Intel Core i3-3130M vs Intel Core i3-3229Y

Intel Core i3-3130M

► remove from comparison Intel 3130M

The Intel Core i3-3130M is a dual-core processor for laptops 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 2.6 GHz, Turbo Boost is not supported. As its Sandy-Bridge-based predecessors, it offers a 3 MB L3-Cache.

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 are 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 i3-3130M is slightly above a similarly clocked Sandy Bridge processor due to slight architectural improvements. As a result, overall performance should be about 10-15 % faster compared to the old i3-2370M. Thanks to their Turbo Boost, Core-i5-models like the i5-3210M are significantly faster.

The integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 offers 16 Execution Units (EUs) clocked at 650 MHz up to 1100 MHz with Turbo Boost. Therefore, the performance should be similar to the AMD Radeon HD 6620G.

Just like most other Ivy Bridge dual-cores, the i3-3130M is rated at a TDP of 35 W. Therefore, even smaller laptops can use the Core i3.

Intel Core i3-3229Y

► remove from comparison

The Intel Core i3-3229Y is an ULV-processor for ultrabooks and tablets 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 clock speed of 1.4 GHz (no Turbo Boost). As other dual core Core i3, the 3229Y offers a 3 MB L3-Cache.

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 are the first to introduce 3D transistors for increased energy efficiency when compared to similarly clocked Sandy Bridge processors. The Core i3 is compatible with dual-channel DDR3L-1600 or DDR3-1600 RAM but, unlike some of the Core i5 and Core i7 Ivy Bridge family CPUs, does not support PCI-Express 3.0.

The performance of the Core i3-3229Y is slightly above a similarly clocked Sandy Bridge processor due to slight architectural improvements. As a result, overall performance is a bit above the Core i3-2377M.

The integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 offers 16 Execution Units (EUs) clocked at 350 MHz up to 850 MHz with Turbo Boost, delivering a performance comparable with an AMD Radeon HD 6520G.

The 3229Y is rated at a TDP of 13 W including graphics card and memory controller. If necessary, the TDP can be set to an even lower value of 10 W (cTDP Down). Therefore, the CPU is suited for tablets and ultrabooks.
