
This feature is designed to protect the processor in the event of unusual circumstances such as cooling fan failure which can cause damage if internal chassis temperatures become higher than normal. It works by reducing the processor's power consumption if the programmed thermal temperature is exceeded.

The processor contains a thermal diode which measures the actual CPU temperature and relays its temperature and thermal requirements to the motherboard. The motherboard uses those requirements to control the processor fan and ensure it does not spin faster than necessary - even under worst case power use.

Intel IPT Identity Protection Technology
Designed to provide another layer of online security, Intel IPT  works by partnering with websites to help keep your personal information safe when you log in to your favorite IPT-enabled sites like shopping, bill paying, banking, etc. Intel IPT verifies your log-in, confirms you're using a trusted device, and protects your account from being accessed without your recognized device.

Intel SIPP
Intel's Stable Image Platform Program is designed to make the transition between technology generations more predictable. With SIPP, you wont' have to worry about changes to key platform components or drivers for an established period of time, according to Intel. This means fewer hardware changes, making your life less complicated and possibly saving you money, during the Intel SIPP time frame. Visit intel.com for more information.

Intel Small Business Advantage

A health center for after-hours data back up and maintenance tasks like OS updates and disk defragging can be performed when least disruptive. Enjoy added peace of mind from the USB port blocker so you control system access.

Intel AES-NI
Advance Encryption Standard New Instructions AES-NI, is an encryption standard used by the U.S. government since 2001 and now is commonly used in software to protect network traffic, personal data, and corporate IT infrastructure. Intel processors use AES in addition to a set of six new instructions to enable hardware to do some of the work of AES, thereby accelerating its execution by three to 10 times compared with relying solely on software.

Intel Secure Key
Intel Secure Key is a feature designed to keep your data and personal information safe by strengthening encryption capability via a digital random number generator.

Intel Software Guard Extensions
This set of CPU instructions provides applications the ability to create a secure area in which to protect data from access by other rogue software.

Intel Trusted Execution Technology
Trusted Execution Technology, or TXT, is just one of the ways Intel is working to keep your system more safe. This technology, when combined with an Intel TXT enabled operating system, uses hardware enhancements to protect your data and your privacy by defending against software-based attacks.

Execute Disable Bit
Reduces your system's exposure to viruses and mal-ware attacks, and the chances of self-executing and propagating software from taking down your system or network. That can save you costly repairs, lost productivity, and revenue.

10/100/1000 Gigabit Network
