Intel’s Core i5-7300U is part of the 7th Generation Kaby Lake CPUs and it’s the direct successor of the Core i5-5300U (Broadwell) and Core i5-6300U (Skylake). It’s also based on the same architecture as the aforementioned chips with little differences that should bring a small performance increase and a bump in power consumption. Тhe new CPU is clocked at 2.6GHz and its Turbo Boost frequency is 3.5GHz opposed to the 2.4 – 3GHz clocks on the previous Core i5-6300U.
Intel Core i5-7300U is equipped with 2 physical cores, 4 threads, 3MB last level cache, and a TDP of 15W, which includes the iGPU and the dual-channel DDR4 memory controller. Speaking of the former, the chip integrates the newer generation Intel HD Graphics 620 graphics chip clocked at 300 – 1100 MHz.
