IntelÂ® Turbo Boost Technology
IntelÂ® Turbo Boost Technology dynamically increases the processor's frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom to give you a burst of speed when you need it, and increased energy efficiency when you donâ€™t.
IntelÂ® vProâ„¢ Technology
IntelÂ® vProâ„¢ Technology is a set of security and manageability capabilities built into the processor aimed at addressing four critical areas of IT security:
- Threat management, including protection from rootkits, viruses, and malware
- Identity and web site access point protection
- Confidential personal and business data protection
- Remote and local monitoring, remediation, and repair of PCs and workstations
IntelÂ® Hyper-Threading Technology
IntelÂ® Hyper-Threading Technology (IntelÂ® HT Technology) delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner.
IntelÂ® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)
IntelÂ® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) allows one hardware platform to function as multiple â€œvirtualâ€ platforms. It offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
IntelÂ® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)
IntelÂ® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) continues from the existing support for IA-32 (VT-x) and ItaniumÂ® processor (VT-i) virtualization adding new support for I/O-device virtualization. Intel VT-d can help end users improve security and reliability of the systems and also improve performance of I/O devices in virtualized environments.
IntelÂ® VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT)
IntelÂ® 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 in IntelÂ® Virtualization Technology platforms reduces the memory and power overhead costs and increases battery life through hardware optimization of page table management.
IntelÂ® Trusted Execution Technology
IntelÂ® Trusted Execution Technology for safer computing is a versatile set of hardware extensions to IntelÂ® processors and chipsets that enhance the digital office platform with security capabilities such as measured launch and protected execution. It enables an environment where applications can run within their own space, protected from all other software on the system.
IntelÂ® 64 architecture delivers 64-bit computing on server, workstation, desktop and mobile platforms when combined with supporting software.Â¹ Intel 64 architecture improves performance by allowing systems to address more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory.
