General information

Information about the series and architecture of Intel Core 2 Extreme X9100, as well as the release date of processor.

Series

The processor series is marked with a number. The first digit indicates the processor generation. The following digits specify the device modification – the higher they are, the more powerful the CPU characteristics are.

Core 2 Extreme

Codename

A code name is typically chosen from the names of cities, rivers, lakes, and so on. For example, Intel traditionally gives its integrated circuit-based developments code names based on geographical names (since they cannot be registered as a trademark by anyone else): such as the names of cities, rivers, or mountains located next to Intel manufacturing facilities responsible for producing the corresponding circuit.

Supports 64-bit

The main difference between a 64-bit system and a 32-bit system is that the latter is not capable of reading more than 4 GB of RAM. This applies not only to the main RAM, but to the one installed in the computer’s video card as well.

Release date

In the majority of cases, the later the release date, the more powerful and advanced the processor.

2008-07-15

PCI Express Version

PCI Express (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express, abbreviated as PCIe or PCI-e) is a computer bus that utilizes a high-performance serial protocol. The main difference between its various versions is bandwidth capacity. The higher it is, the better.

Technical characteristics

The main technical characteristics of Intel Core 2 Extreme X9100 processor.

Number of cores

A larger number of cores means that it is possible to distributed load between them. Due to this fact, your device is less likely to be overloaded.

Number of threads

When performing tasks, an operating system defines one physical CPU core as two logical ones. As it’s commonly known, multithreading makes it possible to increase the device operating speed. Which results in fact that it can receive more simultaneous commands. Moreover, if one logical core receives a task but fails to cope with it, with the second core being inactive, then the latter helps the first one with solving the task.

Processor clock speed

In general, the higher the clock speed, the faster the processor operates. But VsRank recommends paying attention to a number of other factors as well.

L2 cache

L2 Cache (second-level cache of a processor) is slower if compared to L1, however it is larger in size. It can be from 256 kilobytes to 32 megabytes in volume. L2 cache contains data that a processor may need in future. The majority of up-to-date processors contain L1 and L2 caches directly on processor cores, with each core receiving its own cache.

Power consumption (TDP)

Thermal design power (TDP) is a value that indicates an average thermal radiation of a processor when operating under load. The higher the processor power, the higher the requirements for its cooling system.

Technological process

The smaller the technological process, which in other words means – the more perfect (more miniature) the technology, the more transistors fit in onto a chip of the same measure, which results in higher processor performance. At the same time, it reduces power consumption, as well as secures lower thermal radiation.

Advanced technologies

Support by processors of such advanced technologies as multithreading, Turbo mode, AES cryptographic algorithm, and x86 AVX command system extension.

Virtualization technology

Virtualization technologies make it possible to create multiple logical systems on a single computer – in other words, isolated virtual machines with a complete set of functions of physical devices.

Intel Core 2 Extreme X9100

Dynamic processor frequency

Turbo technology dynamically increases the processor frequency to the currently required level, using the difference between the nominal and the maximum values of the temperature and power consumption parameters, which makes it possible to increase power consumption efficiency or to “accelerate” processor should the need arise.

Multithreading

Multithreading is an ability of the central processing unit (CPU) or a single core within a multicore processor to execute multiple processes or threads simultaneously.

Availability of AES

Advanced Encryption Standard, which is also known as Rijndael – a symmetric block encryption algorithm adopted as an encryption standard by the United States government based on the results of AES competition. This algorithm has been thoroughly analyzed and is widely used now, as it was the case with its predecessor DES.

Intel Core 2 Extreme X9100
