Processors

The central processing unit (CPU) is the portion of a computer system that carries out the instructions of a computer program, to perform the basic arithmetical, logical, and input/output operations of the system. The CPU plays a role somewhat analogous to the brain in the computer. The term has been in use in the computer industry at least since the early 1960s. The form, design and implementation of CPUs have changed dramatically since the earliest examples, but their fundamental operation remains much the same.

CPU socket
i

CPU socket

A CPU socket or CPU slot is a mechanical component that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the CPU to be replaced without soldering.
Common sockets have retention clips that apply a constant force, which must be overcome when a device is inserted. For chips with a large number of pins, either zero-insertion force (ZIF) sockets or land grid array (LGA) sockets are used instead. These designs apply a compression force once either a handle (for ZIF type) or a surface plate (LGA type) is put into place. This provides superior mechanical retention while avoiding the risk of bending pins when inserting the chip into the socket.

64-bit architecture

64-bit architecture

In computer architecture, 64-bit integers, memory addresses, or other data units are those that are at most 64 bits (8 octets) wide. Also, 64-bit CPU and ALU architectures are those that are based on registers, address buses, or data buses of that size.
The Basic advantage of a 64-bit System is, that more than 4GB RAM can be adressed.

Number of processor cores

A multi-core processor (or chip-level multiprocessor, CMP) combines two or more independent cores (normally a CPU) into a single package composed of a single integrated circuit (IC), called a die, or more dies packaged together. A dual-core processor contains two cores, and a quad-core processor contains four cores.

Max. TDP
i

Max. TDP

The thermal design power (TDP), sometimes called thermal design point, refers to the maximum amount of power the cooling system in a computer is required to dissipate. For example, a laptop's CPU cooling system may be designed for a 20 watt TDP, which means that it can dissipate up to 20 watts of heat without exceeding the maximum junction temperature for the computer chip. It can do this using an active cooling method such as a fan or any of the three passive cooling methods, convection, thermal radiation or conduction. Typically, a combination of methods is used. The TDP is typically not the most power the chip could ever draw, such as by a power virus, but rather the maximum power that it would draw when running "real applications". This ensures the computer will be able to handle essentially all applications without exceeding its thermal envelope, or requiring a cooling system for the maximum theoretical power (which would cost more but in favor of extra headroom for processing power).

L2 Cache
i

L2 Cache

A CPU cache is a cache used by the central processing unit of a computer to reduce the average time to access memory. The cache is a smaller, faster memory which stores copies of the data from the most frequently used main memory locations. As long as most memory accesses are cached memory locations, the average latency of memory accesses will be closer to the cache latency than to the latency of main memory.

When the processor needs to read from or write to a location in main memory, it first checks whether a copy of that data is in the cache. If so, the processor immediately reads from or writes to the cache, which is much faster than reading from or writing to main memory.

Most modern desktop and server CPUs have at least three independent caches: an instruction cache to speed up executable instruction fetch, a data cache to speed up data fetch and store, and a translation lookaside buffer (TLB) used to speed up virtual-to-physical address translation for both executable instructions and data. Data cache is usually organized as a hierarchy of more cache levels (L1, L2, etc.; see Multi-level caches).

Multiplier Unlocked

CPU locking is the process of permanently setting a CPU's clock multiplier. AMD CPUs are unlocked in early editions of a model and locked in later editions, but nearly all Intel CPUs are locked and recent models are very resistant to unlocking to prevent overclocking by users.

Cardboard box

Cardboard boxes are industrially prefabricated boxes, primarily used for packaging goods and materials. Specialists in industry seldom use the term cardboard because it does not denote a specific material.

SSE2

SSE2, Streaming SIMD Extensions 2, is one of the Intel SIMD (Single Instruction, Multiple Data) processor supplementary instruction sets first introduced by Intel with the initial version of the Pentium 4 in 2001. It extends the earlier SSE instruction set, and is intended to fully supplant MMX. Intel extended SSE2 to create SSE3 in 2004. SSE2 added 144 new instructions to SSE, which has 70 instructions. Rival chip-maker AMD added support for SSE2 with the introduction of their Opteron and Athlon 64 ranges of AMD64 64-bit CPUs in 2003.

AVX

Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) is an extension to the x86 instruction set architecture for microprocessors from Intel and AMD proposed by Intel in March 2008.
AVX provides new features, new instructions and a new coding scheme.
The width of the SIMD register file is increased from 128 bits to 256 bits, and renamed from XMM0–XMM15 to YMM0–YMM15. In processors with AVX support, the legacy SSE instructions (which previously operated on 128-bit XMM registers) now operate on the lower 128 bits of the YMM registers.

Edition 05/2015 - Der Zweikern-Prozessor macht im Test einen nur mangelhaften Gesamteindruck. Zwar ist ein maximaler Prozessor-Takt von 4,1 GHz in der Theorie nicht verächtlich, in der Praxis ist die Leistung jedoch kaum zufriedenstellend. Damit ist auch der Preis von rund 50 Euro zu hoch.

Sehr guter AMD Prozessor, Grafikeinheit verrichtet auch sofort ihren Dienst ohne Probleme zu machen (noch vor der installation der Treiber)

Für diesen Preis ein super Produkt, bis auf den Standard Kühler (wie ja bekanntermassen bei allen Prozessoren ;). Der Lüfter hat eine etwas unangenehme Frequenz.
Habe in allerdings in einem gedämmten Gehäuse eingebaut und dieser PC ist für meine Eltern, die sich ab solchen Sachen wenig stören, da bei Ihnen der Prozessor nie wirklich ausgelastet wird und daher der Lüfter nicht voll aufdreht.

Ich persönlich würde allerdings gleich zu Beginn einen anderen Kühler mitbestellen und dann draufpappen, damits ruhig ist :)
