18. L3 cache

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
6MB
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X: 65.54MB

19. Supports hardware-assisted virtualization

It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
Intel Core i5-3340
95% have it

20. memory channels

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
2
Intel Atom x5-Z8350: 12.8

21. 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.
