Top specs and features

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
Intel Core i7-4820K

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.

2.thermal design power (TDP)

130W

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.

Best

Intel Atom E3805

3W

3.Semiconductor size

22nm

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Features

1.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Intel Core i7-4820K

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 i7-4820K

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

3.Uses hyperthreading technology
Intel Core i7-4820K

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 i7-4820K

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

5.Has Tri-Gate transistors
Intel Core i7-4820K
