|Processor Speed:||2.6 GHz||Processor Type:||Core i5 (I5-4278U)|
|Details:||This model is powered by a 22 nm, 64-bit "Fourth Generation" Intel Mobile Core i5 "Haswell" (I5-4278U) processor which includes two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip. Each core has a dedicated 256k level 2 cache, shares 3 MB of level 3 cache, and has an integrated memory controller (dual channel).
This system also supports "Turbo Boost 2.0" -- which "automatically increases the speed of the active cores" to improve performance when needed (up to 3.1 GHz for this model) -- and "Hyper Threading" -- which allows the system to recognize four total "cores" or "threads" (two real and two virtual).
