The Core i7-5600U is the most powerful CPU from the latest Broadwell CPU lineup from Intel and like all other CPUs from 5000 series, this one features the usual 64-bit architecture and 14nm FinFET manufacturing process. It’s also developed under the “U” series CPUs which sport two energy-efficient cores with HyperThreading technology for emulating one virtual core for each physical one. The CPU’s base frequency is 2.6GHz and a maximum of 3.1GHz for two active cores and 3.2GHz for one active core.
The Core i7-5600U supports dual channel DDR3L-1333/1600 or LPDDR3-1333/1600 memory up to 16GB. However, unlike most CPUs from this lineup, the Core i7-5600 has 4MB cache, which means 128KB for level one, 512KB for level two and 4096KB for level 3. The CPU also integrates the latest intel GPU – Intel HD Graphics 5500 with 24 Execution Units, 300MHz base clock and up to 950MHz Turbo Boost, which is 50MHz higher clock rate than most CPUs from the Broadwell family. The maximum TDP of the SoC is 15W as usual, but we have a lower minimum TDP of 7.5W.
