Memory Bandwidth Performance

The memory bandwidth performance of the Intel Core i3 370M in the Asrock Vision 3D is very similar to that of the AMD Phenom II X2 560, and surprisingly, EVEREST reported the mobile Core i3 370M as being faster. Additionally, the Asrock Vision 3D was around 200MB/s faster than the i3 330M-equipped Core 100HT-BD

We used EVEREST to measure the L2 cache performance of each processor. The Phenom II X2 560 in our custom built HTPC provided a greater read result when compared to the Core i3 370M of the Vision 3D while the write performance of the Core i3 370M was significantly higher. The Core i3 370M was considerably faster than the Core i3 330M processor in this test.
