Top specs and features

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
AMD Opteron 6140
Intel Core i7-2600K

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.thermal design power (TDP)

115W

95W

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.

2.Supports ECC memory
AMD Opteron 6140
Intel Core i7-2600K

Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.

Features

1.Uses hyperthreading technology
AMD Opteron 6140
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 Opteron 6140
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 Opteron 6140
Intel Core i7-2600K

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

4.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
AMD Opteron 6140
Intel Core i7-2600K

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

5.SSE version

4

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.
