Top specs and features

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
Intel Core i9-7980XE

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

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

Best

AMD Ryzen 5 2500X

12nm

3.thermal design power (TDP)

165W

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

4.PCI Express (PCIe) version

3

PCI Express (PCIe) is a high speed expansion card standard, that connects the computer to it's peripherals. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.

Features

1.Uses hyperthreading technology
Intel Core i9-7980XE

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 i9-7980XE

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 i9-7980XE

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

4.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Intel Core i9-7980XE

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

5.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.

Best

Intel Core i3-9350KF

4.2

6.Has NX bit
Intel Core i9-7980XE

NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
