Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 2120

Report a correction
Significantly higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 40% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Newer Jan, 2011 vs Jan, 2008 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
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.37 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 40% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
