AMD Phenom II N970: 26 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

2. RAM speed

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

3. semiconductor size

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

4. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.

5. L2 cache

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

6. L1 cache

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

7. PassMark result

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.

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.

9. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

10. 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.
