Intel Core i3 1210U:

Geekbench 5:

Geekbench 5 (Single-Core) 1428
Geekbench 5 (Multi-Core) 4280

This processor is showing the performance results as the Intel core i5 12500. And we see the best performance from this processor. Geekbench 5 Test system’s potential for gaming, image processing, and video editing with the Compute Benchmark. This also tests your GPU’s power with support for the CUDA, OpenCL, and Metal APIs. This processor scored the best in the Geekbench 5. This processor also beats some of the latest and most powerful processors with new record-breaking scores of single-core and multi-core performance. The single-core scores are 1428, and the multi-core scores are 4280. As you guys know.


Vendor Intel
Released February 23, 2022
Type Laptop
instruction set x86-64
Codename Alder Lake-U
Model number i3-1210U
Socket BGA-1744
Integrated GPU UHD Graphics (64EU)

Intel Core i3 1210U is a Laptop processor produced by Intel. This processor supports the socket LGA-1700.  This processor is not forced on gaming rather than the actual day-to-day use of productivity. This processor has amazing clock speeds and have amazing cache memories. This processor also has Intel UHD graphics (64U) which is not fast enough to run games on higher graphics but it’s going to run some low-graphics games.


Cores 6
Threads 8
Base Frequency 1.0 GHz
Turbo Boost Frequency 4.4 GHz
Bus frequency 100 MHz
Multiplier 10x
L1 Cache 80K (per core)
L2 Cache 1280K (per core)
L3 Cache 10MB (shared)
Unlocked Multiplier No

This processor has 6 cores and 8 threads with a base clock of 1.0GHz and, a boost clock of 4.4GHz. The bus frequency is 100MHz. which will help PCI lanes in terms of performance. This processor is also unlocked with a multiplier of 10x. This processor has the fastest L1, L2, and L3 cache memories. The L1 cache memory is 64K per core which means 6 cores have their L1 cache memories. The L2 cache memory is 9728k but it’s shared with the Ram. The L3 cache memory is also 10MB which is also shared with the system. If you are looking for the best value processor then this Intel Core i3 1210U is the best choice. In terms of gaming, this processor performs very great with good compatibility with the Nvidia GPU and with the AMD GPU. In terms of video editing and graphics rendering this processor also shows the best performance. Because of its base clock of Intel Iris Xe graphics.

Power Consumption:

Fabrication process 10 nm
Max. temperature 100°C

This processor has one of the lowest power consumption. This processor runs on only 9W which is very amazing. The processor will be very good at heat management and will be so smooth with the 4.4GHz speeds running on 9W. This processor also has the ability to run slower according to the user’s needs. This processor is based on 10NM process fabrication which will also help in getting the processor cool in extreme conditions. The maximum temperature is also 100c which is also great.

Integrated GPU:

Integrated Graphics Intel UHD Graphics (64EU)
GPU Base Clock 300 MHz
GPU Boost Clock 850 MHz
Shading Units 512
TMUs 32
ROPs 16
Execution Units 64
TGP 45 W

Unlike the AMD Ryzen processors, this processor has integrated Graphics of UHD graphics (64U). UHD graphics (64U) has 512 shading units with a base clock of 300MHz and a boost clock of 850MHz. there are also 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs which will help in a performance increase. There are also 64 Execution units. The TGP shows only 45W of power consumption. What basically a TMUs are, are texture mapping unit component in modern graphics processing units. It helps in rotating, resizing, etc. ROPs or (Raster operation pipelines) are the rendering output unit. This processor also has a powerful enough GPU that you can play some games on it like Call of Duty Modern warfare 1, 2, 3, etc. the boost clock will help to stabilize the FPS in games.

Ram support:

Memory types LPDDR5-5200, LPDDR4x-4267
Memory Size 64 GB
Max. Memory Channels 2
ECC Support No

Intel Core i3 1210U can support the LPDDR5 Ram with a memory frequency of 5200MHz, and LPDDR4x with 4267MHz. the max memory support of this Intel Core i3 1210U is 64GB. The max memory channel support is also 2. The max memory bandwidth is also 76.8 GB/s which is incredibly fast compared to AMD. There is no ECC support on this Intel Core i3 1210U.

Gaming Experience:

This processor is a good option for gamers. Considering its capabilities, it performs well in almost any situation like editing, gaming, rendering, streaming, etc. So, if you are looking for a processor under $400 then I highly recommend this processor because it doesn’t have any alternatives. You got 12 cores, 24 threads, and a boost clock of 4.4GHz. This will play every game at high FPS with a good combination of Graphics card and Ram. You will see no issues in the performance unless there is a bottleneck. So, to avoid that, I will make complete another article on the best compatible Ram, storage, and GPU for this processor. Just let me know in the comment.

So, this was my review of the Intel Core i3 1210U. If you guys learned something new then make sure to check out my other articles in the review, as well as my YouTube channel.
