Intel Core i5-430M Mobile processor - CP80617004161AD
Author: gshv
Currently (March 2010), Core i5-430M is the only member of i5-4xx line of microprocessors. Main difference between this and cheaper Core i3-350M mobile processors is Turbo Boost technology feature, enabled on the i5-430M CPU, and higher graphics core frequency in graphics' Turbo Boost mode. At the same time, the i5-430M doesn't include a few advanced, primarily security and business-class features, such as Virtualization for Directed I/O (VT-d), Trusted Execution Technology and AES instructions, which can be found in i5-5xx line of microprocessors. Also, when only one core is active, the Turbo Boost feature on the i5-430M can increase core frequency by up to 266 MHz, as opposed to up 533 MHz boost for i5-5xx microprocessors.
Core i5-520E embedded CPU is in many ways similar to i5-520M microprocessor - both run at 2.4 GHz, have the same micro-architecture, size of on-chip caches and the same set of technologies. In addition to all model 520M features, the 520E has 7-year lifecycle support, and includes memory controller and PCI Express interface enhancements. The Core i5-520E can work with both ECC and non-ECC memory. PCI Express Interface on the i5-520E can be configured as one x16 PCI express port (similar to other Core i5 Mobile CPUs), or two x8 PCI Express ports. The i5-520E is offered only in 1288-ball BGA package, which is not ball-compatible with BGA1288 package used by non-embedded processors.
