General info

1.Has integrated graphics
Intel Core i5-8350U
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
2.Supports 64-bit
Intel Core i5-8350U
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 apps.
3.semiconductor size


Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
4.GPU clock speed


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


When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
6.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.


1.CPU speed

4 x 1.7GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.CPU threads


More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.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.
4.L2 cache


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


The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
6.L1 cache


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


1.RAM speed


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


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


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


The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
5.Supports ECC memory
Intel Core i5-8350U
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.
6.bus transfer rate


The bus is responsible for transferring data between different components of a computer or device.


1.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Intel Core i5-8350U
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
2.Has NX bit
Intel Core i5-8350U
NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
3.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Intel Core i5-8350U
It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
4.Has AES
Intel Core i5-8350U
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
5.Has MMX
Intel Core i5-8350U
MMX is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
6.uses multithreading
Intel Core i5-8350U
Multithreading technology (such as Intel's Hyperthreading or AMD's Simultaneous Multithreading) provides increased performance by splitting each of the processor's physical cores into virtual cores, also known as threads. This way, each core can run two instruction streams at once.




The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.


The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
