Front view of Intel Core i3 4130

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 4130

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 2.2 GHz Around 55% higher clock speed
Much more l3 cache 3 MB vs 0.5 MB 6x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,963 vs 684 More than 2.8x better PassMark (Single core) score
Much more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.13 MB/core 12x more l3 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.58 GHz vs 2.2 GHz Around 65% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Higher Maximum operating temperature 72 °C vs 70 °C Around 5% higher Maximum operating temperature
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.47 GHz vs 3.39 GHz Almost the same
Newer Jul, 2013 vs Oct, 2009 Release date over 3 years later
