Frequently Asked Questions
What are Performance-cores and Efficient-cores?
- Are optimized to handle single and lightly threaded performance.
- Enhance gaming and productivity workload.
- Are optimized to handle scaling highly threaded workloads.
- Minimize interruptions from background task management.
What is Intel Thread Director?
Intel Thread Director sends the right workload to the right core at the right time. It helps prioritize and manage the distribution of workloads, sending tasks to the most optimized thread. This feature is on by default and works in tandem with the operating system for intelligent workload distribution. To get the full capabilities of Intel Thread Director, pair a select 13th Gen Intel Core desktop processor with Windows 11.
