Intel Corporation is the world's largest manufacturer of semiconductor circuits. Its success and innovation bear fruit in the form of a new generation of CPU architecture – Intel Haswell.
The fourth generation of Core processors represents an evolutionary step named Tock. Unlike Tick (Ivy Bridge), it does not bring only minor changes along with enhancements of the production process, but very significant innovations in the entire core design. The processor gets the Haswell New Instruction set and the Iris chip ushers in a new era of GPUs.
Haswell relies on revolutionary 3D transistors and utilizes the highly advanced 22nm production technology. The current technology hit its imaginary ceiling, but using 3D transistors leads to more than a 10% performance boost. Advanced Power Saving mode ensures significantly lower power consumption and environmentally friendly operation.
The Intel Pentium G3460 Dual-Core is clocked at 3.5 GHz and uses the new 1150 socket. The processor is perfectly complemented by Intel HD Graphics with an increased frequency of a nice 1100 MHz. Thanks to the performance increase of up to 100%, it leaves older chips far behind.
Intel Pentium provides enough performance for all office applications, HD movies, or music and photo editing. Compared to a higher-tier models, it does not offer multi-threaded processing (Hyper-Threading) or dynamic core overclocking (Turbo Boost), but still offers enough performance for casual gaming.
Intel Corporation is the world's largest manufacturer of semiconductor circuits and related components, powering a large share of the world's computers, devices, and machines with their powerful and reliable processors. One of the most established and successful companies to come out of Silicon Valley, they've been a driver of the technology revolution ever since.
Intel employs over 96,500 employees worldwide and is one of the biggest and richest companies in the world. For decades, their slogan was "Intel Inside"; however, they replaced with the more dynamic "Leap ahead" in 2005, signalling a renewed commitment to innovation.
