CPU full speed - 63W

Standby / full speed power consumption is 25W/63W, a significant reduction compared with the previously tested i3-540 and H55 at 52W/83W
This shows that all LGA1155 second-generation Core i-series platforms made with the same 32nm manufacturing process have lower power consumption and higher performance
For users who care about power consumption and temperature,
these two aspects make the performance advantages of the Sandy Bridge stand out even more

DDR3 bandwidth
DDR3 1064.4 CL7 7-7-20 1T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 13912 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 14146 MB/s
MaXXMEM Memory-Copy -15356 MB/s

Because the previous LGA 1156 architecture uses the built-in GPU, the DDR3 suffers bandwidth limitations
Starting with the new generation LGA 1155 i3, this problem has been fixed, and even if you use the built-in GPU,
you can begin to take advantage of high bandwidth DDR3 provided under the new architecture.
In the same way, the DDR3 1066 bandwidth of the previous and current two generations will have a greater than 50% improvement
If ECS can provide an option in BIOS to switch freely between 1066/1333, higher bandwidth performance should be possible

Intel HD Graphics HD2000 Benchmark Test
Default clock 1100MHz

3DMark Vantage => P1041

StreetFighter IV Benchmark
1280 X 720 => 26.53 FPS

1280 X 720 => 25.25/21.77/28.80/17.80 fps

1280 X 720 => 368

The specifications of the GPU in the i3-2120 are Intel's latest for the HD2000
Compared with the i5-2300 equipped
with the HD2000 that was previously tested by windwithme, there is a difference in 3D performance of about 10 to 15%
Compared with the 3D performance of the previous generation i3-540, this current generation has clearly made huge progress
Although 3D performance is not the main strength of ITX, the performance of the built-in GPU is high,
and for general 3D needs in the future, this will certainly be a big help.

HD2000 Overclocking

27 X 50 => 1350MHz
3DMark Vantage => P1314

StreetFighter IV Benchmark
1280 X 720 => 31.01 FPS

1280 X 720 => 29.52/24.30/33.54/20.71 fps

1280 X 720 => 434

Overclocked 3D performance can be improved by 17-26%, yet unfortunately, unlike several earlier i5 HD2000ís, overclocking in the 1700-1800MHz range is impossible.
But within a small overclocking range, performance gains are not insignificant, so for those web surfers who need performance, this is worth considering
However, if a huge increase in 3D performance is necessary, the better choice is to spend more for an additional graphics card
