 Requires a compatible Intel® Core processor, enabled chipset, Intel® Rapid Storage technology software and non-SED HDD + optional 2.5” SSD flash cache module. Intel® Smart Response Technology is only available on select HP systems. Read performance levels assume that the data to be read is in the cache. Depending on system configuration, results may vary.
 Requires Windows 7 or Windows 8.
 Multi-Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. 64-bit computing on Intel® architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers, and applications enabled for Intel® 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel® 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. Intel’s numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.
 Requires both NVIDIA NVS 510 and NVS 310 graphics cards to be installed.
 Optional feature sold separately or as an add on feature.
