Top specs and features

General info

1.GPU clock speed

1029MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

Best

Intel Core i7-4770R

1300MHz

2.Supports 64-bit
AMD A6-9500

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.

3.semiconductor size

28nm

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

Best

AMD Ryzen 5 2500X

12nm

4.thermal design power (TDP)

65W

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.

Best

Intel Atom E3805

3W

5.PCI Express (PCIe) version

3

PCI Express (PCIe) is a high speed expansion card standard, that connects the computer to it's peripherals. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.

Best

Intel Core i9-7920X
