A note on the Intel core i3-370M Processor
The Intel’s core i3-370M, that powers the HP Pavilion dv6-3236nr is a dual core processor clocked at 3.40 GHz. The processor is significantly faster than the the earlier similarly clocked core 2 duo processors. This is possible using the new novel architecture in the core i3-370. This processor communicates with the memory using integrated memory controller. With integrated memory controller, the processor communicates with the memory directly, without any chip in between the processor and the memory. This is unlike the earlier core 2 Duo architecture, in which the processor first communicates with a chip called north bridge, which in turn communicates with the memory.
