i3-2350M vs i3-3227U specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important features of the i3-3227U and i3-2350M processors. These characteristics, as well as 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. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
