Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 (Socket P) vs Core i3-2312M

Mini Review

Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 (Socket P) advantages

  • The Core 2 Duo T7700 comes with higher operating frequency than the Intel i3-2312M processor.

Intel Core i3-2312M advantages

  • This CPU features Hyper-Threading technology, which allows this processor to run twice as many threads.
  • The Core i3-2312M has SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The microprocessor supports AVX instructions. These extensions are not widely used in applications yet, but their support should improve in future programs.
  • The Core i3-2312M processor features integrated HD 3000 GPU. This graphics replaces low-end graphics card, and thus lowers the cost of the system.

T7700 vs i3-2312M specifications comparison

The charts below demonstrate the difference between i3-2312M and Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 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. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
