Below, you’ll find explanations for industrial computing related terms that you may be unfamiliar with.
Describes the rate at which the processor’s transistors open and close. The processor base frequency is the operating point where TDP is defined. Frequency is typically measured in gigahertz (GHz), or billion cycles per second.
The maximum single core frequency at which the processor is capable of operating. Frequency is typically measured in gigahertz (GHz), or billion cycles per second.
An area of fast memory located on the processor. Intel® Smart Cache refers to the architecture that allows all cores to dynamically share access to the last level cache.
A hardware term that describes the number of independent central processing units in a single computing component (die or chip).
Single Board Computer
A complete computer built on a single circuit board with processor, memory, I/O, and other features of a computer.
Thermal Design Power (TDP)
Represents the average power, in watts, the processor dissipates when operating at Base Frequency with all cores active under an Intel-defined, high-complexity workload.
Or thread of execution, is a software term for the basic ordered sequence of instructions that can be passed through or processed by a single CPU core.
