Intel Core i5-4200M is a high mid-range processor announced in Q2 of 2013. It is part of the “Haswell” 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 3GHz. 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 i5-4200M has been developed using a 22nm process, allowing for the integration of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 controller. It operates at a base frequency of 400MHz, while Turbo Boost can increase that to 1150MHz. Power consumption of the whole SoC (System on a Chip) is 37 watts with a maximum operating temperature of 100C.
Intel Core i5-4200M 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.
