Intel Atom N2100 vs Core i3-2377M

Mini Review

Intel Atom N2100 advantages

  • The Atom N2100 CPU offers higher operating frequency than the Intel Core i3-2377M.

Intel Core i3-2377M advantages

  • More CPU cores on the i3-2377M help to tackle multiple applications or heavily multi-threaded programs.
  • The microprocessor incorporates Virtualization feature, that improves performance in virtualization tasks.
  • The CPU supports SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The Intel i3-2377M features AVX instructions, that were introduced in modern CPUs not too far ago. These extensions are not widely used by applications yet, however this should improve in future programs.

N2100 vs i3-2377M specifications comparison

The charts below show the difference between i3-2377M and Intel Atom N2100 most important characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor 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.
