note:
Multicore is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications necessarily benefit from use of this technology. Performance and clock frequency vary depending on application workload and hardware and software configurations. AMD numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.
Processor speed denotes maximum performance mode; processors run at lower speeds in battery optimization mode.
