Get a major boost in PC throughput with the intelligent performance of the Intel Core i5 650 processor, which automatically allocates processing power where it’s needed most. You’ll move faster when creating HD video, composing digital music, editing photos, and playing the coolest PC games. With the new Intel Core i5 655K processor, you can multitask with ease and be more productive than ever.
The Intel Turbo Boost Technology dynamically increases the processor’s frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits. Get more performance automatically, when you need it the most. An integrated memory controller offers stunning memory read/write performance through efficient prefetching algorithms, lower latency, and higher memory bandwidth making the Intel Core i5 processor ideal for data intensive applications.
Intel HD Boost includes the full SSE4 instruction set, significantly improving a broad range of multimedia and compute-intensive applications. An Intel HD Graphics core built onto the chip eliminates the need for a separate video card or a chipset based graphics processor. The 128-bit SSE instructions are issued at a throughput rate of one per clock cycle, allowing a new level of processing efficiency with SSE4-optimized applications.
