i5-3330 vs i5-3550S specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important features of the Core i5-3550S and Intel i5-3330 processors. These characteristics, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Operating frequency" graph uses dark color for base frequency, whereas lighter area is for additional 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. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
