General info

1.thermal design power (TDP)

165W

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.

Best

AMD Radeon HD 6450

18W

2.number of transistors

5200 million

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.

Best

Asus GeForce ROG Strix RTX 2080 Gaming Advanced

136000 million

3.semiconductor size

28nm

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

Best

AMD Radeon RX 570

1nm

4.PCI Express (PCIe) version

3

PCI Express (PCIe) is a high speed expansion card standard, that connects the computer to it's peripherals. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
