You could store more than 300,000 digital photos or MP3 files, or more than 180 hours of high-definition video.

Smart Cache
With Intel Smart Cache you benefit from increased data access because the cache is shared between the cores from a single access point and optimized by workload demand. That means your system is making maximum use of its resources, enhancing multi-threading, and reducing storage redundancy.

Intel HD Graphics 4000
Make the most of your 3D gaming experiences with Intel HD Graphics 4000 with Microsoft® DirectX support. Shared processor and graphics cache enables faster graphics processing and incredibly realistic on-screen action for casual and mainstream gaming.

By using a combination of hardware and software technologies, Intel has enabled enhanced high-quality, 108p high-def image rendering in a variety of media including Blu-ray and streaming web content.

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.

Intel AES-NI
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.

Intel 64
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.

Intel Anti-Theft Technology
Wouldn't it be great if your computer could disable itself if it were ever lost or stolen? Thanks to Intel anti-theft technology, it can! Anti-Theft technology works by detecting suspicious activity, like repeated unsuccessful log-ins. Once activated, anti-theft's tamper-resistant protection puts your computer into theft mode without harming your data to keep your information secure should your system fall into the the wrong hands. According to Intel, your system will be protected, "even if the OS is reimaged, the boot order is changed, a new hard-drive is installed, or the laptop is disconnected from the network." Once recovered, you can easily reactivate your system.

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.

10/100/1000 Gigabit Network
Just when you thought life couldn't go any faster, technology changed the rules. Using more bandwidth and full-duplex capacity, the 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet will have you connecting with the Internet or your other devices faster than you can say gigabit.

Multi-in-1 Digital Media Card Reader
Got your life preserved in pictures and video? You'll love the high-performance media card reader in the PowerSpec B718. Not only does it handle a variety of formats, this high-performance tool makes managing your data a snap. And, with the click of a single button, you can run your best slide shows on your monitor.
