Product and Performance Information

1

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors.

2

Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more complete information visit http://www.intel.com/performance.

3

CINEBENCH* R11.5 and R15 is a benchmark from MAXON Computer that measures the performance of desktop OpenGL* 3D modeling applications.

Optimization Notice: Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (Intel® SSE2), Intel® SSE3, and Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSSE3) instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice. Notice Revision #20110804

Requires a system with Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0. Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 are only available on select Intel® processors. Consult your PC manufacturer. Performance varies depending on hardware, software, and system configuration. For more information, visit www.intel.com/content/www/uk/en/architecture-and-technology/turbo-boost/turbo-boost-max-technology.html.

Compute Intensive Application Performance. SPEC* CPU2000/2006 is a benchmark from the SPEC consortium that measures device performance and throughput using compute intensive application subtests. SPECint*_base2000/2006 measures how fast a device completes a single integer compute task. SPECint*_rate_base2000/2006 measures throughput, or how many integer compute tasks a device can accomplish in a given amount of time. OS support: Desktop Windows*, UNIX*/Linux* and Mac* OS.

Warning: Altering PC clock or memory frequency and/or voltage may (i) reduce system stability and use life of the system, memory and processor; (ii) cause the processor and other system components to fail; (iii) cause reductions in system performance; (iv) cause additional heat or other damage; and (v) affect system data integrity. Intel assumes no responsibility that the memory, included if used with altered clock frequencies and/or voltages, will be fit for any particular purpose. Check with memory manufacturer for warranty and additional details. For more information, visit http://www.intel.com/content/www/uk/en/gaming/overclocking-intel-processors.html.
