16. Has dynamic frequency scaling

Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
Intel Core i5-7400
Intel Xeon E5-2640
88% have it

17. 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.
Intel Core i5-7400
Intel Xeon E5-2640
57% have it

18. memory channels

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
