Top specs and features

General info

1.GPU clock speed

533MHz (Imagination Technologies PowerVR SGX544 MP3)

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

Best

AMD Ryzen 7 2800H

1300MHz

2.Has integrated graphics
Samsung Exynos 5 Octa

With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

3.semiconductor size

28nm

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

Best

Apple A12X Bionic

7nm

3.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Samsung Exynos 5 Octa

Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores in order to maximise performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.

4.Uses HMP
Samsung Exynos 5 Octa

Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) is a more advanced version of big.LITTLE technology. In this setup, a processor can utilise all cores at the same time, or just a single core for low-intensity tasks. This can provide powerful performance or increased battery life respectively.

Memory

1.RAM speed

800MHz

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.

Best

AMD Ryzen 7 2800H

3200MHz

2.maximum memory bandwidth

12.8GB/s

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.

Best

AMD Ryzen 7 2800H

47.68GB/s

Features

1.bits executed at a time

3.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Samsung Exynos 5 Octa

Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.

4.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Samsung Exynos 5 Octa

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

5.Has NX bit
Samsung Exynos 5 Octa

NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.

6.Has TrustZone
Samsung Exynos 5 Octa

A technology integrated into the processor to secure the device for use with features such as mobile payments and streaming video using digital rights management (DRM).
