More reliable and significantly faster than traditional spinning-platter hardrives, solid state drives work more like a large flash drive giving you quick access to your data. With no moving parts generating heat, solid state drives use less power and keep your system cooler which helps reduce component failure. Light weight and durable, solid state drives are often found in portable devices since they are less prone to travel damage and accidents like being dropped.
Double Data Rate, which is the DDR in DDR4, tells us something about the rate of data transfer in a given type of memory. The first number, as in DDR4, tells us the generation of the memory. DDR3 was the previous generation, DDR4 is the current generation. DDR4 offers faster data transfer rates than its predecessor. The second numeric value as inDDR4-1600- or DDR4-2666 is the speed. Memory type and speed must be matched to the requirements of your computer.
DDR4 has improved function compared with DDR3, in that it offers faster data transfer rates, It has more memory banks giving it increased capacity. It also requires less energy so it is more power efficient. The more capacity and the faster the speed, the better your memory is able to keep up with today’s multi-core processors.
DDR form factors designate what they are used for. The DIMM form factor is used in desktop systems while the SO-DIMM form factor is used for laptops and all-in-one computers because of their slim profile.
With Intel Smart Cache you benefit from increased data access because the cache is shared between the cores from a single access point and optimized by workload demand. That means your system is making maximum use of its resources, enhancing multi-threading, and reducing storage redundancy.
When combined with the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver, this Intel Optane, manages multiple storage tiers and makes sure your most frequently used data is stored on the fastest tier. This helps to speed up system responsiveness and performance. Intel Optane Memory is a non-volatile memory that requires specific hardware and software configuration.
Just as Intel has released its next generation Core i-series processors, it also has improved its Turbo Boost technology with version 2.0. Automatically activated to increase processor performance to its highest state, Turbo Boost 2.0 enables the processor frequency to dynamically increase, based on demand, until maximum frequency is reached depending on the number of active cores. In addition, Turbo Boost 2.0 uses several algorithms working together to power, current, and temperature to ensure energy efficiency. For short periods of time, Turbo Boost 2.0 can even enable the processor to run at a higher power level than its rated upper power limit.
Intel UHD Graphics 630
Based on the Coffee Lake architecture with 14nm technology, the Intel UHD 630 offers a base clock speed of 350MHz and a max clock frequency of 1150MHz. It provides a maximum of 64GB shared memory. You can incorporate up to three displays, with a maximum monitor resolution of 496 x 2304. In addition the Intel UHD Graphics 630 supports Intel Quick Sync, Intel Clear Video Technology, DirectX version 12, OpenGL version 4.5.
Intel’s hyper-threading technology means you’ll get peak performance for your multithreaded applications thanks to higher processing throughput. To put it simply, each core of the processor is capable of working on multiple tasks at the same time.
Consolidates multiple environments into a single server or PC. It provides greater user flexibility that can help reduce costs, improve security, and increase resiliency regarding contingency planning.
This VT-d technology takes VT-x capability a step further by providing support for I/O device virtualization helping to improve device performance. IT managers can benefit from improved system security and reliability, reduced downtime, and better use of data center resources.
Boosting memory for demanding virtualizaiton applications, this hardware optimization, also known as Second Level Address Translation (SLAT), helps reduce power consumption and its associated costs while also aiding battery life.
Take advantage of 64-bit computing when using 64-bit compatible software. This architecture enables systems to access more than 4GB of virtual and physical memory. Also known as EM64T, it is fully compatible with 32-bit operating systems giving you the flexibility to upgrade to a 64-bit OS when ever you’re ready. Intel’s 64 architecture works on servers, workstations, desktops, and mobile platforms.
Now get even more performance enhancing, energy conserving benefits from Intel. With SpeedStep technology, your processor simultaneously switches voltage and frequency to high or low levels depending on processor load. Enhanced SpeedStep technology performs voltage and frequency changes separately so the system performs better with reduced latency due to system unavailability.
This feature is designed to protect the processor in the event of unusual circumstances such as cooling fan failure which can cause damage if internal chassis temperatures become higher than normal. It works by reducing the processor’s power consumption if the programmed thermal temperature is exceeded.
The processor contains a thermal diode which measures the actual CPU temperature and relays its temperature and thermal requirements to the motherboard. The motherboard uses those requirements to control the processor fan and ensure it does not spin faster than necessary – even under worst case power use.
Designed to provide another layer of online security, Intel IPT works by partnering with websites to help keep your personal information safe when you log in to your favorite IPT-enabled sites like shopping, bill paying, banking, etc. Intel IPT verifies your log-in, confirms you’re using a trusted device, and protects your account from being accessed without your recognized device.
Advance Encryption Standard New Instructions AES-NI, is an encryption standard used by the U.S. government since 2001 and now is commonly used in software to protect network traffic, personal data, and corporate IT infrastructure. Intel processors use AES in addition to a set of six new instructions to enable hardware to do some of the work of AES, thereby accelerating its execution by three to 10 times compared with relying solely on software.
Intel Secure Key is a feature designed to keep your data and personal information safe by strengthening encryption capability via a digital random number generator.
This set of CPU instructions provides applications the ability to create a secure area in which to protect data from access by other rogue software.
Reduces your system’s exposure to viruses and mal-ware attacks, and the chances of self-executing and propagating software from taking down your system or network. That can save you costly repairs, lost productivity, and revenue.
OS Protection from malware, viruses, various types of malicious software attacks.
Just when you thought life couldn’t go any faster, technology changed the rules. Using more bandwidth and full-duplex capacity, the 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet will have you connecting with the Internet or your other devices faster than you can say gigabit.
Along with improvements to reliability and faster connections, Bluetooth 5.1 can now assess the direction your device signal is coming from. Using that information in addition to the proximity or distance of your signal, your device can be tracked to its precise location; super handy if your device gets lost. Of course, Bluetooth 5.1 continues to offer secure transmission for computers, mobile devices, and a host of other wireless technologies such as digital assistants, headsets, home audio equipment, and IoT devices.
