7043
Intel Xeon W-2195: 26470

9. 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.
65W
Intel Atom E3805: 3W

10. 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.

88% have it

19. L3 cache

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
6MB
Intel Xeon E7-8893 v4: 60MB

20. Supports hardware-assisted virtualization

It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
Intel Core i5-6500
94% have it

21. memory channels

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

22. 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.
