IntelÂ® Hyper-Threading Technology (IntelÂ® HT Technology) delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner.
IntelÂ® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) continues from the existing support for IA-32 (VT-x) and ItaniumÂ® processor (VT-i) virtualization adding new support for I/O-device virtualization. Intel VT-d can help end users improve security and reliability of the systems and also improve performance of I/O devices in virtualized environments.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStepÂ® Technology is an advanced means of enabling high performance while meeting the power-conservation needs of mobile systems. Conventional Intel SpeedStepÂ® Technology switches both voltage and frequency in tandem between high and low levels in response to processor load. Enhanced Intel SpeedStepÂ® Technology builds upon that architecture using design strategies such as Separation between Voltage and Frequency Changes, and Clock Partitioning and Recovery.
