General info

1.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.

2. smaller semiconductor size
?

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Features

1.Has dynamic frequency scaling
?

Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX
2.Has AES
?

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX
3.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
?

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

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX
4.Uses hyperthreading technology
?

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.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX
