Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 3210

Report a correction
Significantly higher clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 60% higher clock speed
Much better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score 5,116 vs 654 More than 7.8x better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
More l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Significantly newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better geekbench 3 single core score 2,357 vs 493 More than 4.8x better geekbench 3 single core score
Much better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 5,138 vs 661 More than 7.8x better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Significantly higher GPU clock speed 650 MHz vs 400 MHz Around 65% higher GPU clock speed
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.26 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 65% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More number of displays supported 3 vs 2 1 more number of displays supported
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.2 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 60% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jan, 2013 vs Jul, 2012 Release date 6 months later
