its my first post here. i dont know much abt processors except few things. i am about to buy a lenovo with Intel Core i5-470UM processors but not able to find any comparisons of this processor with other processors of i5 family. can you please help is it a good processor or what. also can you tell me which processor is faster i3-380M or i5-470UM or Intel Pentium Dual Core P6200 2.13Ghz.
i5 is slower because it's a ultra low voltage CPU;therefore,it runs slower than normal i5's and is slower than i3 380M.
Core 2 Duo and i3 have different architectures,and the later is usually faster in most cases.
thank you. so all processor ending with UM like 5470UM are low voltage processors? is there any site where i can compare different processor (amd and intel) for speed and performance. as i dont feel good to post these basic questions again and again.
In terms of performance the Dell i5-460M has the most processing power, while it is a dual core processor its 2 cores get more work done per clock cycle than the Phenom II triple core. What do you plan on using the laptop for? If you are doing any gaming than you would need a graphics card.
