Fifth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors — based on the Broadwell ULT architecture — give MacBook Air the power you need to finish the task at hand. Whatever the task may be. The dual-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 2.7GHz comes as standard. Or you can choose the optional dual-core Intel Core i7 processor for 2.2GHz of processing power and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.2GHz. In addition, these processors are much more power efficient, which means you’re able to do all the things you love to do on a computer for longer than ever — up to 12 hours between battery charges.1 And with the Intel HD Graphics 6000 processor, you get fast graphics performance. So when you’re trying to go up a level in your favourite game — or taking on other graphics-intensive tasks — things move more smoothly and with greater detail.
