Intel Core i3-3229Y is a low-voltage, integrated (soldered onto the motherboard), low-end processor, announced in
Q1 of 2013. It is part of the “Ivy Bridge” generation and operates at a base frequency of 1.4GHz. Unlike its “bigger brethren” of the Core i5 and Core i7 families, i3-3339Y does not sport TurboBoost functionality, prohibiting it from overclocking its cores during periods of higher loads.
The chip is equipped with 128KB of first level cache, 512KB of second level cache, and 3MB of third level cache. The Core i3-3229Y has been developed using a 22nm process, allowing for the integration of the Intel HD Graphics 4000 controller. It operates at a base frequency of 350MHz, while Turbo Boost can increase that to 850MHz. Power consumption of the whole SoC (System on a Chip) is 13 watts, with a maximum operating temperature of 105C.
Intel Core i3-3229Y supports HyperThreading (additional virtual core for every physical one), PCI Express 2.0 and up to 32GB of DDR3/L/-RS 1333/1600 memory and the SSE4 instruction set.
