AMD E1-1200 vs Intel Core i3-3240

Mini Review

AMD E1-1200 advantages

  • The processor is 67% more energy efficient than the Intel i3-3240.

Intel Core i3-3240 advantages

  • This microprocessor features Hyper-Threading feature. This technology allows each CPU core to execute two threads simultaneously.
  • The Intel i3-3240 offers higher operating frequency than the E1-1200.
  • The Core i3-3240 has SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions enabled.
  • The Intel i3-3240 processor supports AVX and F16C instructions, that appeared in modern processors not too far ago. These extensions are not widely used by programs yet, however their support should improve in future apps.
  • The microprocessor utilizes Socket 1155. The CPU can be easily removed from the socket for replacement or upgrade.

E1-1200 vs i3-3240 specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important Core i3-3240 and AMD E1-1200 characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of extra threads, offered 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.
