Top specs and features

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
HiSilicon Kirin 960
Intel Core i5-3230M

A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit applications.

2.GPU clock speed

900MHz

650MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

Best

Intel Core i7-4770R

1300MHz

3.Has integrated graphics

MediaTek Helio X30

2 x 2.6 & 4 x 2.2 & 4 x 1.9GHz

2.Uses big.LITTLE technology
HiSilicon Kirin 960
Intel Core i5-3230M

Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores in order to maximise performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.

Memory

1.maximum memory bandwidth

25.6GB/s

25.6GB/s

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.

Intel Core i5-3230M

NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.

5.Has TrustZone
HiSilicon Kirin 960
Intel Core i5-3230M

A technology integrated into the processor to secure the device for use with features such as mobile payments and streaming video using digital rights management (DRM).

6.Has AES
