Intel Core i3-350M Vs Core i5-430M
Both, the Intel Core i5-450M and the core i3-350M come with same clock frequency of 2.26 GHz and therefore, makes an interesting comparison. The core i3 processors have does not has the turbo boost functionality, while the core i5 processors come with turbo boost. Obviously, the core i5-450M has better performance than the core i3-350M. The only question is by how much.
