Intel Core i3 Overview

The new 2010 Intel® CoreTM i3 mobile processor for laptops is the first level of Intel's new processor family, delivering the performance you need for smart multitasking and extended battery life.

The Intel Core Multi-core performance

Core i3 mobile processor delivers great performance enabled by Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) which enables each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time, delivering the performance you need without slowing down.

Features and benefits

Designed for smart performance, Intel Core i3 mobile processors feature performance-rich technologies:

Multi-core processing provides 4-way multitask processing with Intel HT Technology and two dedicated physical cores helping to deliver additional performance across many types of applications and workloads

Intel HT Technology allows you to handle multiple applications simultaneously with less wait time

Intel® Smart Cache improves performance by dynamically allocating shared cache to each processor core based on workload

Integrated memory controller offers exceptional memory read/write performance through efficient prefetching algorithms, lower latency, and higher memory bandwidth

Intel® HD Graphics provides superb visual performance for sharper images, richer color, and life-like video and audio. Available on select models of the all new 2010 Intel® CoreTM processor family

Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) offers improved manageability, limiting downtime, while maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions
