AMD Turbo CORE Technology

Helps improve performance of CPU intensive applications by providing faster clock speeds

Instruction Capabilities

Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) increase parallelism for scientific and 3D apps using heavy floating point calculations
Floating-Point Vector Multiply-Accumulate and eXtended Operations (FMA4 & XOP) improves throughput and performance on many integer and floating point vector functions
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) increases performance on encryption apps like TrueCrypt and PCMark

AMD Balanced Smart Cache

Shared L3 cache (up to 8MB) for improved scheduling and pre-fetch capabilities
64-ways (16-ways/sub-cache)
Increased data queue sizes
Coherency for 8 cores

AMD Wide Floating Point Accelerator

Shared FP scheduler
Dual 128-bit floating point engines can team together for 256-bit AVX instructions or operate separately with each core

HyperTransport Technology

One 16-bit link at up to 5600 MT/s
Up to 8.0GB/s HyperTransport I/O bandwidth; Up to 16GB/s in HyperTransport Generation 3.0 mode
Up to 37GB/s total delivered processor-to-system bandwidth (HyperTransport bus + memory bus)

Integrated DRAM Controller with AMD Memory Optimizer Technology

A high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller
Supports up to DDR3-1866 with 1 DPC (DIMM per channel) in single memory slot motherboard designs
Supports low voltage memories of 1.35V and 1.2V
Up to 29.9GB/s memory bandwidth for DDR3
Pre-fetcher improvements
Direct communications to each core in dual-core module (APIC registers in each core)

AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) Technology with IOMMU

Silicon feature-set enhancements for improved performance, reliability, and security of existing and future virtualization environments by allowing virtualized apps direct, rapid access to their allocated memory
IOMMU (Input/Output Memory Management Unit) is an extension to AMD64 architecture to support address translation and access protection on DMA transfers
Security for user-level application and virtual machine guest OS
Address translation and access control
Device isolation
Device assignment in virtualized systems
Security and trusted boot support
Unified interrupt management

AMD PowerNow! Technology (Cool 'n' Quiet Technology)

Automatically and instantaneously adjusts performance states and features based on processor performance requirements
C6 power state for cache flush and voltage down individual cores
CC6 power state allows all cores in C6 to power even lower for quieter operation and reduced power requirements
Separate memory controller power control
I/O-based c-state interface
Works automatically without the need for drivers or BIOS enablement
Power can be switched on or off within a single clock cycle, saving energy with no impact on performance
