Advantages of Intel Core 2 Extreme X9100
Execute Disable Bit (allows marking some memory ranges as non-executable, thus protecting software against so-called "buffer overflow" attacks)
Enhanced SpeedStep (saves energy by managing CPU frequency and voltage in realtime. Supercedes SpeedStep)
MMX (MultiMedia Extensions - the very first (1996) SIMD instruction expansion for Intel desktop CPUs, works with 64-bit registers)
Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
TXT (Trusted Execution Technology - protects the system against viruses and rootkits residing in BIOS or in a boot sector)
Advantages of AMD E1-6010
1.2% faster in synthetic tests
Finer manufacturing process technology (28 vs 45 nm)
Less power hungry (10 vs 44 watts)
x86-64 (a general name for 64-bit extension of x86 instruction set. There are AMD64 and Intel 64 versions that differ very little)
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard instructions set - hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption. Speeds up encryption software, e.g. Veracrypt)
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
Enhanced Virus Protection (EVP)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
Enduro (saves battery charge by automatically switching between an integrated and discrete AMD GPU depending on workload. Similar to NVIDIA Optimus)
Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)
