Features

1.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Intel Core i5-6440HQ

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

2.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Intel Core i5-6440HQ

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

3.Has NX bit
Intel Core i5-6440HQ

NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.

4.Has AES
Intel Core i5-6440HQ

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

5.Uses hyperthreading technology
Intel Core i5-6440HQ

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.

For example

Intel Core i5-8269U

6.Has MMX
Intel Core i5-6440HQ

MMX is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
