Intel Core i3-350M (PGA988) advantages



Intel Core i3-350M (PGA988)
  • This microprocessor has Hyper-Threading feature, which doubles the number of threads that the processor can process simultaneously.
  • The Intel i3-350M features SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The microprocessor comes with integrated HD (Nehalem) GPU. This graphics replaces low-end graphics card, and thus lowers the cost of the system.
  • The processor utilizes Socket G1. The CPU can be effortlessly removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.

T9400 vs i3-350M specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important Core i3-350M and Intel T9400 characteristics. These features, together 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. 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.
