Description of the processor

The Intel Core i3-N300 is an entry-level mobile processor from Intels CPU range. It is based on the Alder Lake N architecture and is manufactured with a structure width of 10 nanometers. The Intel Core i3-N300 was launched in the first quarter of 2023 and supports both Windows (10+11) and Linux-based operating systems. The processor also has an 8.00 megabyte level 2 cache and a 6.00 megabyte level 3 cache.

The processor has 8 identical physical cores and does not support Hyperthreading. 8 Gracemont cores are used here, which are used as efficiency cores in addition to the performance cores in larger processors that are built in a hybrid big.LITTLE core architecture.

The clock frequency of the cores is 1.80 gigahertz and in turbo mode the clock can be increased to up to 3.80 gigahertz. However, the Intel Core i3-N300 only achieves this high clock rate when a single core is utilized. If all 8 cores are utilized in parallel, the clock rate can still be increased to up to 2.80 gigahertz.

The 13th generation Intel UHD Graphics with 32 execution units is used as the internal graphics unit in the Intel Core i3-N300. This has a base clock of 300 megahertz and the maximum clock of the iGPU is 1.25 gigahertz. In addition to the 32 execution units, 256 shaders are used here and the graphics unit achieves a theoretical FP32 computing power (single precision) of 640 GigaFLOPS.

The graphics unit can use up to 64 gigabytes of RAM installed in the system, but the Intel Core i3-N300 itself only supports the operation of a maximum of 16 gigabytes of RAM. The following memory types are officially supported: DDR4-3200, DDR5-4800 and LPDDR5-4800.
