The Core i5-10500 3.1 GHz Six-Core LGA 1200 Processor from Intel has a base clock speed of 3.1 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Optane Memory support, Intel vPro, Intel Boot Guard, Intel VT-d Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O, and Intel Hyper-Threading technology. With Intel Turbo Boost 2.0, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 4.5 GHz. Additionally, this processor features 6 cores with 12 threads in an LGA 1200 socket, has 12MB of cache memory, and 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes. Having 6 cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the 12 threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also supports 128GB of dual-channel 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM and utilizes 10th-generation technology.
Graphically, the Core i5-10500 uses the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset, which has a base frequency of 350 MHz and a dynamic frequency of 1.15 GHz. A thermal solution is included and protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.
