Features

1.Uses hyperthreading technology
Intel Core i3-2125

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
Intel Core i3-2125

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

3.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Intel Core i3-2125

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

4.SSE version

4.2

SSE is used to speed up multimedia tasks such as editing an image or adjusting audio volume. Each new version contains new instructions and improvements.

Best

Intel Core i3-9350KF

4.2

5.Has NX bit
Intel Core i3-2125

NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.

6.Has AVX
Intel Core i3-2125

AVX is used to help speed up calculations in multimedia, scientific and financial applications, as well as improving Linux RAID software performance.
