Hello,

I like to know the practical perfomance difference between Core 2Duo and i3 processor

Huge.But not that much if you are comparing it with e8400 and above.

Clock for clock the i3 will be a little faster, but not much. If you had a Core 2 Duo e7500 ... compared to the i5-530, they both have the same clockspeed, but the i3-530 has integrated graphics, more cache, and a different socket with native DDR3 memory controller built into the CPU.

Check the above link for a clock for clock benchmark and you will see the i3-530 is a little faster overall, but not a huge difference.
