7. L2 cache

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
1MB
Intel Xeon Platinum 8176: 28MB

8. PassMark result

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
6254
Intel Core i7-5960X: 16059

9. L1 cache

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
256KB
AMD Opteron 6180 SE: 1536KB

10. 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.
95W
Intel Atom Z650: 3W

11. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
0.25MB/core
Intel Core i5-4200Y: 2.5MB/core

12. 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.
