  • Excerpt: The Core i3-530 can't keep up with AMD's similarly priced, quad-core Athlon II X4 635, but it does offer good performance and an opportunity to upgrade to Intel's faster chips down the road.
  • Pros: Speedy for the price, Decent on-chip graphics, Inexpensive
  • Cons: Not as fast as AMD's similarly priced offering, Requires newest motherboard chipsets to enable on-chip graphics
