AMD Opteron 6180 SE: 1536KB

8. L2 cache

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
4MB
Intel Xeon Platinum 8176: 28MB

9. PassMark result

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
3724
Intel Core i7-5960X: 16059

10. 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.
100W
Intel Atom Z650: 3W

11. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
1MB/core
Intel Core i5-4200Y: 2.5MB/core

12. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
29.8GB/s
Intel Xeon E5504: 192.2GB/s

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.
