Some more details of Athlon ii P340

Athlon ii P340 features integrated dual channel DDR3 SDRAM memory controller. The integrated memory controller reduces memory latency and improves overall processor performance. The Athlon ii P340 is decent for entry level notebooks, but its performance trails behind the Intel’s core i3 processors ( for given frequencies)

Some more details of Core i3-350M

The Hyperthreading in the core i3-350M allows 4 threads running simultaneously. The processor is built with two dies on the chip, the first die containing the two cores and the second die containing the Integrated memory controller and the integrated GPU. The performance of the Integrated GPU is for entry level graphics and not really great for gaming, though, it helps reduce system cost by not requiring a separate discrete graphics component. The core i3-330M is for entry level notebooks. More recently, the higher clocked, the core i3-380M has become more popular choice for the notebook manufacturers. The processor communicates with the chipset using DMI Bus – a fast differential Bus. Based upon Arrandale architecture – the core i3-350M has a fast processor to memory communication using its integrated graphics controller
