Front view of Intel Core i3 3217U

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 3217U

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 1.8 GHz vs 0.67 GHz Around 2.8x higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
More l2 cache 0.5 MB vs 0.25 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 1.8 GHz vs 1.01 GHz Around 80% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Higher Maximum operating temperature 105 °C vs 95 °C More than 10% higher Maximum operating temperature
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 1.8 GHz vs 0.67 GHz Around 2.8x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
