Intel Core i3-2330M (PGA) advantages



Intel Core i3-2330M (PGA)
  • One of the distinctive features of the CPU is Hyper-Threading technology, which allows this microprocessor to process twice as many threads.
  • Operating frequency of the processor is higher than the frequency of the E-Series E-300 CPU.
  • The processor has SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions enabled.
  • The microprocessor includes AVX instructions, that were introduced in modern processors not too far ago. These extensions are not extensively used in programs yet, but their support should improve in future apps.
  • The Intel i3-2330M utilizes Socket G2. The CPU can be removed from the socket with ease for upgrade or replacement.

E-300 vs i3-2330M specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important Core i3-2330M and E-Series E-300 characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of additional threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
