    Intel Core i3-4170T, i3-4370T and i3-4170 processors

    We recently tested Intel Core i3 processors under LGA1150, and this family has not become faster since then, but we need to return to the topic again for two reasons. Firstly, updating the testing methodology entails the inevitability of a new stage of collecting information — the old results are no longer relevant. Secondly, the «tops» of the sub-line with a TDP of 35 W fell into our hands, testing of which is interesting in itself. Especially if you remember that last time we managed to get acquainted with similar Pentiums, and not with similar ones either.

    The Core i3-4370 continues to be the top of the line “in general”, which we have already tested using the old method, so we will not return to it for now. But the younger “regular” and energy-efficient sub-series (traditionally differing from “regular” ones for processors without Turbo Boost support only in frequency) were updated this spring — the older models in them were 4170, 4170T and 4370T, respectively. Note that, as in the case of the Pentium, the clock speeds of the “T” family have almost reached the values ​​that were once standard for “regular” models, but here the situation is slightly aggravated by the fact that the Core i3 are somewhat more diverse in terms of video core and cache capacity. third level memory. But how this all affects performance — only tests can show. And we cannot do without comparisons with the older Pentium.

    Processor AMD A10-7800

    Price $154(66), T-10674780 9 0009

    But not only with him — recently we got to know each other closely with the AMD A10 line, of which the A10-7800 is the most suitable for today’s testing. Fortunately, its minimum heat pack is somewhere between the “T” family and conventional models under the LGA1150, and the “standard” one is a little higher. But the graphics core is much more powerful — nothing has changed here yet, and it is unlikely that it will change in the desktop segment on these platforms.

    As for other test conditions, they were equal, but not the same: all processors were tested exclusively using integrated graphics, and the frequency of RAM was the maximum supported by the specifications. But its volume (8 GB) and system drive (Toshiba THNSNh356GMCT, 256 GB) were the same for all subjects.

    Test methodology

    To evaluate performance, we used our performance measurement methodology using iXBT Application Benchmark 2015 and iXBT Game Benchmark 2015. All test results in the first benchmark were normalized relative to the results of the reference system, which this year will be the same for laptops , and for all other computers, which is designed to make it easier for readers to compare and choose:

    Processor Intel Core i5-3317U
    Chipset Intel HM77 Express
    Memory 90 009

    4 GB DDR3-1600 (Dual Channel)
    Graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000
    Drive SSD 128 GB Crucial M4-CT128M4SSD1
    Operating system Windows 8 (64-bit)
    Intel graphics driver version 9. 18.10.3186

    iXBT Application Benchmark 2015

    Both applications included in the group «load» all processor cores, and the second one also significantly depends on the performance of the GPU, so Pentium (and Celer) are obvious outsiders here on) , but above — not everything is clear. The best AMD processor with a TDP of 45 W is already steadily behind the Core i3-«T», and the situation can only be corrected by expanding the heat pack; read — milder operating conditions. However, not too much, therefore, although the A10-7800 is faster here than the “T” family, it already lags behind the older regular Core i3, although the heat pack of the latter is still lower. And the most interesting thing from the point of view of intracompany competition is that the energy-efficient Core i3 is much faster than the «regular» Pentium.

    Fewer requirements for the graphics core, worse multithreading support, so it’s hard for everyone to compete even with Pentium. But «worse» does not mean «missing», so the Core i3 is still faster. It is curious that in the case of the A10, «narrowing» the heat pack by 20 W leads to a decrease in performance by 12%, and for the Core i3 (if we compare 4170 and 4170T) — by 14%, but the heat pack also decreases not by 20, but by 18 W. In general, Kaveri in terms of scaling in terms of heat pack is in no way inferior (or even superior) even to Haswell — for which it was created. The only pity, of course, is that the absolute performance indicators in his case are lower.

    Updating the Photoshop version and improving the test, as well as adding a multi-threaded test method in ACDSee did not benefit the Pentium — if earlier these processors were at the level of A8 / A10 and lost to Core i3 at comparable frequencies of 30 percent, now they are already lagging behind the latter starts approaching the doubling. Another wake up call — “just” two cores are becoming insufficient in an increasing number of tasks. You need multithreading, which both Intel and AMD have, but not in all processors. Well, in the end, this translates into a kind of triumph for economical Core i3 models, so a compact computer on which you can work with graphics is already quite possible.

    Two groups (more precisely, two applications) that have not been processed since the time of the total domination of dual-core models such as Core 2 Duo and others like them, because everything is fast anyway. It is clear that in such conditions today Pentiums look the most profitable, while other processors either do not give anything at all (they only cost more), or generally work much slower regardless of the price — the first option is true for the same architecture, the second for .. .other 🙂

    Despite the fact that it’s hard to blame this program for poor multithreading support, the Pentium G3470 looks good at first glance. But only in the first place — only a high clock frequency “rescues” it, which, nevertheless, does not allow it to overtake even energy-efficient Core i3 models, although it makes it possible to compete with dual-module AMD processors. Well, then — more.

    Packing data is a multi-threaded operation with all the consequences. And if intercompany competition is quite possible for the Pentium, it loses heavily to its higher-class counterparts. Note — even at a lower clock frequency of the latter.

    When actively working with files, the platform generally comes out on top, and within one platform, as we see, if anything can be required from the processor, it is a couple of cores, but the maximum frequency .

    The overall result is simple — the Core i3 is better than the Pentium even at a lower frequency. Moreover, today the Core i3 frequency is low only with a limited heat pack. Such i3s easily overtake both Pentium and AMD processors in the overall standings. Well, if we consider the models of «regular» families, the clock frequencies are higher there, so the gap increases to about 20%. Somewhere this is just what can be considered a net gain from Hyper-Threading on average — a considerable amount of software is still able to effectively use only a couple of cores, which limits the usefulness of this technology. On the other hand, with its active use and even the use of the GPU (which is twice as powerful in the Core i3 as in the Pentium), you can get a twofold difference in performance — we also saw this above.

    Gaming applications

    For obvious reasons, for computer systems of this level, we limit ourselves to the minimum quality mode, not only in «full» resolution, but also with its reduction to 1366×768. Despite the fact that the integrated graphics of desktop processors of the A10 line is the best on the market, even it is not yet able to satisfy the demanding gamer in terms of picture quality. This is especially true for Intel processors, where graphics are even weaker in most models. But if you voluntarily agree to the «minimal wages», you can save a lot. We already know this well from previous tests, but today we’ll just see how our updated gaming set works on these processors.

    If you can play FullHD on the A10, then you can only play on the Core i3, and even lowering the resolution does not save the Pentium: as expected. The only interesting thing is that the 4170 is slower than the 4370T, but this is understandable: the heat pack is set for the entire processor, so when the heat emission from the processor cores is reduced (by lowering their frequency), the graphics get more (and Turbo Boost is supported by the GPU of all processors Intel — regardless of the line). We will see this more than once, but we will not dwell on this moment in detail.

    «Tanchiki» is an ideal game for Intel processors, but, nevertheless, the weakness of the graphics part makes them lag behind AMD products in FHD. But not too much — even a Pentium is enough for the game, not to mention higher-level models.

    Another example of a very processor dependent game, where, nevertheless, the weakness of HD Graphics is still felt. Unfortunately, we can’t see the Pentium results here, since the benchmark (not a game!) requires mandatory support for AVX, but in general everything is clear — AMD solutions provide much more gaming comfort than Core i3.

    These games can be played on the A10 at least with a lower resolution, but with Intel processors everything is worse — in HD their performance is only at the level of AMD in FHD.

    Clinical case — so far no integrated graphics can handle this game.

    Initially, everything is suitable for the Tomb Raider, but the question is quality — on the A10, even in FHD, there is some margin for improving the picture, but on the Core i3 in FHD it is still impossible to play at all. On the Pentium, however, things are even worse, but this is not the case when it is worth choosing between these two families.

    And again the situation when you can play at least somehow on A10, but not at all on HDG.

    Unlike Pentium, Core i3 «pulls out» at least HD-resolution, which is lost against the background of the fact that AMD processors have already «taken» FHD in principle.


    In principle, we are already familiar with Core i3 processors for LGA1150, so today’s testing was necessary only because the methodology was updated. But not the results 🙂 Only models with a reduced heat pack were new for us, but their frequencies have almost reached the lower representatives of the «regular» series — and, consequently, the performance too. And if we compare it with the Core i3 of previous families, it turns out that the older models of the latter are already giving in to new economical processors. But there is nothing new here — both AMD and Intel have long been betting on efficiency, since mobile solutions have already occupied more than half of the market. Moreover, nothing has changed in the distribution of “specialization” of processors for a long time: Intel solutions are better suited for general-purpose tasks, and AMD processors are for those gamers who cannot or do not want to use a discrete graphics card. However, for games, both of them are only conditionally suitable, but the question of comparing gaming (at least budget) systems is a separate one. We will start working on them a little later.
