General info

1.Supports 64-bit
AMD FX-8350 Black Edition
Intel Core i7-4770K
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 apps.
2.semiconductor size

32nm

22nm

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
3.Thermal Design Power (TDP)

125W

84W

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.
4.PCI Express (PCIe) version

2

3

Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
5.number of transistors

1200 million

1400 million

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

40mm

37.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Performance

1.CPU speed

8 x 4GHz

4 x 3.5GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.CPU threads

8

8

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.L2 cache

8MB

1MB

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
4.L3 cache

8MB

8MB

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
5.turbo clock speed

4.2GHz

3.9GHz

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
6.L1 cache

384KB

256KB

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

Memory

1.RAM speed

1866MHz

1600MHz

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

21GB/s

25.6GB/s

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

2

2

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

5.4GT/s

5GT/s

The bus is responsible for transferring data between different components of a computer or device.
5.DDR memory version

3

3

DDR (Double Data Rate) memory is the most common type of RAM. Newer versions of DDR memory support higher maximum speeds and are more energy-efficient.

Features

1.Has AES

3.Has dynamic frequency scaling
AMD FX-8350 Black Edition
Intel Core i7-4770K
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
4.SSE version

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.
5.Has AVX
AMD FX-8350 Black Edition
