|Refers to the internal structure of the CPU, including the data types, instruction set, and memory access.
|The speed at which the CPU process instructions, measured in GHz.
|Individual processing units within the CPU. Each core can process its own program thread simultaneously.
|Virtual cores created through a process called hyper-threading to handle multiple tasks in parallel.
|A small amount of very fast memory used to store frequently accessed data close to the CPU.
|Measures how much power the CPU needs, important for power supply considerations and thermal management.
|The physical interface for the motherboard. Different CPUs require different socket types.
|This refers to the size of the transistors in the chip, usually measured in nanometers(nm). Smaller nm CPUs are generally more power efficient and faster.
