Dell Inspiron 620-5031
1TB SATA hard drive
A terabyte equals one trillion bytes. To put that in perspective, that's room enough for about 250,000 MP3 files, or according to Ron White, in his book, "How Computers Work", 20,000 four-drawer filing cabinets filled with text. In addition, this hard drive operates at a variable RPM which means you've got the best of both worlds, full speed for demanding loads and energy conservation during minimal access.
Intel® HD Graphics 2000
Casual gamers will love that Intel HD Graphics offers the performance needed for mainstream games so what you see looks amazing and runs without hesitation or interruption. No more discrete graphics cards. The built-in visuals of the 2nd generation Intel Core processor eliminate the need for a discrete graphics card, reducing power consumption and system cost.
High Definition Audio Chipset
You know that moment when you que up your your favorite MP3, and when the music starts it totally surrounds your senses because it's so clear and pure? Prepare to be awed by some serious high-quality sound; like hearing your tunes for the very first time.
Intel Turbo Boost 2.0
Just as Intel has released its next generation Core i-series processors, it also has improved its Turbo Boost technology with version 2.0. Automatically activated to increase processor performance to its highest state, Turbo Boost 2.0 enables the processor frequency to dynamically increase, based on demand, until maximum frequency is reached depending on the number of active cores. In addition, Turbo Boost 2.0 uses several algorithms working together to power, current, and temperature to ensure energy efficiency. For short periods of time, Turbo Boost 2.0 can even enable the processor to run at a higher power level than its rated upper power limit.
Intel Virtualization Technology
Consolidates multiple environments into a single server or PC. It provides greater user flexibility that can help reduce costs, improve security, and increase resiliency regarding contingency planning.
Advance Encryption Standard New Instructions AES-NI, is an encryption standard used by the U.S. government since 2001 and now is commonly used in software to protect network traffic, personal data, and corporate IT infrastructure. Intel processors use AES in addition to a set of six new instructions to enable hardware to do some of the work of AES, thereby accelerating its execution by three to 10 times compared with relying solely on software.
Take advantage of 64-bit computing when using 64-bit compatible software. This architecture enables systems to access more than 4GB of virtual and physical memory. Also known as EM64T, it is fully compatible with 32-bit operating systems giving you the flexibility to upgrade to a 64-bit OS when ever you're ready. Intel's 64 architecture works on servers, workstations, desktops, and mobile platforms.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology
Now get even more performance enhancing, energy conserving benefits from Intel. With SpeedStep technology, your processor simultaneously switches voltage and frequency to high or low levels depending on processor load. Enhanced SpeedStep technology performs voltage and frequency changes separately so the system performs better with reduced latency due to system unavailability.
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
This feature is designed to protect the processor in the event of unusual circumstances such as cooling fan failure which can cause damage if internal chassis temperatures become higher than normal. It works by reducing the processor's power consumption if the programmed thermal temperature is exceeded.
The processor contains a thermal diode which measures the actual CPU temperature and relays its temperature and thermal requirements to the motherboard. The motherboard uses those requirements to control the processor fan and ensure it does not spin faster than necessary - even under worst case power use.
Intel Fast Memory Access
Intel updated its integrated memory controller hub technology to optimize available memory bandwidth and reduce latency associated with memory access, thereby improving system performance.
Intel Flex Memory Access
This Intel technology makes upgrading easier by "allowing different memory sizes to be populated and remain in dual-channel mode," according to Intel.
Execute Disable Bit
Reduces your system's exposure to viruses and mal-ware attacks, and the chances of self-executing and propagating software from taking down your system or network. That can save you costly repairs, lost productivity, and revenue.
