The I3 is just an improved core 2 duo. Same basic execution core with improvements like on die memory controller, hyperthreading, and a die shrink among a few others. It also uses a new motherboard socket.

The result of these changes are more speed and less power usage.

If your looking to purchase, the I3 is the better choice for a new build.
