Front view of Intel Core i3 350M

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 350M

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 2.26 GHz vs 1.3 GHz Around 75% 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
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Newer Jan, 2010 vs Jun, 2005 Release date over 4 years later
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
