Intel Core i5-4250U is a low-voltage, integrated (soldered onto the motherboard), low-range processor announced in Q3 of 2013. It is part of the “Haswell” generation and operates at a base frequency of 1.3GHz. If a higher frequency is needed, its two cores can overclock, and if they both operate in tandem, they go to 2.3GHz. The frequency goes up to 2.6GHz 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 Intel Core i5-4250U has been developed using a 22nm process, allowing for the integration of the Intel HD Graphics 5000 controller. It includes 40 EUs, operating at a base frequency of 200MHz, while Turbo Boost can increase that to 1000MHz. Power consumption of the whole SoC (System on a Chip) is 15 watts with a maximum operating temperature of 100C.
Intel Core i5-4250U supports TurboBoost, HyperThreading (additional virtual core for every physical one), PCI Express 3.0, up to 16GB of DDR3L 1333/1600, LPDDR3 1333/1600, AVX2.0 and the SSE4 instruction set.
