Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 3120M

Report a correction
Significantly higher clock speed 2.5 GHz vs 1.3 GHz More than 90% higher clock speed
Is hyperthreaded Yes vs No Somewhat common; Maximizes usage of each CPU core
Significantly newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 40 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly better PassMark (Single core) score 1,313 vs 342 More than 3.8x better PassMark (Single core) score
Better 3DMark06 CPU score 3,057 vs 838.5 Around 3.8x better 3DMark06 CPU score
Higher GPU clock speed 650 MHz vs 488 MHz Around 35% higher GPU clock speed
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 6x more l3 cache per core
Slightly more l3 cache 3 MB vs 0.5 MB 6x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Better PassMark score 3,342 vs 619 Around 5.5x better PassMark score
Better geekbench (64-bit) score 4,075 vs 882 More than 4.5x better geekbench (64-bit) score
Newer Sep, 2012 vs Aug, 2011 Release date over 1 years later
Better performance per watt 12.4 pt/W vs 6.2 pt/W More than 2x better performance per watt
