2. TRANSISTORSA conductive device that manipulates electricity 3. MICROPROCESSORSCollection of transistors that function as a computers CPU 4. MULTICORE PROCESSORCollection of CPUs which is found in modern computers 5. INTELWorlds largest computer chip manufacturer 6. INTEL CORE Mid-range to high-end consumerand business microprocessors 7. FIRST GENERATIONNehalem microarchitecture technologyReleased in November 2008 8. SECOND GENERATION Sandy Bridge microarchitectureSmaller (32 v. 44) nm for circuitry 9. THIRD GENERATIONIvy Bridge- Tri-gate transistors and 22 nm technology 10. I3, I5 & 17Biggest difference is amount of L3 cache memory 11. HYPER-THREADINGAbility of core to split and do two functions 12. QUICKPATH INTERCONNECTTechnology to replace the front side bus 13. TRI-GATE TRANSISTORSIncreases surface area and performance 14. INTEL HD GRAPHICSProjects clearer imagesGraphics moved to CPU 15. TURBO BOOSTBoosts one core frequency to make faster performance 16. LAPTOPS & DESKTOPSTop companies using 3rd generation core 17. TABLETSOnly Acer & Samsung have used Intel 3rd generation core 18. MAJOR COMPETITORAdvanced Micro Devices uses similar technology to the Intel Core 19. YOUR COMPUTERUses Intel 3rd generation i5- 3210M Processor 20. CONCLUSIONIntel 3rd generation processors are still at the cutting edge
