Intel Core i5-4200M vs Mobile Pentium N3520

Mini Review

Intel Core i5-4200M advantages

  • This microprocessor comes with higher operating frequency than the Mobile Pentium N3520.
  • The Core i5-4200M supports Advanced Encryption Standard extension to the instruction set. This technology accelerates AES encryption and decryption, and is beneficial if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • The processor incorporates AVX, AVX2 and FMA3 instructions. Although these extensions are not extensively supported by programs yet, their support should improve in future applications.
  • The i5-4200M fits into Socket G3. The CPU can be easily removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.

Intel Mobile Pentium N3520 advantages

  • The Intel Mobile Pentium N3520 packs more processing cores than the i5-4200M. Large number of cores helps this microprocessor to handle multiple threads or tasks at once.
  • The Intel N3520 is 80% more energy efficient.

i5-4200M vs N3520 specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important characteristics of the N3520 and Intel i5-4200M CPUs. These features, as well as 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, offered 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. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
