The Intel Core i3-530 processor includes built-in HD graphics.
The Intel Core i3-530 contains two processors, or execution cores, on one integrated circuit. Combined with four threads, the Core i3-530 can simultaneously work on multiple tasks. This design produces faster and more efficient results, so your computer won't slow down--no matter how many applications you have open.
Hyper-Threading for Better Efficiency
The Intel Core i3-530 Processor features Intel Hyper-Threading Technology to deliver more efficient use of resources and better performance on multithreaded software. You'll be able to run demanding desktop applications, such as music and movie creation applications, while running background applications, such as virus protection software, and still maintain system responsiveness.
Large Smart Cache for Better Media Performance
Intel Smart Cache provides performance-maximized storage for frequently accessed data. The Intel Core i3-530 has a generous 4 MB of Intel Smart Cache kept close to the processor, so there's always data feeding in. The result is better overall functionality for everyday applications and markedly improved performance for rich media titles and games.
Intel HD Graphics Built-in
With the Core i3-530, Intel HD Graphics is built right into the CPU, so you won't have to spend money on an external graphics card in order to get stunning results. Intel HD Graphics provides sharp images, rich color, and lifelike audio and video. Intel HD Graphics support multiple monitors, premium video such as Blu-ray Disc playback and mainstream gaming as well as a full Windows 7 experience.The Core i3-530 has a graphics core that runs at 733 MHz, and to maximize viewing power.
The Intel Core i3-530 is made on a 32nm manufacturing process for better energy efficiency. It uses the LGA1156 socket and is backed by a three-year limited warranty.

It's a huge improvement coming from an old AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (1.8 Ghz).
I expected more like a lightning fast opening programs and files, but when it really shines is in multitasking. I can do several tasks at a time like trans-coding movies, burning dvds and playing a movie without a hiccup. It's great not having to wait for frozen windows !!!
On the power consumption side, it's very frugal, even more than my old AMD with Venice core. Consumption for the old box was between 60 and 95 watts, but this build oscillates between 55 watts and 80 watts. Box is a QPack, with one SATA DVDRW and a SATA HD using internal graphics, measured with a Kill-A-Watt meter.
I'm very happy with this update I made to my system. Installed the old parts in my mom's old PC.
I'm glad that I could wait until now. I got a 32nm processor with all the bells and whistles. I expect this one last several years too as my old parts.
If you're on a tight budget and looking for a low-power chip that will handle everyday tasks and gaming, the i3-530 will perform admirably, especially since most common applications and games being run today still only take advantage of, at most, two chip cores.Read more ›
