|The Intel Core i5-2540M 2.6 Ghz dual core processor has two cores that boost CPU performance and graphics when various applications and games are running simultaneously. This Intel chip is designed with an innovative feature that modifies the frequency rate when a system needs more power. Because the Intel Core i5 dual core chip processes data strategically, less energy is used while typical tools and games are operating. It also preserves energy during lengthy HD movie viewing sessions. Thanks to the SmartCache and high bus speed, scenes that have fast-paced action look great. The Intel Core i5 supports many different HD technologies and graphics cards. The 4G WiMax Wireless gives this Intel chip great mobile capabilities that help laptop users stay connected. All provisioning management tasks and upgrades are handled over the air. You have peace of mind because WiMax provides secured access to vital data. USB power optimization is compatible with the Intel chip's WiMax component; this helps a system stay on a network longer. If the equipment is constantly transported, the WiMax continues to provide good voice quality because the chip has Optimized Handover Support. If you need hardware that enhances a film shot with HD equipment, the Intel Core i5 helps. This Intel 2.6 Ghz chip makes images and graphics crisper, smoother, richer, and sharper. You instantly notice the difference because the processor modifies colors in an environment. For example, if a movie has an outdoor scene, the atmosphere has colors that are bright, bold, and vibrant. When a movie has multiple hues, the color space mapping feature by Intel mimics the color scheme. Scenes that involve a lot of action have great HD effects. In these situations, this 2.6 Ghz chip processes the data strategically to make the images stable. The Intel Core i5 2.6 Ghz dual core processor has vPro technology, which provides numerous benefits in a work environment when you're using a laptop. At a modern retail store, vPro can simplifies point-of-sale tasks for remote management employees. When used with powerful hardware, the chip processing capabilities improve operations and lower costs. Intel's Active Management Technology is the key because it helps vPro function in all locations. Setting up the remote manageable tool is simple, and all of the configuration tools are easy to use. Furthermore, vPro is compatible with Intel Authenticate Technology to offer greater security. By installing the Intel Core i5 dual core processor, your laptop's CPU runs much more efficiently. Whenever demanding software and applications are running, the chip manages the data rapidly. This Intel chip has a clock speed of 2.6 Ghz, so media and graphics files don't freeze while a lot of data is processed on your laptop. The turbo speed for the Intel Core i5 is 3.3 Ghz, so HD games run quickly. If you're shopping for a dual core processor that enhances CPU graphics and manage data in a reliable manner, this chip is worth considering. When the installation process is complete, you use the Intel 2.6 Ghz dual core chip confidently because its max TDP is 35 W.|

Easy to install
Great cpu for laptops
I purchased this cpu to boost the stock working speed of my Dell E5520 laptop and it didnt dissapoint, and with the turbo boost to 3.3ghz, that makes it even better. Easiest cpu to install because the entire backside of the laptop comes off giving you practically access to everything, which makes loving this laptop even more of a pleasure to work with.
Great deal upgrade
i5-2540M is my choice for upgrade my Sony Vaio VPC-EH 1E1E/W laptop from B940 CPU. It was easy to install the new CPU. It’s a significant improvement and performing quite fast. Running stable since day one of the upgrade and I didnt have a sigle troupble with it. No overheating or blue screens. It was more or a like to like change for a CPU with similar requirements. Recommend it to those who want to give a chance to their hardware.

old laptop upgrade.
had an old laptop that was running a pentium 940b and it was struggling. I did some research and found this cpu has 2 more threads higher ipc and clocks over 3ghz. All while staying at the same 35 watt TDP as the 940b. for me it was a 60% boost in performance and runs much cooler and quieter. very happy with my purchase. can usually count on used intel products. A+

Great upgrade for a 4 year old pentium laptop!
I upgraded my wife's 4 year old Sony VAIO laptop from a Pentium B960 this i5. Her computer is much more responsive now, her programs run smoother, and she can edit videos from our GoPro with no stuttering or freezing. This wasn't possible on the tired old pentium. Temps are much lower now, the Pentium would throttle and occasionally got so hot it would shut down the computer. Now CPU temps during a stability test only hit 70c. Great value for her upgrade, and only took 15 minutes to install. I also upgraded her memory from 4 GB of DDR 1066 to 8 GB of DDR 1333. With a tube of thermal compound, the total upgrade cost was $65. A fresh install of windows 10 and it's like she has a brand-new computer. Not bad for a $399 laptop from 2013.
