19 facts in comparison
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.
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
AMD Ryzen 5 2400GE
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.
AMD Ryzen 5 2500X
Some applications use OpenCL to utilise the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 2400G
MediaTek Helio X30
2 x 2.6 & 4 x 2.2 & 4 x 1.9GHz
4 x 2.5GHz & 4 x 1.8GHz
4 x 2.36GHz & 4 x 1.84GHz
6 x 3.2GHz
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking e-mail will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.
Some processors come with an unlocked multiplier which makes them easy to overclock, allowing you to gain increased performance in games and other applications.
This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
AMD Epyc 7601
More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
Intel Atom x5-Z8350
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
MMX is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
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.
