|Processor Speed:||2.4 GHz||Processor Type:||Core i5 (I5-8279U)|
|Details:||This model is powered by a 14 nm, 64-bit "Eighth Generation" Intel Mobile Core i5 "Coffee Lake" (I5-8279U) processor which includes four independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip with 128 MB of eDRAM embedded on the processor die. Each core has a dedicated 256k level 2 cache, shares 6 MB of level 3 cache, and has an integrated memory controller (dual channel).|
This system also supports "Turbo Boost 2.0" -- which "automatically increases the speed of the active cores" to improve performance when needed (up to 4.1 GHz for this model) -- and "Hyper Threading" -- which allows the system to recognize eight total "cores" or "threads" (four real and four virtual).
Additionally, this MacBook Pro has a secondary "T2" processor for "enhanced security," which includes secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities as well as enhanced image processing.
