Intel Core i3-350M (PGA988) advantages



Intel Core i3-350M (PGA988)
  • One of the distinctive features of the processor is Hyper-Threading technology, which allows this CPU to execute twice as many threads.
  • Operating frequency of the microprocessor is higher than the frequency of the Intel P7350.
  • The CPU supports hardware acceleration of virtualized applications.
  • The Core i3-350M has SSE4.2 instructions enabled.
  • The processor features on-chip HD (Nehalem) graphics. This GPU is not powerful enough to run latest games at full resolution, but it can be used for casual gaming and 3D apps.
  • The CPU uses Socket G1. The processor can be removed from the socket without trouble for replacement or upgrade.

P7350 vs i3-350M specifications comparison

The charts below show the difference between i3-350M and Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 most important characteristics. These features, as well as 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 additional threads, provided 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.
