Core i3-380M vs Pentium N3530 benchmarks
In our benchmarks, the Pentium N3530 beats the Core i3-380M in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i3-380M in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Pentium N3530 has significantly more cores with 4 cores compared to the Core i3-380M that has 2 cores. But they both have the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i3-380M has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Pentium N3530. The Pentium N3530 outputs less heat than Core i3-380M thanks to a significantly lower TDP. 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. Indeed, the Core i3-380M has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
