Succession
Core 2

Core i3 is family of low-end performance processors introduced by Intel since 2010, following the retirement of the Core 2 family.

Overview[edit]

Intel first announced the retirement of the Core 2 in mid-2009, but the Core i3 was not official launched until January 04, 2010. Core i3 microprocessors are considered performance processors, but generally sit on the low side of the scale. They sit below the Core i5 and well below the Core i7 families, making it fairly decent for multitasking and somewhat OK budget gaming.

All Core i3 processors up to Coffee Lake are dual-core.

Members[edit]

Intel has traditionally been grouping Core i3 processors into generations based on the microarchitecture they are based on with 1st generation being based on Westmere in 32 nm with the latest chips based on Skylake manufactured using a 14 nm process.

1st Generation (Westmere)[edit]

Arrandale Core[edit]

The Arrandale-based i3 processors are dual-core processors. These processors had the FSB replaced with Direct Media Interface 1.0. These processors use Socket-G1. They all have the following features:

Main article: Sandy Bridge Microarchitecture

Mobile[edit]

2nd Generation mobile Core i3 processors were based on Sandy Bridge, an entirely new microarchitecture that provided higher performance at higher power efficiency along with many other improvements and changes. Those new models also integrate a higher performance GPU onto the same die as the microprocessor as well as introduced a new SIMD AVX instruction set extension as well as a number of new technologies. It's also worth pointing out that the ulta-low voltage models are now 1 watt of TDP less than previous generation while having higher clock speed. All Core i3 has the following features in common:

7th Generation (Kaby Lake)[edit]

Main article: Kaby Lake Microarchitecture
7th Gen Core-i3-badge.png

7th generation, modes which was introduced by Intel in early 2017, are manufactured on Intel's improved 14 nm process "14nm+" which allowed for higher clock speeds at similar voltage levels. As such most models enjoy 100-300 MHz clock increase over their previous generation for the same price (Note that clock-for-clock there is no performance improvement over 6th generation Core i3). Overall very few minor features were introduced in the 7th Generation Core i3 models, including improved GPU support for 4K playback via native hardware acceleration. All models incorporate a 600-series integrated graphics processor which is largely identical to their 6th generation 500-series counterparts. Note that 7th generation Core i3 models have dropped support for ECC memory which were used in many small-business and home servers.

Desktop[edit]

Desktop 7th generation Core i3 processors were launched in January of 2017. While their clock-for-clock performance is identical to their 6th generation counterparts, they are clocked higher which allowed for a slight performance increase. All desktop models use Socket LGA-1151 and have the following common features:

  • TDP: 35-60 W
  • ISA: Everything up to AVX (SMM, FPU, NX, MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AES, AVX)
  • Tech: Software Guard (SGX), Memory Protection (MPX), OS Guard, VT-x, and Hyper-Threading

8th Generation (Coffee Lake)[edit]

Desktop[edit]

Coffee Lake-based Core i3s were introduced in late 2017 with a number of high-end SKUs. A larger number of SKUs are set to be introduced in early 2018. Those new 14nm++ parts introduce a number of significant architecture changes including the bump to 4 cores from 2 and a speed bump, improving performance by a fair bit.
