The Intel Core i5-3470 is a quad-core processor with a base clock speed of 3.20GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of 3.60GHz. It has a DMI of 5.00 GT/s, which stands for Direct Media Interface and is the communication interface between the processor and the chipset. The processor also features an L3 cache of 6MB, which is a high-speed memory area built into the processor that stores frequently used data, allowing for faster access to this data by the processor. It also supports Intel's Hyper-Threading technology, which allows each core to handle two threads simultaneously, effectively doubling the number of cores. This can improve performance in multi-threaded applications, such as video editing, 3D rendering, and scientific simulations. The processor is compatible with the LGA1155 socket, which is a type of socket that is used to connect the processor to the motherboard. The LGA1155 socket uses 1155 land grid array contacts to connect the processor to the motherboard. It is built on the 22nm Ivy Bridge microarchitecture which is a technology that helps to improve power efficiency, reducing power consumption and heat dissipation while maintaining performance. This processor has a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 77W, meaning that it can dissipate up to 77W of heat, this will affect the cooling system that you need to use with the processor.
It also supports Intel's Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) instruction set, which is an extension to the x86 instruction set that improves performance in certain types of floating-point computations.

About New Bulk Pack Products
A step higher from Intel Core i3 processors is the Intel Core i5 processors. There is a remarkable difference between these two different processor versions in terms of cache memory and the number of cores. The clock speed varies from one model to the next and is not very far from those of core i3 processors. Core i5 processors are mostly quad cores, but you can find up to six-core processors. That high number of processors makes them better performers than core i3, which only has two processor cores.
High Performance - Perfect for AAA Games
Despite the variance in clock speeds of core i5 processors, it is still possible to play 144op games without lags. Remarkably, it is possible to go beyond the 60 frames per second with these processors. They are suitable for multitasking and handling workload-demanding applications such as video editing, virtualization, cloud computing, big data, etc. Factually, they are among the high-end processors from Intel on the market today for desktop and laptop computers.
Power Consumption and TCO Vary with Clock Speed
As you would expect, the higher the clock speed, the more power the processor consumes. A higher clock-speed also implies a high total cost of ownership. That means you have to do a trade-off when shopping for Intel i5 processors. If you do not intend to run processor-intensive applications, then you can go for cost-friendly processors that clock at 2.50GHz. The clock speed can be as high as 3.4GHz, but that means you will have to dig deeper into your pocket. Such high processor speeds are only viable if upgrading from a low-end processor with an already estimated workload.
There is a non-linear relationship between clock speed and power consumption. It is even confusing to find some Intel Core i5 processors with higher clock speeds consuming less energy than others with relatively low clock speeds. What brings the difference? The secret lies in the power management system that is being improved with every new version and model of these processors. For example, an Intel Core i5 3470 clocks at 3.2 and uses 77W of power. An Intel 2nd generation Core i5 2400 clocks at 3.1HGz but consumes 95W of power.
Integrated AI Technology
This is a common feature of most of the high-end processors from Intel. Core i5 processors are integrated with AI technology that makes your computer adapt to what you use it for. This is technology at its best. We may not say much about the AI integration into the processors. But are meant to make your computer more adaptive to regular tasks it handles.
How to Shop for Intel Core i5 Processors
Many people going to the market for new PCs are more concerned with the processors the system uses. It is not just enough to know that it is an Intel i5 processor as there are variations in the market. Picking the right processor might be so problematic, especially if you are not an IT guru.
Fortunately, ALLHDD makes it simple. Just contact us for technical support if you need help when shopping for these processors. Our technical team is available to offer you support.

What is the Manufacturer/Brand Warranty?
In general, a manufacturer's warranty service/support is a written guarantee to the buyer of a product. Its terms assure the replacement or repair of the product, if necessary, within a specified period after the purchase (2-5 years depending on the brand/manufacturer). It is typically included in the price of the product. Products are brand new and sealed and the original manufacturer box is complete with the Manufacturer's genuine warranty. For most of the brand new/retail products that come with the manual and box, exceptions may apply (i.e., Cisco, Juniper Networks).
For the server parts (i.e., Dell, HPE) to get Full coverage of the warranty server must have a full 3- 5 years warranty. However, ALLHDD.COM will cover the warranty duration if any Manufacturer doesn't support the advertised warranty and there is no refund for those.
