Features

1.Uses hyperthreading technology
AMD A6-5350M
Intel Core i3-3120M

Many of Intel's processors use hyperthreading, which means that each core of the processor can work on two threads at once instead of most processors which work on a single thread per core. This means you can have significant performance gains in certain applications.

2.Has dynamic frequency scaling
AMD A6-5350M
Intel Core i3-3120M

Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.

3.Has AES
AMD A6-5350M
Intel Core i3-3120M

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

4.SSE version

4.2

4.2

SSE is used to speed up multimedia tasks such as editing an image or adjusting audio volume. Each new version contains new instructions and improvements.

Best

Intel Core i7-9800X

4.2

5.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
AMD A6-5350M
Intel Core i3-3120M

It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.

6.Has Tri-Gate transistors
AMD A6-5350M
Intel Core i3-3120M

An advanced transistor technology developed by Intel that allows lower power consumption and higher speeds.
