Average Bench: 31.7% (616th of 1104)

Based on 10,065 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000306A9, , 00000000000306A9 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3317U CPU @ 1.70GHz

The Intel i5-3317U is a dual core, four thread, 3rd generation Ivy Bridge netbook and laptop processor. It launched in Q2 2012, and has since been succeeded by the i5-4200U which is a 4th generation Haswell (2013) processor. Comparing the 4200U and 3317U shows that, for 20% more money, the i5-4200U has a 10% faster effective speed and a 12% lower TDP. This is due to the newer and improved Haswell architecture. The TDP of 17 Watts should yield over 5 hours of battery life for average use. Like most mobile processors, the effective speed of 51.1 is poor, however, it's okay for handling the majority of day to day processing activities. The i5-3317U also has onboard HD Graphics 4000 which is sufficient for typical desktop use. [Nov '14 CPUPro]
