Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 dynamically increases the processor frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits.
Intel Smart Cache is dynamically allocated to each processor core based on workload, which significantly reduces latency and improves performance.
Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions add hardware acceleration to AES algorithms and speeds up the execution of AES applications.Specifications

The Intel Core i5-2500K offers exceptional value and impressive Sandy Bridge–based performance, but you can (and should) do better than this CPU's integrated graphics. Buy it...
A brand-new core design enables the chips to do more at a given clock speed than their predecessors. The humble Core i3-2120 runs at a slightly slower 3.3GHz frequency than the mid-range i5-660 from Intel's older 1156 platform, but it achieved higher...
This month for review we received two very eagerly awaited processors from CPU manufacturer Intel. Since AMD, its only real competitor, hasn’t been putting up a fight in this market for about five years now, interesting developments in CPUs have been...
