Benchmarks

System setup

Intel Core i3-2350M (PGA) and Celeron B820 processors were tested using different system components, that are identified by MB, RAM and VID columns in the tables below. The numbers in each of these columns correspond to one of motherboards (MB), memory configurations (RAM) or graphics adapters (VID), listed below:

MB - Motherboard(s):
1. SUPERMICRO X9SCV-Q
2. JETWAY NF9G

RAM - Memory:
1. 2 GB DUAL-CHANNEL CRUCIAL CT2KIT12864BC1339 DDR3-1333 SODIMM

Core i3-2350M (PGA) vs Celeron B820 graphics benchmarks

Graphics benchmarks depend on the type of integrated or discrete graphics adapter, and to less extent on the processor performance. Because these benchmarks are synthetic, they may not truly represent gaming performance. However, they still can be used to estimate whether one processor will perform faster or slower than another CPU in games and other 3D tasks.
