Top specs and features

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
Intel Core i7-4960X
Nvidia Tegra K1 (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.

2.semiconductor size

22nm

28nm

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

Best

AMD Ryzen 5 2500X

12nm

3.number of transistors

1860 million

7100 million

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.

Best

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX

9600 million

4.Has integrated graphics

Memory

1.Supports ECC memory
Intel Core i7-4960X
Nvidia Tegra K1 (64-bit)

Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.

Features

1.Uses hyperthreading technology
Intel Core i7-4960X
Nvidia Tegra K1 (64-bit)

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
Nvidia Tegra K1 (64-bit)

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
Nvidia Tegra K1 (64-bit)

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

4.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Intel Core i7-4960X
Nvidia Tegra K1 (64-bit)

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

5.Has Tri-Gate transistors
Intel Core i7-4960X
Nvidia Tegra K1 (64-bit)

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

6.Has NX bit
Intel Core i7-4960X
Nvidia Tegra K1 (64-bit)

NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
