Intel Core i7 processors deploy advanced technologies for faster, smoother, and richer PC and visual experiences with the help of quad cores achieving the processor speed of over 2.5 GHz.

Take a look at some of the significant proprietary processor technologies from Intel incorporated into the i7 processors.

Intel Hyper-Threading Technology is developed to utilize processor resources efficiently and making each processor core work on two tasks (twice the quad) at once letting your laptop experience 8-way smart and effective multitasking.
Intel Turbo Boost Technology is used to automatically boost the processor speed just when required, by adapting to the kind of task performed. This technology makes the processor cores run faster when running slower than the specification limits and the automatic boosting is done when your notebookâ??s operating system requests the highest processor performance state.
