9. 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.
65W
Intel Atom E3805: 3W

10. turbo clock speed

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
3.9GHz
Intel Core i5-7200U: 3100GHz

11. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
0.5MB/core
Intel Core i5-4200Y: 2.5MB/core

12. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
43.71GB/s
Intel Xeon E5504: 192.2GB/s

13. L3 cache

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
16MB
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX: 64MB

14. memory channels

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