Core i5-3317U 1.7GHz Review
Core i5-3317U 1.7GHz is a super energy efficient mobile processor based on the 22nm, Ivy Bridge architecture.

It offers 2 Physical Cores (4 Logical), initially clocked at 1.7GHz, which may go up to 2.6GHz and 3MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, Turbo Boost and Virtualization are activated and the processor has multiplier unlocked.

The processor integrates mildly powerful Graphics called Intel HD Graphics 4000, with 16 Execution Units, initially clocked at 350MHz and that go up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode which share the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor.
Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 17W.

It offers average performance. This means it will become a bottleneck in some demanding applications.

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.

It means windows will see it as a 4 core CPU, when it only is a 2 core CPU. this improves preformance it certain tasks :)

Oh thanks, but how complicated could the tasks be that it will need 4 cores instead of 2? Because many games to this day can't use 4 cores…
