|Intel Core i5-7300U|
The Intel Core i5-7300U is an ultra low voltage dual core SOC designed for notebook PCs. This SOC is based from Kaby Lake architecture available in early 2017. This SOC features level 1 cache of 128 kB, level 2 cache of 512 kB, 3 MB level 3 cache.
This SoC runs at the base clock speed of 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost technology to speed up processing up to 3.5 GHz. This also features Hyper Threading technology to process up to 4 threads at once. It is mass-produced using 14nm process with FinFET transistors, which further improve the efficiency. Intel specifies the TDP with 15 Watts, but it can also be reduced to 7.5 Watts by the notebook manufacturers (cTDP down).
It has an integrated graphics controller called Intel HD Graphics 620 which has 24 Execution Units that runs at 300 - 1100 MHz. The performance depends a lot on the memory configuration of the device. This is comparable to a dedicated Nvidia GeForce 920M in combination with fast DDR4-2133 dual-channel memory.
Other features of Intel Core i5-7300U include Dual-Channel DDR4 Memory Controller, HyperThreading, AVX, AVX2, Quick Sync, Virtualization, AES-NI. It was announced last January 3, 2017 at about $281.
