Top specs and features

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
AMD Phenom II X940 Black Edition
Intel Core i7-3770

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

45nm

22nm

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

Best

AMD Ryzen 5 2500X

12nm

3.thermal design power (TDP)

45W

77W

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.

Some processors come with an unlocked multiplier which makes them easy to overclock, allowing you to gain increased performance in games and other applications.

Features

1.Uses hyperthreading technology
AMD Phenom II X940 Black Edition
Intel Core i7-3770

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
