  1. Mobile core i3 CPUs also lack Turbo Boost which is only available to mobile Core i5 and i7 CPUs. It is basically an automatic overclock (200MHz - 400MHz depending on the model) and it depends on how many core are being used and the temperature of the CPU.

    Generally speaking a 2nd gen Core i3 is 12% more powerful than a 1st gen Core i3. A 3rd gen Core i3 is 6% more powerful than a 2nd gen Core i3. Therefore, a 3rd gen Core i3 is about 19% more powerful than a 1st gen Core i3 CPU. That means an Ivy Bridge Core i3/i5/i7 CPU running at 2.0GHz is basically just as powerful as a 1st gen Core i3/i5/i7 CPU running 2.4GHz.
