As the first level of Intel’s Sandy Bridge processor family with the visuals you want built-in, the 2nd generation Intel Core i3 processor offers a fast, responsive, and visually immersive PC experience available to everyone. With the 2nd generation Intel Core i3 processor, you get built-in visuals that offer a rich and exciting set of capabilities for a stunning and seamless visual PC experience with no additional hardware required. Also featured is Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, which enables each processor core to work on two tasks at the same time, giving you smart multitasking performance to move between applications quickly and without hesitation. This is where to start for visibly smart performance.

  • newegg Fully integrated Microarchitecture on 32nm Process The Intel microarchitecture codename Sandy Bridge is an incredible leap in processor integration and manufacturing introduced in the 2nd generation Intel Core processor family. Manufactured entirely on Intel 32nm process technology, Sandy Bridge unifies processor cores, memory controller, last-level cache (LLC), and graphics and media processing. Such tight integration enables a host of performance and efficiency improvements, including fast access by cores and graphics to shared data in the last-level cache to accelerate graphics processing, fewer buses over which data and signaling must travel for faster processing, and more memory bandwidth for the cores to boost system performance.
  • newegg Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Intel Hyper-Threading Technology delivers thread-level parallelism on each processor resulting in more efficient use of processor resources—higher processing throughput—and improved performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow.
  • newegg Intel Smart Cache Intel Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Built-in Visuals The 2nd generation Intel Core processors integrate a suite of technologies built right into the processor that deliver stunning visual experiences. Intel Quick Sync Video is breakthrough hardware acceleration that makes fast work of creating, editing, synchronizing, and sharing your videos at home and on the internet. Built-in Intel HD Graphics enables superior mainstream gaming and 3D experiences – without the need for a discrete graphics card. Enjoy stunning visual quality and color fidelity for spectacular HD playback and immersive web browsing with Intel Clear Video HD Technology, plus the ultimate 3D visual experiences seamlessly from your PC with Intel InTru 3D Technology.
  • newegg Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX) Intel AVX is a new 256 bit instruction set extension to SSE and is designed for applications that are Floating Point (FP) intensive. Intel AVX improves performance due to wider vectors, new extensible syntax, and rich functionality. This results in better management of data and general purpose applications like image, audio/video processing, scientific simulations, financial analytics and 3D modeling and analysis.
  • newegg Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x) Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC. By abstracting the software away from the underlying hardware, a world of new usage models opens up that reduce costs, increase management efficiency, strengthen security, while making your computing infrastructure more resilient in the event of a disaster.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for the Office

Pros: Perfect for an office build. Is now running a friend's business computer and it doesn't skip a beat. Runs quickbooks and ms office nice and smooth. Integrated graphics have no problem keeping up with HD video. I would consider buying this in bulk. Stock heatsink does its job well.

Cons: Absolutely none.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU!

Pros: This is a sturdy little CPU. Paired with an ASUS P8H77-I and a Mini-ITX case this would do for the perfect datacenter or mediacenter.

Cons: Didn't come with money.

5 out of 5 eggsWell, mom likes it

Pros: Cost-effective, mom-approved. Used for a web-surfing, tax-filing, picture-viewing, pint-sized powerhouse.

Runs cool, runs smooth.

Came with a free SSD. Can't argue with that logic.

Cons: ...You're kidding, right? It's almost impossible to go wrong with Intel.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace my mom's old computer for her birthday. That one had XP on it (because I was wise enough to avoid Vista altogether).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat processor

Pros: This is my third time using this processor for a PC build. I would recommend this processor to anyone. Stock CPU cooler works well. Handles most games with ease.

Cons: The wiring on the stock cooler , it would be nice if it were just one wire.

1 out of 5 eggschose wrong one

Pros: nothing special

Cons: there's nothing wrong with this processor but i just got one with defect, which causes my computer freezing randomly. i tried running my computer with other cpu it works perfect.

Other Thoughts: it took me 1 yr to find out what causes freezing, i even tried to run it with different motherboard, ram, graphic card, just to figure out what causes the problem and didn't expect cpu is the one.
