AMD A4-3305M advantages
- The microprocessor supports 3DNow! instructions. This technology can increase performance of certain old games and software. The 3DNow! set was depreciated, and not utilized by modern applications.
Intel Core i3-2350M (PGA) advantages
- One of the distinctive features of the CPU is Hyper-Threading technology, which allows this processor to run twice as many threads.
- Base frequency of the microprocessor is higher than the frequency of the A4-3305M processor.
- The i3-2350M incorporates SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
- The Core i3-2350M supports AVX instructions, that were introduced in modern CPUs not too far ago. While these extensions are not extensively used by programs yet, their support should improve in future applications.
A4-3305M vs i3-2350M specifications comparison
The charts below compare the most important characteristics of the Core i3-2350M and AMD A4-3305M microprocessors. 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 represents the number of additional threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for extra frequency, provided by Turbo feature. 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.
