i3-3220 vs i5-3330S estimated performance

The charts in the section below demonstrate relative performance of Core i3-3220 and Core i5-3330S processors. Performance numbers for Core i3-3220 were determined based on a number of benchmarks. Results for Core i5-3330S were approximated from benchmark results of other microprocessors with similar core and microarchitecture. As a note, this approximation has greater error of margin than results obtained using real-world tests. Additionally, this is an averaged performance, and the difference in individual benchmarks may be better or worse than what you see in the charts here.

i3-3220 vs i5-3330S specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important features of the Intel Core i3-3220 and i5-3330S processors. These characteristics, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of additional threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, while lighter area is for extra 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.
