Intel Core i3-3220

Intel 3220

The Intel Core i3-3220 is a dual-core desktop processor based on the Ivy Bridge architecture. Due to Hyperthreading, the two cores can handle up to four threads in parallel, leading to better utilization of the CPU. Each core offers a base speed of 3.3 GHz with no support for Turbo Boost.

Ivy Bridge is an enhanced die shrink of the Sandy Bridge architecture with improvements on both GPU and CPU performance. The CPUs are produced in 22nm (versus 32nm Sandy Bridge CPUs) and the first to introduce 3D transistors for increased energy efficiency when compared to similarly clocked Sandy Bridge processors. Other new features are integrated PCI Express 3.0 and  DDR3(L)-1600 support.

The performance of the Core i3-3220 is slightly above a similarly clocked Sandy Bridge processor due to some architectural improvements. Compared to AMD's fastest desktop APU (A10-5800K), the Core i3-3220 offers higher performance per thread, but features less cores (2 instead of 4). However, overall performance is quite similar.

The integrated Intel HD Graphics 2500 GPU offers 6 Execution Units (EUs) clocked at 650 MHz up to 1050 MHz with Turbo Boost. The very low performance is only sufficient for some older and less demanding games.

The total power consumption of the CPU, graphics and memory controller is specified by Intel at 77 watts (TDP).
