Intel Core i3-530 Clarkdale Processor Review - Low Price Performance
System Setup and Testing Configuration
My testing configuration for the Core i3-530 basically mirrors that of the original Clarkdale article though I did leave out reporting results specific only to the new integrated memory controller and integrated graphics core.
Testing of the new Core i3-530 was done on ASUS P7H57 motherboard
I used the same ASUS P7H57 motherboard used in our Core i5-661 testing for this article as it continues to prove itself as a great overclocking platform.
The Core i3-530 CPU will idle at the same 1200 MHz that all Clarkdale/Lynnfield/Nehalem CPUs do
2.93 GHz (more or less) is where the CPU tops out at
