Intel Mobile Pentium N3520 vs Pentium 2020M

Mini Review

Intel Mobile Pentium N3520 advantages

  • More CPU cores on the N3520 help to handle multiple simultaneous processes or threads.
  • The Mobile Pentium N3520 microprocessor has 79% lower power consumption than the 2020M.

Intel Pentium 2020M advantages

  • Base frequency of the Intel 2020M is higher than the frequency of the N3520 processor.
  • The microprocessor is manufactured in a socket Socket G2 compatible package. Processors in this package can be easily removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.

N3520 vs 2020M specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important 2020M and Intel Mobile Pentium N3520 characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Operating frequency" graph 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.
