Intel Core i3-3217U advantages

  • This microprocessor offers higher base frequency than the Intel Z2760 CPU.
  • The i3-3217U processor has Intel 64 feature, that allows it to run 64-bit operating systems. 64-bit OSes usually run a bit faster than 32-bit ones, and they are not limited to 3GB or 4 GB of RAM.
  • Incorporated Virtualization technology enhances performance in virtualization tasks.
  • The Core i3-3217U includes SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The microprocessor supports AVX and F16C instructions. Even though these extensions are not broadly used by applications yet, their support should improve in future apps.
  • Besides 2 CPU cores, the Intel Core i3-3217U integrates HD 4000 GPU. This graphics replaces low-end graphics card, and thus lowers the cost of the system.

Z2760 vs i3-3217U specifications comparison

The charts below demonstrate the difference between Core i3-3217U and Z2760 most important characteristics. These features, as well as 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 corresponds to 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. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
