Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) ACPI establishes industry-standard interfaces enabling OS-directed configuration, power management, and thermal management of mobile, desktop, and server platforms.
back-side bus (BSB) The back-side bus is where your cache memory lives
case fan A computer fan is any fan inside a computer case used for cooling purposes, and may refer to fans that draw cooler air into the case
Centrino Centrino is a technology package from Intel that provides built-in wireless support for laptop computers while making it possible to run a laptop all day (up to seven hours) without a battery recharge.
chassis air guide (CAG) The system includes an air duct for CPU, because in an environment of increasing thermal loads, the processor is generally the most demanding component in terms of system thermal design.
Cool’n’Quiet Cool 'n' Quiet! enables the CPU to monitor system loading and automatically tune CPU voltage and frequency, which results in lower temperature.
Cooler Combination cooling fan and heat sink on top of processor to keep cool
DRAM Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) is a type of random-access memory that stores each bit of data in a separate capacitor within an integrated circuit.
dual-core processing A dual core processor for a computer is a central processing unit (CPU) that has two separate cores on the same die, each with its own cache.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology is an advanced means of enabling very high performance while also meeting the power-conservation needs of mobile systems
Execute disable bit An execute disable bit is an Intel hardware-based security component used in the central processing unit (CPU) to separate areas of a memory as storage
front-side bus (FSB) A front side bus is an electrical pathway on a computer's motherboard that connects hardware to the CPU
heat sink a heat sink is a passive heat exchanger component that cools a device by dissipating heat into the surrounding air.
hyper-threading Hyper-threading performed on PC microprocessors.
hyper transport HyperTransport™ technology is a high-speed protocol for use in connecting peripherals to computers, mobile computers, servers, communication systems, network equipment, and embedded equipment.
internal bus Internal bus, also known as Internal data bus, memory bus or system bus or front-Side-Bus, connects all the internal components of a computer, such as CPU and memory, to the motherboard.
Level 1 (L1) cache Level 1 cache, often called primary cache, is a static memory integrated with processor core that is used to store information recently accessed by a processor.
Level 2 (L2) cache L2 is also commonly referred to as secondary cache or external cache. Unlike Layer 1 cache, L2 cache was located on the motherboard on earlier computers, although with newer processors it is found on the processor chip.
