The Intel Core i5-2400 was a desktop processor with 4 cores, launched in January 2011. It is part of the Core i5 lineup, using the Sandy Bridge architecture with Socket 1155. Core i5-2400 has 6MB of L3 cache and operates at 3.1 GHz by default, but can boost up to 3.4 GHz, depending on the workload. Intel is making the Core i5-2400 on a 32 nm production node using 1,160 million transistors. The multiplier is locked on Core i5-2400, which limits its overclocking potential.
With a TDP of 95 W, the Core i5-2400 consumes a good deal of power, so decent cooling is needed. Intel's processor supports DDR3 memory with adual-channel interface. For communication with other components in the machine, Core i5-2400 uses a PCI-Express Gen 3 connection. This processor features the Intel HD 2000 integrated graphics solution.
Hardware virtualization is available on the Core i5-2400, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. Additionally, IOMMU virtualization (PCI passthrough) is supported, so that guest virtual machines may directly use host hardware. Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) can run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications.
