pls arrange them to top to bottom (the highest peak/top is the best)
example:
X- 1st fastest
K- 2nd fastest
QM- 3rd fastest
pls arrange them who is the best

The letters indicate features and/or properties of specific processors (note that not all processors will utilise the same number of letters in their identification). For example, K indicates an unlocked core.

For actual processor capabilities, see: Intel Processor Comparison
