Previous generation Intel® Core™ i3 processor

As the first level in Intel's new processor family, the previous generation Intel® Core™ i3 processor is the perfect entry point for a fast, responsive PC experience. This processor comes equipped with Intel® HD Graphics, an advanced video engine that delivers smooth, high-quality HD video playback, and advanced 3D capabilities, providing an ideal graphics solution for everyday computing.

A smart choice for home and office, the Intel Core i3 processor also features Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology),¹ which enables each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time, delivering the performance you need for smart multitasking.

Product information

Features and benefits

32nm dual-core processing runs two independent processor cores in one physical package at the same frequency.

Intel® HT Technology delivers two processing threads per physical core for a total of four threads for massive computational throughput. This 4-way multi-task processing allows each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time.

Intel® Smart Cache is shared cache dynamically allocated to each processor core, based on workload. This efficient, dual-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from the fast cache, significantly reducing latency to frequently used data and improving performance.

Intel® HD Graphics provides superb visual performance for sharper images, richer color, and life-like video and audio. Available on select models of the Intel® Core™ processor family.
