(1) Multi-Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. 64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers, and applications enabled for Intel 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. Some functionality of this technology, such as Intel Active management technology and Intel Virtualization technology, requires additional third-party software in order to run. Availability of future “virtual appliances” applications for Intel vPro technology is dependent on third-party software providers. Microsoft Windows® required.

Performance profiles: PCMark05 done with the “as shipped” defaults. Actual results may vary based on system configuration and performance will vary over time depending on software installed. Power benchmark and comparison testing performed on a similarly configured HP Compaq dc7900 SFF and HP Compaq 8200 Elite SFF. Power profiles: power measurements were done with the “as shipped” defaults. Power measurements for idle, off and sleep/standby were conducted per ENERGY STAR guidelines. Actual results may vary based on system configuration and performance will vary over time depending on software installed.
