Front view of Intel Core i3 330M

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 330M

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 2.13 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 50% higher clock speed
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
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
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
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Newer Jan, 2010 vs Jun, 2004 Release date over 5 years later
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.34 GHz vs 1.9 GHz Around 25% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.13 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 50% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
