AMD Opteron 6180 SE: 1536KB
7. PassMark result
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
Intel Core i7-5960X: 16059
8. 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.
Intel Atom Z650: 3W
9. 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.
96% have it
10. L2 core
More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
Intel Core i5-4200Y: 2.5MB/core
11. maximum memory bandwidth
This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
Intel Xeon E5504: 192.2GB/s
12. turbo clock speed
When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
Intel Core i5-7200U: 3100GHz
13. GeekBench result
This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2017)
Intel Core i7-6950X: 51251
14. Has AES
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
78% have it
15. Has an unlocked multiplier
Some processors come with an unlocked multiplier which makes them easy to overclock, allowing you to gain increased performance in games and other applications.
9% have it
16. 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.
92% have it
17. memory channels
More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
Intel Xeon Gold 5115: 6
18. Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
95% have it
19. L3 cache
A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
Intel Xeon E7-8893 v4: 60MB
20. number of transistors
A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
Intel Xeon E5-2699 v4: 7200 million
21. 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.
Intel Core i9-7920X: 44
22. PassMark result (single)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using a single thread.
Intel Core i3-7350K: 2625
23. L3 core
More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
Intel Core i9-7960X: 22MB/core
24. Has FMA4
FMA4 is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
11% have it
25. PassMark result (overclocked)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU whilst it is overclocked.
Intel Core i7-5960X: 18948
