1600MHz
AMD Ryzen 5 2500X: 2933MHz

3. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
16
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX: 64

4. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
32nm
AMD Ryzen 5 2500X: 12nm

5. L2 cache

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
2MB
Intel Xeon Phi 7235: 32MB

6. L1 cache

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
512KB
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX: 2250KB

7. Supports 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.
Intel Xeon E5-2680
96% have it

8. PassMark result

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
13562
Intel Xeon W-2195: 26470

9. thermal design power (TDP)

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.
130W
Intel Atom E3805: 3W

10. turbo clock speed

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
3.5GHz
Intel Core i5-7200U: 3100GHz

11. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
0.25MB/core
Intel Core i5-4200Y: 2.5MB/core

12. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
51.2GB/s
Intel Xeon E5504: 192.2GB/s

13. Has AES

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
Intel Xeon E5-2680
79% have it

14. L3 cache

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
20MB
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX: 64MB

15. Has dynamic frequency scaling

Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
Intel Xeon E5-2680
88% have it

16. memory channels

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
4
