Top specs and features

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
Intel Core i7-4960X
Intel Pentium Silver N5000

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.semiconductor size

22nm

14nm

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.

Best

AMD Ryzen 5 2500X

12nm

3.thermal design power (TDP)

130W

6W

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.

Features

1.Uses hyperthreading technology
Intel Core i7-4960X
Intel Pentium Silver N5000

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.

2.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Intel Core i7-4960X
Intel Pentium Silver N5000

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

3.Has AES
Intel Core i7-4960X
Intel Pentium Silver N5000

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

4.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Intel Core i7-4960X
Intel Pentium Silver N5000

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

5.Has Tri-Gate transistors
Intel Core i7-4960X
Intel Pentium Silver N5000

An advanced transistor technology developed by Intel that allows lower power consumption and higher speeds.

6.Has NX bit
