Core i3-2120


Description
The Core i3-2120 is a cpu manufactured by Intel released on February 2012. This model is based on Sandy Bridge architecture which codename was originally Gesher. The development began in 2005 and four years later, the first Sandy Bridge CPU was presented. The most prominent features are Intel Turbo Boost 2.0, AES encryption and SHA-1 hashing acceleration, Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 256-bit instruction set and the ability to have up to 8 physical cores or 16 logical cores through Hyper-Threading.

This model runs at 3300 MHz as base frequency with a thermal design power of 65 W. About its cache memory, this CPU has 32+32 kB level 1 cache, 256kB of level 2 cache and 3072kB of level 3 cache.

The performance score in monothread tasks in mode 0 (non-optimized software) of the Core i3-2120 is 17236 while its multithread score in the same mode is 37782 points. If we talk about optimized software, in its highest mode (mode II optimized for AVX), the monothread score is 24843 and the multithread score is 55328 points.

There are some CPU models pretty similar to this one like the Intel Core i3-6006U, the Intel Core i5-5200U and the Intel Core i5-2520M amongst others. To know the complete list and how similar are they, please go down on this page.
