Intel Core i5 3230M

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 0.8 GHz 3.2x higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs ARM A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Much higher GPU clock speed 650 MHz vs 200 MHz 3.2x higher GPU clock speed
More l2 cache 0.5 MB vs 0.26 MB More than 95% more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Newer Jan, 2013 vs Sep, 2009 Release date over 3 years later
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
