    Features

    1.Uses hyperthreading technology
    AMD A8-4555M
    Intel Core i7-3930K
    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 A8-4555M
    Intel Core i7-3930K
    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 A8-4555M
    Intel Core i7-3930K
    Intel Core i7-3960X

    AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

    4.SSE version

    4.2

    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.
