Intel Core i5-3210M is a high mid-range processor announced in Q2 of 2012. It is part of the “Ivy Bridge” generation and operates at a base frequency of 2.5GHz. If a higher frequency is needed, its two cores can overclock, and if they both operate in tandem, they go to 2.9GHz. The frequency goes up to 3.1GHz for only one core.
The chip is equipped with 128KB of first level cache, 512KB of second level cache, and 3MB of third level cache. The Core i5-3210M has been developed using a 22nm process, allowing for the integration of the Intel HD Graphics 4000 controller. It operates at a base frequency of 650MHz, while Turbo Boost can increase that to 1100MHz. Power consumption of the whole SoC (System on a Chip) is 35 watts with a maximum operating temperature of 105C.
Intel Core i5-3210M supports TurboBoost (increasing the clock frequency when necessary), HyperThreading (additional virtual core for every physical one), PCI Express 3.0, up to 32GB of DDR3/L/-RS 1333/1600 memory and the SSE4 instruction set.
