AMD A8-3870K: 28 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

2. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.

3. semiconductor size

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

4. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.

5. GPU clock speed

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

6. L1 cache

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

7. L2 cache

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

8. PassMark result

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.

9. thermal design power (TDP)

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.

10. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

11. Has integrated graphics

With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

12. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.

13. Supports 64-bit

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.

15. number of transistors

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.

16. memory channels

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.

17. PassMark result (single)

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using a single thread.

18. PCI Express (PCIe) version

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.

19. Supports hardware-assisted virtualization

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

20. PassMark result (overclocked)

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU whilst it is overclocked.

21. Has dynamic frequency scaling

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

23. height

24. supported displays

Using multiple displays you can create a larger work space, making it easier to work across multiple applications.

25. CPU temperature

If the CPU exceeds the maximum operating temperature then problems such as random resets can occur.
