  • The CPU has AES extension to the instruction set enabled. These instructions accelerate AES encryption and decryption, and are valuable if you need to protect your disk or network data.

i3-3217U vs i7-3517U specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important Core i7-3517U and Intel i3-3217U 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 extra threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for additional 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.
