Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 (Socket P) vs Core i3-2377M

Mini Review

Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 (Socket P) advantages

  • Operating frequency of the Core 2 Duo T7100 processor is higher than the frequency of the Intel i3-2377M.
  • The microprocessor is produced in a socket Socket P compatible package. Microprocessors in this package can be easily removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.

Intel Core i3-2377M advantages

  • The processor includes Hyper-Threading technology, which doubles the number of threads that the CPU can run simultaneously.
  • The Intel Core i3-2377M microprocessor features SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The CPU supports AVX instructions, that were introduced in modern processors not too far ago. These extensions are not extensively used in programs yet, but their support should improve in future applications.
  • Besides 2 CPU cores, the microprocessor incorporates HD 3000 Graphics Processing Unit. This GPU is not fast enough to play latest games at full resolution, however it can be used for casual gaming and 3D apps.
  • The processor is 51% more energy efficient than the Intel Core 2 Duo T7100.

T7100 vs i3-2377M specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important Core i3-2377M and Intel T7100 characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of extra threads, offered 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.
