IntelÂ® Clear Video HD Technology, like its predecessor, IntelÂ® Clear Video Technology, is a suite of image decode and processing technologies built into the integrated processor graphics that improve video playback, delivering cleaner, sharper images, more natural, accurate, and vivid colors, and a clear and stable video picture. IntelÂ® Clear Video HD Technology adds video quality enhancements for richer color and more realistic skin tones.
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.
