General info

1.Supports 64-bit
AMD A6-5350M
Intel Core i7-3960X

A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit applications.

2.semiconductor size

32nm

32nm

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.

Features

1.Uses hyperthreading technology
AMD A6-5350M
Intel Core i7-3960X

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 i7-3960X

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 i7-3960X

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

4.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
AMD A6-5350M
Intel Core i7-3960X

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

5.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.
