Intel Core i7 980X

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
More cores 6 vs 1 5 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 12 vs 2 10 more threads
Newer Mar, 2010 vs Jan, 2005 Release date over 5 years later
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.53 GHz vs 3.59 GHz More than 25% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
