Intel Core i5-3340S: 42 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

2. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.

3. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.

4. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.

5. GPU clock speed

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

6. L1 cache

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

7. L2 cache

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

8. thermal design power (TDP)

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.

9. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

10. maximum memory bandwidth

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

11. Has integrated graphics

With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

12. turbo clock speed

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.

13. DirectX version

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.

14. Uses hyperthreading technology

Many of Intel's processors use hyperthreading, which means that each core of the processor can work on two threads at once instead of most processors which work on a single thread per core. This means you can have significant performance gains in certain applications.

19. number of transistors

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.

20. L3 cache

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

21. memory channels

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.

22. PCI Express (PCIe) version

PCI Express (PCIe) is a high speed expansion card standard, that connects the computer to it's peripherals. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.

23. L3 core

More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

24. Supports hardware-assisted virtualization

It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
