The processors of Intel's Core i3 series are the smallest of the "Core i" family. They are equipped with 2 cores and hyperthreading. Hyperthreading simulates an additional core (so-called virtual core) for each physical core, which ensure that all cores are utilized optimally because the next arithmetic operations are already inserted into gaps of the first arithmetic operation. Depending on the application, hyperthreading can bring a performance increase from 0 to 40%.

The mobile processors, of the Core i3 series are marked with a M, U or Y. Particularly economical desktop variants are marked with a T. Here, the maximum clock frequency has been reduced, making the processors more economical but also slower.

With Core i3 processors, current games can be run at 1080p, but a dedicated (external) graphics card is recommended in most cases because the Intel HD Graphics of Intels Core i-series is not fast enough to run current games at sufficiently high frame rates. The processors of the Core i3 series do not have a turbo mode.
