Questions and Answers

More Info

Microsoft Windows® 7 Professional
With enhanced productivity features to streamline routine tasks, it also simplifies network connections and has several security protections including automatic system and network backups. Entertainment has never  been cooler than with Windows Media Center. You can watch, pause, and record live programs, enjoy a variety of online entertainment, or take a break with your best music. Windows 7 also supports DirectX 11. Gamers will love its smoother 3D animation and realistic graphics.

2TB Hard Drive
This 2TB drive is a whole lot of real estate making it perfect for users with lots of large, graphic intensive programs. It's also a great choice if you've got large video, photo, and music libraries. Just how much space is 2TB? You could store more than 300,000 digital photos or MP3 files, or more than 180 hours of high-definition video.

Solid State Drives
This type of internal drive uses non-volatile memory that retains your stored data even when you power down your system. Similar to a traditional hard drive, solid state drives are used in desktops and laptops. This type of storage is ideal for portable devices as it has no moving parts making it more stable, especially if your computer gets bumped around during transport. Of course that means greater reliability. And, you also benefit from faster data access and solid state drives use less power.

Intel® 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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
An excellent weapon for gamers who love an innovative performance edge when mastering their armaments. The GTX 760 has a base clock of 980MHz and a boost clock of 1033MHz. It's agile, fleet, and powerful, supports 3D Vision and Surround, DirectX 11, CUDA, PhysX, and more. No wonder NVIDIA bills it as, "Serious equipment for the serious gamer."

RealTek ALC898 Audio
This is multi-channel high-def audio solution that supports DVD, HD DVD, and Blu-Ray audio, host audio from Intel Chipsets and, according to RealTek, any other HDA compatible audio controller. Features include, 10 DAC channels supporting 7.1 sound playback and two channels of concurrent independent stereo sound front panel output, Direct Sound 3D™ compatibility, and 7.12 channel multi-streaming for concurrent gaming VoIP.

Intel Turbo Boost Technology
Turbo Boost Technology increases speed as needed for demanding tasks. According to Intel, "Turbo Boost, automatically allows processor cores to run faster than the base operating frequency if it's operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits."

Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
Intel's hyper-threading technology means you'll get peak performance for your multithreaded applications thanks to higher processing throughput. To put it simply, each core of the processor is capable of working on multiple tasks at the same time.

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 Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O
This VT-d technology takes VT-x capability a step further by providing support for I/O device virtualization helping to improve device performance. IT managers can benefit from improved system security and reliability, reduced downtime, and better use of data center resources.

Extended Page Tables
Boosting memory for demanding virtualizaiton applications, this hardware optimization, also known as Second Level Address Translation (SLAT), helps reduce power consumption and its associated costs while also aiding battery life.

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 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 IPT Identity Protection Technology
Designed to provide another layer of online security, Intel IPT  works by partnering with websites to help keep your personal information safe when you log in to your favorite IPT-enabled sites like shopping, bill paying, banking, etc. Intel IPT verifies your log-in, confirms you're using a trusted device, and protects your account from being accessed without your recognized device.

Intel Smart Response Technology
The perfect resource combination providing cost-effective, high-performance data storage solution. By enabling a small capacity solid state drive to be used in conjunction with a high-capacity hard drive, Intel Smart Response Technology offers faster system startup and application access, and great gaming performance.

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.

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.

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.

Bluetooth technology is a low-energy way of networking multiple devices within a small area so they can work together smartly and efficiently to enable communication or relay information.  Bluetooth devices can communicate with each other, identify where you are, and make sure you get the information you need—even if it means rerouting it another of your bluetooth-enabled devices like your computer, your cell phone, home phone or other Bluetooth-capable device.

Internet Explorer 10
Designed to optimize your browsing experience, Microsoft's Internet Explorer 10 is up to 20 percent faster than its predecessor when it comes to loading web content. IE 10 also helps conserve your device battery, and helps protect your system from malware and other nefarious programs.
