Intel Core 2 Duo T9900 (BGA) vs Core i3-2350M (BGA)

Mini Review

Intel Core 2 Duo T9900 (BGA) advantages

  • The microprocessor has higher operating frequency than the i3-2350M.

Intel Core i3-2350M (BGA) advantages

  • The Intel Core i3-2350M incorporates Hyper-Threading technology. This feature allows each CPU core to process two threads simultaneously.
  • The processor supports SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The CPU has AVX instructions, that appeared in modern processors not too far ago. Even though these extensions are not widely supported by programs yet, their support should improve in future apps.
  • Besides 2 CPU cores, the microprocessor embeds HD 3000 GPU. While this graphics unit is not fast enough to run latest games with all settings on, it can be used for casual gaming and 3D applications.

T9900 vs i3-2350M specifications comparison

The charts below show the difference between Core i3-2350M and Intel T9900 most important characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents 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.
