Intel Core i3-3220 put to the test

By , source: Zol.com.cn


In mid-February, the first details of Intel's Ivy Bridge i3 processors surfaced, including the i3-3220. This chip has 3 MB of L3 cache memory, HyperThreading support and a DDR3-1600 controller. An Intel HD 2500 video chip is integrated in the processor, clocked at 650 MHz, with a Turbo of up to 1050 MHz. Remarkable is the absence of the PCI-Express 3.0 controller. Also missing is Intel's vPro, VT-d virtualisation and AES-NI technology. The Core i3-3220 has a specified TDP of 55 watts.

Zol.com.cn has acquired the processor and ran a series of tests, using a Z77 motherboard, 8 GB of DDR-1866 CL 9 memory and a 1 TB 7200 RPM hard disk. As can be seen on the screenshots below, the chip hs a 3.3 GHz clock frequency. Compared to the Core i3-2130, its predecessor, the new model increased the score in 3DMark Vantage from 1218 to 1746 points.

The Core i3-3220 is expected to launch September 2. When the processor arrives in our test lab, we'll run thorough benchmarks for ourselves, providing you with a proper comparison with the Sandy Bridge generation and Ivy Bridge top models.
