Core i5-3317U 1.7GHz Review
Core i5-3317U 1.7GHz is a power optimized middle-class CPU part of the Core i5 Series released by Intel between 2010 and 2012.
It's based on the Ivy Bridge architecture and therefore features integrated graphics called Intel HD Graphics 4000 and it's manufactured with 22 nm. Previous Sandy Bridge features are also present, such as Turbo Boost and Hyper Threading.
It's built with 2 cores and each core features 2 threads, making a total of 4.
It's optimized for low power consumption and so the performance is not enough run the most demanding games (The Witcher II for example) at the highest settings, even paired with a powerful GPU and even modern demanding games like Crysis 2 and Skyrim V might require reduced settings.

It doesn't say it here but it has a boost frequency of 2.6 GHz that you can tell it to constantly run at. This gives it a lot more power then they give credit for here. Needs to be listed somehow to show max performance output.
Also the integrated graphics aren't to bad on it. As long as you set games low enough the Intel graphics for it is enough to at least run most games. This is also of course assuming you have enough ram to pool an extra gig aside for it,

the rating for CPU's is based on benchmarks so should be accurate and take turboboost into account.
