Core i5-2320 Vs i5-2400

– The Core i3-2400 is clocked marginally higher at 3.1 GHz Vs 3.0 GHz of i5-2320. This makes i5-2400 slightly better than the i5-2320.

– The Core i5-2400 supports hardware I/O virtualization ( Intel V-d), which is not available in core i5-2320. This feature is worth having if ( and only if) you plan to use multiple virtual machine in your system.

– Other than that the two processors are same. Both belong to Intel’s Sandy Bridge group of processors.
