TermDefinition
Level 3 (L3) cache L3 cache is specialized memory that works hand-in-hand with L1 and L2 cache to improve computer performance.
liquid cooling system a liquid cooling system circulates a liquid through a heat sink attached to the processor inside of the computer.
memory cache set aside as a specialized buffer storage that is continually updated; used to optimize data transfers between system elements with different characteristics
MMX (Multimedia Extensions) MMX is a technology designed to accelerate multimedia and communications applications.
multi-core processing Multicore processors deliver greater computing power through concurrency, offer greater system density, and run at lower clock speeds than uniprocessor chips.
multiplier Factor by which the bus speed or frequency is multiplied to get the CPU clock speed
multiprocessor Multiprocessing is the use of two or more central processing units (CPUs) within a single computer system.
octo Processor package that contains eight cores and supports 16 instructions at once
overclocking Overclocking is the process of making a computer or component operate faster than the clock frequency specified by the manufacturer by modifying system parameters.
PowerNow! PowerNow! is speed throttling and power saving technology of AMD's processors used in laptops.
processor frequency specifies the operating (internal) frequency of CPU's core. The higher the frequency is for a given CPU family, the faster the processor is.
quad core contains four cores
S1 state Less consumption than in S0 and greater than in the other sleep states. Processor clock is off and bus clocks are stopped.
S2 state Less consumption than in state S1 and greater than in S3. Processor is off. Bus clocks are stopped; some buses might lose power.
S3 state Less consumption than in state S2. Processor is off and some chips on the motherboard also might be off.
static RAM (SRAM) Static RAM is a type of RAM that holds its data without external refresh, for as long as power is supplied to the circuit.
stop errors A stop error occurs when Windows XP Professional stops responding. Stop error messages can be caused by hardware or software malfunctions.
thermal compound is a viscous fluid substance, originally with properties akin to grease, which increases the thermal conductivity of a thermal interface by filling microscopic air-gaps present due to the imperfectly flat and smooth surfaces of the components
triple core Triple core refers to a single computational unit that includes a single chip with three different processors
