Intel Core 2 Duo P7370 vs Core i5-3330

Mini Review

Intel Core 2 Duo P7370 advantages

  • Power consumption of the Core 2 Duo P7370 is lower.

Intel Core i5-3330 advantages

  • More CPU cores on the Intel Core i5-3330 help to process multiple programs or heavily multi-threaded applications.
  • Operating frequency of this microprocessor is higher than the frequency of the Intel Core 2 Duo P7370.
  • The i5-3330 processor features SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The Core i5-3330 CPU includes AES technology, that accelerates AES encryption. The instructions are valuable if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • The microprocessor supports AVX and F16C instructions, introduced in the recent past. Even though these extensions are not broadly supported by programs yet, their support should improve in future apps.
  • The processor has integrated HD 2500 graphics. This GPU can be used for casual gaming and 3D applications.

P7370 vs i5-3330 specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important characteristics of the Intel i5-3330 and Intel P7370 microprocessors. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, while lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
