Top specs and features

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
Intel Core i9-7900X

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

14nm

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 i9-7900X

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 i9-7900X

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

3.Uses hyperthreading technology
Intel Core i9-7900X

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 i9-7900X

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

5.Has AVX
Intel Core i9-7900X

AVX is used to help speed up calculations in multimedia, scientific and financial applications, as well as improving Linux RAID software performance.

6.SSE version

4.2

SSE is used to speed up multimedia tasks such as editing an image or adjusting audio volume. Each new version contains new instructions and improvements.
