INTEL® PENTIUM® PROCESSOR FEATURES AT A GLANCE
FEATURES
BENEFITS
Dual-Core Processing
Runs two independent processor cores in one physical package at the same
frequency.
Intel® Smart Cache
The shared cache is dynamically allocated to each processor core, based on
workload. Efficient last-level cache data usage and instant communication between
the core and memory.
Integrated Memory Controller
Offers stunning memory read/write performance through efficient prefetching
algorithms, low latency, and high memory bandwidth.
Intel® HD Graphics 530 and
Intel HD Graphics
The new Intel® Pentium® processors now offers Intel HD Graphics 530 on selected
skus with more execution units, provides an excellent graphics experience. This
new architecture delivers casual and online gaming capabilities through support of
Microsoft* DirectX* 11.1 and OpenGL* 4.x Provides Blu-ray* and HD playback with
full HW decode acceleration, sharp images, rich color, and immersive browsing.
Intel® Quick Sync Video
Intel® Quick Sync Video makes fast work of creating, editing, syncing, and sharing
your videos—at home and online. Intel® Quick Sync Video, built into the new Intel
Pentium processors, delivers breakthrough hardware acceleration that lets you
complete in minutes what used to take hours. Create DVDs or Blu-ray* discs, edit
videos, convert video files for your portable media device, and convert videos for
upload to your favorite social networking sites—all in a flash.
Intel® Virtualization Technology
(Intel® VT-x)2
Allows one hardware platform to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. Offers
improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by
isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
Intel® Designed Thermal Solution
for Boxed Processors
Includes a fan speed control to help minimize the acoustic noise levels generated
from running the fan at higher speeds for thermal performance4 and power usage.

1 This feature may not be available on all processors or computing systems. Please check with the
system vendor to determine if your system delivers this feature, or reference the system specifications
(motherboard, processor, chipset, power supply, HDD, graphics controller, memory, BIOS, drivers, virtual
machine monitor-VMM, platform software, and/or operating system) for feature compatibility. Functionality,
performance, and other benefits of this feature may vary depending on system configuration.
2 Intel® Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, enabling
software and/or operating system, device drivers, and applications designed for this feature. Performance
will vary depending on your configuration. Contact your vendor for more information.
3 Intel® Z97 and Z87 Express Chipset recommended for Intel® Pentium® Processor G3258
4 The acoustic benefits of the four-pin header are reliant on a properly designed motherboard. Contact your
board manufacturer for compatibility.
Intel technologies’ features and benefits depend on system configuration and may require enabled hardware,
software or service activation. Performance varies depending on system configuration. Check with your
system manufacturer or retailer or learn more at intel.com.
Software and workloads used in performance
tests may have been optimized for performance
