An Intel Corei5 provides better performance against heavier and demanding applications, games and rich audio-visual data using the embedded Intel Turbo Boost Technology. The Intel Corei5 comes in variations of two to four cores, all supporting four different threads simultaneously. Its processor clock speed ranges from 1.50 GHz to up to 3.10 GHz, with cache memory from 3 to 6 MB.
The thermal design power (TDP) range goes from 84 TDP to as low as 15 TDP. Similar to Corei3, some of the latest generations of the Intel Corei5 support error correction code (ECC) memory and Intel Platform Protection Security and Intel OS Guards. These features provide embedded security abilities for protecting BIOS, enabling secure boot and prevention against attacks.
