Intel Core i3-2348M vs Pentium 2020M

Mini Review

Intel Core i3-2348M advantages

  • The processor includes Hyper-Threading feature, which allows this CPU to execute twice as many threads.
  • In multi-threaded tasks, the processor is expected to be 6% faster.
  • The CPU supports AVX instructions. These extensions are not extensively used by programs yet, but their support should improve in future applications.

Intel Pentium 2020M advantages

  • The Ivy Bridge core, employed by the microprocessor, is more efficient. It is faster by 5% on average, or by 2% - 8% depending on application than Sandy Bridge processors when clocked the same.
  • Based on our estimates, single-threaded performance of the Pentium 2020M is better.

i3-2348M vs 2020M estimated performance

The charts in the table below show relative performance of Core i3-2348M and Pentium 2020M CPUs. Results for Pentium 2020M were determined based on a number of tests. Performance numbers for Core i3-2348M were approximated from benchmark results of other microprocessors with similar core and microarchitecture. As a note, the approximation has greater error of margin than results obtained using real-world benchmarks. Also, this is an averaged performance, and the shown results may differ from results, that you may see in individual tests.

i3-2348M vs 2020M specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important Intel i3-2348M and Pentium 2020M characteristics. These features, along 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 corresponds to the number of extra 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.
