General info

1.Supports 64-bit
Intel Xeon E5-1660

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

32nm

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

Best

AMD Ryzen 5 2500X

12nm

3.number of transistors

2270 million

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

Best

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX

9600 million

4.thermal design power (TDP)

130W

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 Xeon E5-1660

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 Xeon E5-1660

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 Xeon E5-1660

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.

4.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Intel Xeon E5-1660

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
