C2D is 65 and 45nm. i3 has integrated graphics. C2D does not. i3 has hyperthreading. C2D does not. So basically the only thing it has going for it is the fact that it is 32nm. | Report abuse p1n3apqlexpr3ss February 10, 2010 4:38:02 AM And hyperthreading so it can perform much better in multi-threaded apps, and generally higher clock speed, and better architecture.. | Report abuse p1n3apqlexpr3ss February 10, 2010 4:43:06 AM Not to mention that the e8500 is around 35% more expensive then the i3, but also gets owned in most if not all benchmarks... Just with the i3, youre looking at a bit more expensive mobo | Report abuse kokin February 12, 2010 10:13:52 AM I think the sarcasm was missed. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>I 3 vs core 2 duo> Related ressources: ForumCore i 3 1st gen vs core 2 duo ?what are the differences?
