Difference Between TI83+ and TI84+ Graphing Calculator

If you need to buy one for 2 models between TI-83+ and TI-84+, what are difference. From the TI83 plus is a model that has been very popular and best selling. Thus leading to the development of the features to a more complete and 2.5 times speed processor fast than to become TI84+. But there are many similar parts. Let’s look at the similarities and differences of the two models.

Battery Backup

TI83+ ==> a lithium battery

TI84+ ==> a silver oxide battery



TI83 Plus ==> 7.5″L x 3.3″W x 0.85″T, weight: 9 oz.

TI84 Plus ==> 7.5″L x 3.3″W x 0.9″T, weight: 12 oz.


TI84+ has a USB on-the-go port, built-in clock, additional for 4 statistic functions, available silicon case blue and pink are sold separately.


Overall, TI84+ is a faster processor and more ROM, help to fast solve the graph.



Processor ==> Zilog Z80

RAM ==> 24KB

Algebraic Input

Connect to computer or other calculator ==> USBPort

Subject ==> Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-calculus, Statistics, Finance, Physics

Batteries ==> 4 x AAA alkaline

Safe mode ==> automatic shutdown for save energy.

Standard Test Approved ==> AP Physics, AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, SAT II Math IC, SAT II Math IIC, ACT, PSAT, SAT I


Not forget, TI84 plus is a great improvement the TI83 plus, but that means the price is not an expensive (cheaper than TI-83+). But if you do not need to use new added functions and do not care the speed, TI-83 is a good enough choice.


We consider the selection of funds and the ability of the models calculator that you are interest to fit the money and features for use. Which the both are perfect to high school and college students. This is a affordable calculator by Texas Instruments.
