General info

The base and maximum clock speed of the CPU Intel Atom Z3460, number of processing cores and threads.

CPU Cores and Base Frequency

The general performance of a CPU can easily be determined based on the number of its cores and the thread count, as well as the base frequency and Turbo frequency. The more GHz and cores a CPU has, the better. Please note that high technical specs require using a powerful cooling system and a quality chipset (check VRM on the motherboard).

CPU Cores: 2   Turbo (1 Core): 1.60 GHz
CPU Threads: 2   Turbo (2 Cores): No turbo
Hyperthreading: No   Overclocking: No

Internal Graphics

Some manufacturers complement their CPUs with graphic chips, such a solution being especially popular in laptops. The higher the clock frequency of a GPU is and the bigger its memory, the better.

GPU (Turbo): No turbo   Max. Memory: --

Hardware codec support

Here we deal with specs that are used by some CPU manufacturers. These numbers are mainly technical and can be neglected for the purpose of the comparison analysis.

h264: No
h265 8bit: No
h265 10bit: No
VP8: No
VP9: No
VC-1: No

Memory & PCIe

These are memory standards supported by CPUs. The higher such standards, the better a CPU’s performance is.

Memory type: DDR3-1066   Max. Memory: 4 GB
Memory channels: 2   ECC: No


Data encryption support

AES-NI: Yes  

Thermal Management

Tjunction max.: 90 °C   TDP up: --
TDP down: --  

Technical details

These are key parameters that will help you determine which CPU is better. Pay special attention to the release date, technological aspects of the manufacturing process (measured in nanometers), and the third-level cache (L3).

L3-Cache: 1.00 MB   Technology: 22 nm

Devices using this processor

You probably know already what devices use CPUs. These can be a desktop or a laptop.

Used in: Unknown

Geekbench 3, 64bit (Single-Core)

Geekbench 3 is the benchmark for Intel and AMD 64-bit processors. It employs a new power estimation system for a single CPU core. This software carries out the modeling of real scenarios to provide accurate results. The better the estimation, the faster your computer works.

Geekbench 3, 64bit (Multi-Core)

Geekbench 3 benchmark supports AMD and Intel multi-core processors. Being based on MAXON CINEMA 4D, it allows obtaining the real comparative CPU potential. The higher the indicator, the more powerful and fast the processor is.
