Interesting Cheap Intel Core CPU
#304666 - 02/21/13 07:23 AM


I was looking at Cheap CPUs and I noticed the Intel Core i3-3225 3.3GHz.
It's $144.99 on Newegg.com

It's the only i3 that has Intel HD Graphics 4000, which makes it kind of an oddball.
All the other i3 chips have Intel HD Graphics 2000/2500/3000.

It's an IvyBridge part.
It's only a dual core, but it supports hyperthreading, so it's like a ghetto quad core.
It supports DDR3-1333/1600 memory.
It's a 55W part (lower power means less less cooling needed).

My cab has a core i3 2100 @ 3.1 (sandy bridge) and let me tell you-I am amazed at what this processor can do.I was using it as my desktop for about 4 months before I built another desktop and the i3 when paired with a modest video card like the GTX 460 is amazing.I was running Skyrim @ high,and was able to play most games on Dolphin in 1080p.

Sure you may pay more then a comparable AMD chip,but the quality of Intel chips are just on another level
