Features

1.Uses hyperthreading technology
AMD A8-5550M
Intel Core i7-2600K

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 A8-5550M
Intel Core i7-2600K

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 A8-5550M
Intel Core i7-2600K

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

4.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
AMD A8-5550M
Intel Core i7-2600K

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

5.Has MMX
AMD A8-5550M
Intel Core i7-2600K

MMX is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.

6.Has NX bit
AMD A8-5550M
Intel Core i7-2600K

NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
