software and overall system configuration. See www.intel.com/technology/turboboost for more information.
64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications enabled for
Intel® 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on
your hardware and software configurations. See www.intel.com/info/em64t for more information. Quad Core is designed to improve performance of
multithreaded software products and hardware-aware multitasking operating systems and may require appropriate operating system software for full benefit. Not all
customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. Intel’s numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.
Maximum memory capacities assume Windows 64-bit operating systems or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, memory above 3 GB may not all be
