Whether you’re crunching data or into gaming, having a desktop processor that keeps up with your needs is essential. Give your computer an upgrade with the quad-core 3.40 GHz Intel Core i5-3570 processor. This Intel desktop chip, which is part of the Ivy Bridge series of CPUs by Intel, features four cores, a sizable 6MB Smart Cache system, and a number of other features that have enough power to run your older system at higher benchmarks for performance at great value. The Intel Core i5-3570 has four cores ready to power your computer to your specifications. Multi-core technology means that your system will essentially behave as if there are two CPUs inside, which allows for parallel computing. Software applications can get more work done in parallel, which means your desktop will be completing tasks sooner. The bus speed, which measures data transfer between computer components or between computers, is 5 GT/s DMI. The 3.40 GHz processor on the Intel Core i5-3570 is speedy enough to handle most software tasks but can be turbo boosted up to 3.80 GHz for more speed with Intel’s Turbo Boost technology. That extra GHz will kick in when you need it and when your system can handle the extra thermal load, resulting in a higher GHz frequency and more computing speed. Those looking to use this processor for gaming will find that the processor has enough GHz to produce solid graphics and may be able to run some games with lower GHz requirements on higher graphics settings. The chip also comes with on-board Intel HD Graphics 2500, which run at 650 MHz for graphics power. Those using this processor for most office software applications will find the 3.40 GHz to be ample speed for word processing and spreadsheet applications. The Intel Core i5-3570 has 6MB L2 cache memory, which shares that amount of memory between each core for quick access, cutting down processing times across your system for quicker performance. The Intel Core i5-3570 supports type DDR2 RAM up to 32GB. The instruction set is 64-bit. Intel 64 architecture improves performance by allowing systems to address more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory. The socket, which provides the mechanical and electrical connections between the processor and motherboard, supports FCLGA1155, and the package size is 37.5mm by 37.5mm. The max thermal design power (TDP) of the Intel Core i5-3570 is 77W. The Intel Core i5-3570 processor also features Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology, which balances high performance with the power-conservation needs of mobile systems by switching both voltage and frequency in tandem between high and low levels in response to processor load. So you get the speed and power you need when your software requires it, and the rest of the time, your hardware will be using less power, which can reduce wear and power bills. The Intel Core i5-3570 is a top performer from Intel’s Ivy Bridge series of CPUs that can run smoothly at high speeds. The 3.40/3.80 GHz processor means you’ll be getting solid hardware from a trusted company, which will give any older piece of hardware a significant boost of speed and power.
