Intel Core i5-3570K Review
The new Intel Core i5 3570K is a processor series that has 1.4 billion transistors and a 160mm2 die size. Derived from the existing Intel graphics products with nice improvements inside the processor there’s the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD.
Though entirely overhauled, enhanced and incorporated with more powerful video encoder and decoder as well the embedded graphics core is an updated model from the Sandy Bridge version. This processor is functioning with a 4-way Multi-Task Processing which runs 4 independent processing threads in one physical package. When applications demand more performance, this processor is integrated with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 which increases processor frequency up to 3.80GHz.
For better multi-tasking and threaded applications it is interesting to note that there’s also an Intel Hyper-Threading Technology which allows each core of the processor to work on two tasks at the same time which could provide unprecedented processing capability. If you want to enjoy doing everything from simple e-mailing up to having the latest 3D and HD entertainment you could relax with the Built-in Visuals’ feature of this processor that delivers a seamless visual PC experience. For faster access to your data you could have the 6MB of shared cache through Intel smart Cache by enabling dynamic and efficient allocation to the cache to match the needs of each core significantly reducing latency to frequently used data and improving performance. For extremely fast conversion of video files for portable media players or online sharing the built-in visuals suite includes Intel Quick Sync Video technology through media processing.
For visual quality and colour fidelity enhancements for stunning HD playback and immersive web browsing, this processor also includes Intel Clear Video HD Technology. If you want a proficient video and image editing that increases performance for demanding visual applications you could enjoy having the Intel Advanced Vector Extensions. For an immersive gaming on a broad range of titles this processor brings out the best of Intel HD Graphics 3000 that has a significant 3D performance. It has a dynamic graphics frequency ranges up to 1350MHz. You could also have a playback experience in full HD 1080p resolution over HDMI 1.4 with 3D. If you are looking for a fully unlocked core multiplier, power and DDR3 memory ratios that enable ultimate flexibility for overclocking, this processor is a CPU Overclocking Enabled with Intel Z77 Express Chipset.
For overclocking to boost the graphics clock speed you could enjoy having the Graphics Overclocking Enabled with Intel H77 Express Chipset which has unlocked graphics multiplier. The other good things are 2 Channels of DDR3-1600 memory with 2 DIMMS per channel that is supported by an Integrated Memory Controller. It is a support for memory based on the Intel Extreme Memory Profile (Intel XMP) specification 2 up to 2400 and some even 2800 MHz. One thing more advantageous is that there is the Chipset/Motherboard Compatibility which means that it is compatible with supported Intel 6 Series Chipsets and Series 7 chipsets.
