Celeron G1840T vs Core i3-3120M comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i3-3120M performs better than the Celeron G1840T. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Celeron G1840T in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Core i3-3120M has more threads. According to our data, the Celeron G1840T and Core i3-3120M have the same clock speed. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

The more cores a CPU has, the better the overall performance will be in parallel workloads such as multitasking. Many CPUs have more threads than cores, this means that each physical core is split into multiple logical cores, making them more efficient. For instance, the Celeron G1840T has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
