Intel Core i7-4960X: 45 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

6 x 3.6GHz
Intel Xeon Platinum 8180: 28 x 2.5GHz

2. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
1866MHz
Intel Xeon Gold 5122: 2670MHz

3. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
22nm
Intel Celeron J4005: 14nm

4. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
12
Intel Xeon Platinum 8176: 56

5. L2 cache

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
1.5MB
Intel Xeon Platinum 8176: 28MB

6. L1 cache

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
384KB
AMD Opteron 6180 SE: 1536KB

7. PassMark result

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
14162
Intel Core i7-5960X: 16059

8. 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.
130W
Intel Atom Z650: 3W

9. 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.

10. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
0.25MB/core
Intel Core i5-4200Y: 2.5MB/core

11. GeekBench result

This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2017)

Intel Core i7-6950X: 51251

12. Has AES

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
Intel Core i7-4960X
78% have it

13. 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 i7-4960X
57% have it

14. 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 i7-4960X
92% have it

16. Supports hardware-assisted virtualization

It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
Intel Core i7-4960X
95% have it

17. memory channels

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
4
Intel Xeon Gold 5115: 6

18. L3 cache

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
15MB
Intel Xeon E7-8893 v4: 60MB

19. number of transistors

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
1860 million
Intel Xeon E5-2699 v4: 7200 million

20. PassMark result (single)

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using a single thread.
2093
