Intel Core i3-2350M (PGA) advantages
- Operating frequency of the microprocessor is higher than the frequency of the Core i3-3227U CPU.
- This microprocessor utilizes Socket G2, and can be effortlessly removed from it. This allows easy processor upgrade or downgrade when desired.
Intel Core i3-3227U advantages
- The i3-3227U uses more efficient Ivy Bridge core, which offers 5% on average better performance than similar clocked Sandy Bridge microprocessors.
- The Core i3-3227U incorporates F16C instructions. These extensions are not extensively used by applications yet, however their support should improve in future programs.
- The Intel Core i3-3227U processor is 51% more energy efficient.
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.
