Intel® Optane ™ memory is a revolutionary new type of non-volatile memory that sits between system memory and storage to accelerate system performance and responsiveness. Combined with the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology controller, it seamlessly manages multiple tiers of storage while presenting a single virtual drive to the operating system, allowing frequently used data to reside on the storage tier faster. Intel® Optane ™ memory requires specific hardware and software configuration.
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology dynamically increases processor frequency when needed by taking advantage of thermal and power upscaling so you have a boost in speed when you need it, and an increase in power efficiency when you don't.
Intel® vPro ™ Technology is a set of security and management capabilities built into the processor designed to address four fundamental areas of IT security: 1) Threat management, including protection from rootkits, viruses and malware 2) Identity and protection Access point to the website 3) Protection of confidential personal and business data 4) Remote and local monitoring, correction and repair of PCs and workstations.
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology offers two strings of processing per physical core. Applications with many threads can do more work in parallel, completing tasks earlier.
Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) enables a hardware platform to function as multiple virtual platforms. It offers better manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities on separate partitions.
Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I / O (VT-d) continues from existing support for virtualization of IA-32 (VT-x) and Itanium® processor (VT-i), adding new support for device virtualization of is. Intel VT-d can help end users to improve the security and reliability of systems and also improve the performance of I / O devices in a virtualized environment.
Intel® VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT), also known as Second Level Address Translation (SLAT), provides acceleration for memory-intensive virtualized applications. Extended Page Tables on Intel® Virtualization Technology platforms reduce additional memory and power costs, and increase battery performance by optimizing page table management hardware.
Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions - New Instructions
The Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions New Instructions (Intel® TSX-NI) are a set of instructions focused on scaling the performance of multiple threads. This technology helps make parallel operations more efficient, through improved lock control in software.
Intel® 64 architecture provides 64-bit computing on server, workstation, PC, and laptop platforms when combined with compatible software. 64 Intel 64 architecture improves performance by allowing systems to address more than 4GB of memory physical and virtual.
An instruction series refers to the basic set of commands and instructions that a microprocessor understands and can carry out. The value displayed represents which Intel instruction set this processor supports.
Instruction set extensions are additional instructions that can increase performance when performing the same operations on multiple data objects. These can include SSE (Streaming SIMD Extensions) and AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions).
Idle states (C states) are used to conserve power when the processor is idle. C0 is the operational state, which means that the CPU is working properly. C1 is the first idle state, C2 the second, etc., where more power saving actions are performed for C states with higher numerical values.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology is an advanced means of enabling very high performance while meeting the power-conserving need of portable systems. Traditional Intel SpeedStep® Technology switches voltage and frequency in tandem between high and low levels in response to processor load. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology is built on that architecture using design strategies such as separation between voltage and frequency changes, and clock partitioning and recovery.
Thermal monitor technologies protect the processor package and system from thermal failure through various thermal management functions. An Array Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) senses core temperature, and thermal management features reduce package power consumption, and therefore temperature, when required to maintain normal operating limits.
