Intel Core i5-2435M is a high mid-range processor announced in the fourth quarter of 2011. It is part of the “Sandy Bridge” generation and operates at a base frequency of 2.4GHz. If a higher frequency is needed, its two cores can overclock, and if they both operate in tandem, they go to 2.7GHz. The frequency goes up to 3GHz 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 i5-2435M has been developed using a 32nm process, allowing for the integration of the Intel HD Graphics 3000 controller. It operates at a base frequency of 650MHz, while Turbo Boost can increase that to 1300MHz. Power consumption of the whole SoC (System on a Chip) is 35 watts, while its maximum operating temperature is 100C.
Intel Core i5-2435M supports TurboBoost, HyperThreading, PCI Express 2.0, up to 16GB of DDR3 1066/1333 memory and the SSE4 instruction set.
