Average Bench: 59.5% (245th of 1143)

Based on 850 user benchmarks.  Device: BFEBFBFF000306C3 Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4370 CPU @ 3.80GHz

The Intel Core i3-4370 is a mid-range dual-core four threaded 4th generation (Haswell) processor. It was released in Q3 2014 and thanks to its base frequency of 3.8 GHz, it scores a very respectable 96 for effective speed. Whilst this is fast enough to run nearly all applications smoothly, 3D graphics performance is limited by the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600. Although the 4370 is currently the fastest i3, it’s worth considering the i3-4160 which offers significantly better value for money. Comparing the 4160 and 4370 shows that the 4160 is 22% cheaper but only 5% slower in terms of effective speed. [Nov '14 CPUPro]
