Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 3340M

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 2.7 GHz vs 1.73 GHz More than 55% higher clock speed
Significantly more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.25 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much better performance per watt 13.28 pt/W vs 0.62 pt/W More than 21.5x better performance per watt
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,696 vs 503 More than 3.2x better PassMark (Single core) score
Lower typical power consumption 28.44W vs 45.83W Around 40% lower typical power consumption
Better PassMark score 4,224 vs 323 More than 13x better PassMark score
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.25 GHz vs 2.13 GHz Around 55% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.7 GHz vs 1.73 GHz More than 55% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Lower annual home energy cost 8.43 $/year vs 13.59 $/year Around 40% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 30.66 $/year vs 49.41 $/year Around 40% lower annual commercial energy cost
