Intel Core i3 (3220 vs 2120)

OK. I already bought Core i3 2120.
I just wanted to ask how much faster is 3220 in comparison? And, does it make any difference in Gaming, with a discrete Graphics Card (Maybe, I'd be buying soon, an Raedon HD 7750).

An, also what is the importance of Graphics frequency?
i3 2120 has 850 MHz
i3 3220 has 650 MHz

Thanks in advance !!!

  1. Graphics frequency doesn't matter because you'll be using a discrete card. The 3220 is 5% to 10% faster in CPU-limited activities.
  2. Still, in terms of Graphics frequency, Is higher the better?

    in all honestly both gpu's will give you terrible results so if your doing more than watching movies buy a discrete gpu with intel cpus
  4. Unfortunately both of them come with the inferior grades of Graphics ( The HD Graphics 2500 and the HD Graphics 2000 and not the HD 4000 and HD 3000). This makes graphics not worth any graphics gaming. Some more details are here http://compare-processors.com/core-i3-3220-vs-i3-2120/5975/
