Intel Core i5 Philippines - Optimum Performance and Reliability

The Intel Core i5 processor is the 6th generation mid-range processor from Intel, and is considered to be one of the best value when it comes to performance to price ratio. It is an incredibly versatile processor that delivers great performance on all fronts, including great graphical performance on the integrated graphics processing unit and great power efficiency so that you do not draw more power than needed.

Intel Turbo Boost Technology

The Intel Turbo Boost Technology is an automatic overclocking system that is built into Intel Core processors. What the Turbo Boost Technology simply does is to accelerate the processors clock speeds (hence the term overclocking) to increase performance throughout the system.

The Turbo Boost happens automatically when the processor detects that additional processing power is required based on the current computing workload, number of active cores, estimated power consumption, and the temperature of the processor. This ensures that you will not see any slowdowns in computing performance and experience consistent performance throughout.

Instant Wake

The Intel Core i5 line of processors are incredibly fast, and it is able to go from zero power to full performance in a flash, delivering instantaneous response when you start up your computer or wake it from sleep. Starting up applications and switching between programs also happen without a single hitch. Pair the Intel Core i5 with a Solid State Drive and you will experience unbelievably fast load times.

Intel RealSense technology

The Intel RealSense camera technology is a remarkableinnovation. There are three cameras put together that act like a single high technology camera: 1080p Full HD camera, an infrared camera, and an infrared laser projector. It enables the computer to see like a human, measuring a sense of depth and to track motion.

During your video calls your image appears sharp and clear to your friends and family. It can also track your body alone to swap out your backgrounds to one of your choice, allowing you to share special content, put your friends in the same screen, or to just protect the privacy of your background. If you are a game streamer you can use a green screen effect so that your person appears directly on the gameplay instead.
