Phenom ii n660 vs i3 380m Tags: CPUs Laptops Phenom Last response: July 20, 2011 3:55 AM in CPUs Share PCNERD July 20, 2011 3:19:24 AM I am looking at two different laptops one with phenom ii n660 and the other with i3 380m. They both have 4 cores and while the phenom is faster I hear that doesn't matter as much anymore. The laptop will mostly be for school so word, PowerPoint etc will be used alot. I will also use it for very little photo and video editing. I know both these CPUs arent the greatest for meadia editing but it will be very light. I multitask alot and will often have 10 web pages open plus other things like word or excel. I will do some gaming like sims 3 and need for speed but the CPU doesn't have to be very good for this purpose either. Mostly, I just want to know which is better benchmark-wise. Please try to mostly base your reply on facts. Thanks!!! More about : phenom n660 380m ghnader hsmithot a b à CPUs July 20, 2011 3:33:24 AM no i3 lappy has four cores. Why dont you take a look at the sandy bridge lappys? PCNERD July 20, 2011 3:55:33 AM Sorry i meant to say both are dual core CPUs. I got mixed up with my i7 build for a second.
