Written by: tanmay190 - 06:07 Apr-23-2013

Hello guys,

i was surfing through few names of processer seen different processer 

for eg core i7 3770K,core i7 3770S etc 

so at first moment i was confused what was these K ,S ,T..etc stood for 

so searching more i got what they mean 

so i thought of sharing that knowledge

Standard abbrevations used by intel in there processors

These are used in desktops

K - Unlocked  (these are overclockable processors adjustable CPU multiplier up to 63 bins)

S - Performance-optimized lifestyle (low power with 65W TDP)

T - Power-optimized lifestyle  (ultra low power with 35-45W TDP)

P - No on-die video chipset

R - BGA packaging / High performance GPU (currently HD 5200 (GT3e)){Haswell series}

These are used in laptops

M - Mobile processor

Q - Quad-core

U - Ultra-low power

X - 'Extreme'

Y - Extreme-ultra low power

H - High performance GPU (currently HD 5200 (GT3e))

This is used in servers

L - Low power

These are the ones which i found out any mistakes please tell if i missed anything u know please tell
