The Intel Core i5-3210M is a third generation (Ivy bridge) mobile CPU. Sporting two cores and four threads the 3210M has a maximum turbo clock speed of 3.1 GHz which produces an effective speed of 64.4 or 52% below the modern day group average . For heavily threaded tasks the 3210M is handicapped significantly by its dual core architecture and lags modern CPUs by around 165%. The i5-3210M comes equipped with onboard HD 4000 graphics, which is more than enough for typical desktop use but will struggle with anything but the simplest of 3D games. With a TDP of just 35 Watts the i5-3210M allows for reasonable, but not brilliant, battery life. [Oct '14 CPUPro]
