Intel Core i7-3940XM
23 facts in comparison
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
Intel Core i7-4770R
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.
A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
AMD Ryzen 5 2500X
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
RdRand is an instruction set used for cryptography.
4 x 3GHz
2 x 1.2GHz
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX
32 x 3GHz
A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
Intel Xeon Phi 7235
A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX
More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
Intel Core i5-4200Y
Some processors come with an unlocked multiplier which makes them easy to overclock, allowing you to gain increased performance in games and other applications.
More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
Intel Atom x5-Z8350
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.
A technology integrated into the processor to secure the device for use with features such as mobile payments and streaming video using digital rights management (DRM).
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
Out-of-order execution is used in CPUs to make use of instruction cycles that would normally be wasted due to delays.
