Processors from intel are marked which defines the basic parameters of processors.
Applicable at this time the marking has been introduced since 2011 and began to be used in the second generation series processors i3, i5, i7.
The clock frequency of the nuclei depends on the type of processor and may vary to a rather large range. Also, processors have a base frequency and maximum frequency in turbo mode with Intel® Turbo Boost technology is turned on.
Explanation of designations Intel i-series processors
I7 - processor series
7 - processor generation
500 - version of the processor, the more the more technical designation possibilities.
U - features processor
