Intel Core i3 3220

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
Much higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.2x higher clock speed
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better PassMark score 4,229 vs 267 More than 15.8x better PassMark score
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,764 vs 408 More than 4.2x better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.43 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.46 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
