Features

1.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Intel Core i7-2600
Intel Core i7-3770

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

2.Has AES
Intel Core i7-2600
Intel Core i7-3770

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

3.Uses hyperthreading technology
Intel Core i7-2600
Intel Core i7-3770

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.

4.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Intel Core i7-2600
Intel Core i7-3770

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