Front view of Intel Core i3 3217U

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 3217U

Report a correction
Is hyperthreaded Yes vs No Somewhat common; Maximizes usage of each CPU core
Newer manufacturing process 22 nms vs 28 nms A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Higher clock speed 1.8 GHz vs 1.55 GHz More than 15% higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Significantly higher Maximum Operating Temperature 105 °C vs 90 °C More than 15% higher Maximum Operating Temperature

Reasons to consider the
AMD A4 5050

Report a correction
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.5 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Significantly more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Marginally newer Feb, 2014 vs Jun, 2012 Release date over 1 years later
