Top specs and features

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
AMD FX-8370

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.

2.semiconductor size

32nm

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.

Best

AMD Ryzen 5 2500X

12nm

3.thermal design power (TDP)

125W

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.

Best

Intel Atom E3805

3W

4.number of transistors

1200 million
