Processor Type Processor technology Processor also regarded as the brainchild of a computing system {as the CPU acronym literally translates} is responsible for instruction execution, core system calculations, and system efficiency. Chromebooks typically use power saving chipsets from the likes of Intel, AMD, and ARM-based units while Chromebases and Chromeboxes tend to feature higher-end systems on a chip. Intel Core Intel Celeron Rockchip Intel Celeron
Processor Speed The processor speed is the default clock speed of the chipset powering the device 2.3 GHz 2.1 GHz 1.8 GHz 1.5 GHz
Processor Boost the highest frequency the processor can reach when maxed out. Maxed out the sense of the number of processes or programs running before it hits its maximum clock speed. < 2.0 GHz upto 2.5 GHz < 2.0 GHz < 2.0 GHz
Processor Cores This refers to the stack of physical cores (multiple independent processing units) on a chipset. It's usually the more the better, but that isn't always true considering that the individual clock speed of processing cores can be a huge factor in determining the overall capability of a processor unit. Dual Core Dual Core Quad Core Dual Core
Processor Cache A CPU cache is a hardware cache used by the central processing unit (CPU) of a computer to reduce the average cost (time or energy) to access data from the main memory. A cache is a smaller, faster memory, closer to a processor core, which stores copies of the data from frequently used main memory locations. 3 MB, SmartCache 1 MB 2 MB , SmartCache
Processor Model The processor model refers to the unique identifying combination of numbers, letters or both that of a chipset as defined by the manufacturer from the factory. Intel Core i3 6100U Intel Celeron N2840 Rockchip RK3288 Intel Celeron 3965Y
Cooling This refers to the means through which the central processing unit of a computer is cooled.
