Intel Core i5-4360U
The Intel Core i5-4360U is an ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for ultrabooks launched in Q1 2014. It is based on the Haswell architecture and is manufactured in 22nm. Due to Hyper-Threading, the two cores can handle up to four threads in parallel, leading to better utilization of the CPU. Each core offers a base speed of 1.5 GHz, but can dynamically increase clock rates with Turbo Boost up to 3.0 GHz for 1 active core or 2.7 GHz for 2 active cores.
Haswell is the successor to the Ivy Bridge architecture with improvements on both GPU and CPU performance. The CPUs are produced in 22nm and offer an optimized branch prediction as well as additional execution ports, improving performance per clock by 5 - 10 percent. Furthermore, new features like AVX2 and FMA should increase the performance in future applications.
Compared to the Core i5-4350U, the 4360U is clocked just 100 MHz higher and therefore only slightly faster. Overall, the performance is similar to the Ivy Bridge-based Core i7-3537U. Thus, the CPU has sufficient power for office and multimedia purposes as well as more demanding applications.
The integrated HD Graphics 5000 offers 40 Execution Units (EUs) clocked at 200 - 1100 MHz, making it significantly faster than the HD Graphics 4000. However, the HD 5000 is just slightly faster than the HD Graphics 4400 and comparable to a dedicated GeForce 710M.
The i5-4360U is rated at a TDP of 15 W including the graphics card, memory controller, VRMs and the integrated chipset. Therefore, the CPU is suited for small ultrabooks 11-inches or greater.
