Re: two logos for the same i3 processors
Actually, the differences between the two generations of i3 processors is this:
First Gen i3: Dual core, HyperThreaded, integrated GPU, based on Nehalem microarchitecture.
Second Gen i3: Dual core, HyperThreaded, larger cache than first gen i3, some of the new instruction sets introduced with Sandy Bridge microarchitecture
So they're not entirely being honest with the "double core inside" since that hasn't changed much, but it essentially boils down to these differences. The new i3 is nothing to sneeze at, it's a great little low cost CPU.
