Core i3 is an entry-level 2-core processor using the 32nm Westmere micro-architecture. With a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 73 watts, the i3-530 is a cool-running chip that doesn't gobble loads of electricity, so those looking for a power-efficient, quiet machine will be happy with it.

Al Chartreux says, "I helped a friend put together a build with the Core i3-530. It's a nice machine, and we're pleased with how it came out and performs. Like all of Intel's desktop CPU's, the Core i3-530 is a quality chip, and at a price of $114.99, certainly among the most inexpensive of Intel's desktop offerings, which tend to be priced at a range of $150 to $300 for low to mid-range chips, and $310 and higher for high-end chips. At a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 73 watts, the i3-530 is a cool-running chip that doesn't gobble down loads of electricity, so those looking for power-efficient, quiet machines will be happy with it.
