The Intel Core i5-2540M 2.60 GHz Processor is equipped with 2 cores and 4 threads and can be installed on a FCBGA1023 or a PPGA988 socket. It delivers an improved automatic performance, thanks to its Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology. This gives system builders the freedom to set their computers the way they want by overclocking the processor's original speed of 2.60 GHz to up to 3.30 GHz. The processor has Intel HD Graphics 3000 Technology integrated into it. It also comes with Intel Clear Video HD Technology to handle high definition playback.

Intel Quick Sync Video
Delivers fast conversion of video for portable media players, online sharing and video editing and authoring
Intel InTru 3D Technology
Provides stereoscopic 3D Blu-ray playback in full 1080p resolution over HDMI 1.4 and premium audio
Intel Insider
Delivers premium HD content to an Ultrabook or PC
Intel Wireless Display
Enables wireless streaming of movies, photos, websites and more from an Ultrabook or PC to an HDTV
Intel Flexible Display Interface (Intel FDI)
Displays two independently controlled channels of integrated graphics
Intel Clear Video HD Technology
Delivers HD quality video playback
Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology
Dynamically increases the processor's frequency as needed, by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom. This allows the processor to run faster and makes it more energy efficient
Intel vPro Technology
Provides security and manageability features built into the processor aimed at addressing four critical areas of IT security:
1) Threat management, including protection from rootkits, viruses and malware
2) Identity and website access point protection
3) Confidential personal and business data protection
4) Remote and local monitoring, remediation and repair of PCs and workstations
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel HT)
Delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly-threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, thus completing tasks sooner
Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x)
Allows one hardware platform to function as multiple virtual platforms. It offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate tasks
Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)
Continues from the existing support for IA-32 (VT-x) and Itanium processor (VT-i) virtualization and adds new support for I/O-device virtualization. Intel VT-d enables you to improve security and reliability of your system as well as improve performance of I/O devices in virtualized environments
Intel Trusted Execution Technology
Enhances the digital office platform with security capabilities such as measured launch and protected execution. It provides an environment where applications can run within their own space, protected from all other software on the system
AES New Instructions
Enables fast and secure data encryption and decryption. AES-NI are valuable for a wide range of cryptographic applications, such as applications that perform bulk encryption/decryption, authentication, random number generation and authenticated encryption
Intel 64
Delivers 64-bit computing on server, workstation, desktop and mobile platforms when combined with supporting software. It improves performance by allowing systems to address more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory
Intel Anti-Theft Technology (Intel AT)
Keeps your laptop safe and secure in the event if it's lost or stolen. Intel AT requires a service subscription from an Intel AT-enabled service provider
Idle States
Saves power when the processor is idle. C0 is the operational state, meaning that the CPU is performing useful tasks. C1 is the first idle state, C2 the second and so on, where more power-saving actions are taken for numerically higher C-states
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology
Enables high performance while meeting the power conservation needs of mobile systems. Conventional Intel SpeedStep Technology switches both voltage and frequency in tandem between high and low levels in response to processor load. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology builds upon that architecture using design strategies like separation between voltage and frequency changes and clock partitioning and recovery
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
Protects the processor package and the system from thermal failure through several thermal management features. An on-die Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) detects the core's temperature. Additionally, the thermal management features reduce package power consumption and thereby temperature when required, in order to remain within normal operating limits
Execute Disable Bit
Reduces exposure to viruses and malicious code attacks. It also prevents harmful software from executing and propagating on the server or network
Intel VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT)
Provides acceleration for memory-intensive virtualized applications. Extended Page Tables in Intel Virtualization Technology platforms reduce the memory and power overhead costs while increasing battery life through hardware optimization of page table management
