Core i3-3217U


Description
The Core i3-3217U is a cpu manufactured by Intel that was released on Jun 2012. This model has 2 Ivy Bridge cores , runs at 1800 MHz as base frequency and has a a thermal design power of 17 W.

The i3-3217U has 32+32 kB of cache L1, 256 kB of cache L2 and 3072 kB of cache L3.

"Ivy Bridge is the last Intel microarchitecture for which there is official driver support for Windows XP . It is made under 22 nm Tri-Gate transistor (""3D"") technology and is basically a Sandy Bridge shrink. It has PCI Express 3.0 support and RdRand instruction for security tasks."

Non-optimized benchmark
The benchmark in Mode 0 (FPU) measures cpu performance with non-optimized software. It uses the basic µinstructions from the i386 architecture with the i387 floating point unit. This mode is compatible with all CPUs so it's practical to compare very different CPUs

Monothread performance graph
Monothread performance graphics gives the performance vs time. They are useful to measure the time it takes to the CPU to reach the maximum performance.

Usually, CPU's performance will be steady during these tests but if it has a slow frequency strategy, the first samples will show a lower score.

Multithread performance graph
Multithread graphs measure the performance against a heavy load during certain time.

If CPU's TDP doesn't limit the frequency and the machine is properly cooled, performance should remain steady vs time. Otherwise, the performance score will oscillate or decrease over time.
