Intel Core i3-3120M (PGA) vs Celeron 1007U

Mini Review

Intel Core i3-3120M (PGA) advantages

  • The i3-3120M processor has Hyper-Threading feature, which allows each CPU core to process two threads at once.
  • Higher operating frequency of the i3-3120M helps it to achieve better performance in most tasks.
  • AVX and F16C instructions are enabled on this processor. These extensions are not broadly supported by applications yet, but their support should improve in future apps.
  • The microprocessor works in Socket G2. The CPU can be removed from the socket without effort for replacement or upgrade.

Intel Celeron 1007U advantages

  • The Celeron 1007U is 51% more energy efficient.

i3-3120M vs 1007U specifications comparison

The graphs below show the difference between 1007U and Core i3-3120M most important characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to 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.
