Intel Core i3-2100

PC Magazine
12 August 2011
  • Conclusion: As the entry point for Intel’s current-generation family of CPUs, the Core i3-2100 has both the price and the performance you’d expect—and faces stiff competition on the graphics front from AMD’s latest releases.
  • Pros: Utilizes two processing cores and up to four threads. Full range of Intel’s second-generation Core features.
  • Cons: Lowest-end current Intel CPU. Uses slower Intel HD Graphics 2000. Competing AMD platforms offer superior integrated video.

Intel Core i3 2100

  • Conclusion: Do not be fooled by the $124 pricing of the Core i3 2100. The processor is not a sloth. While it is not able to compete against a true quad-core when it comes to heavily threaded application, thanks to hyperthreading, it is more than capable in lightly-threaded applications, often coming out above AMD quad core processors. The processor is in direct competition against the AMD Phenom II X4 and Athlon II X4, often excelling in lightly threaded tasks.
  • Pros: Excellent performance for light threaded applications, Low power consumption, Runs at low temperatures, Decent integrated graphics from Intel HD 2000, Hyperthreading support, Affordable, Good price and performance ratio
  • Cons: Cannot compete against quad cores in heavily threaded applications, Lacks AES-NI support, Limited overclocking potential

Core i3-2100 (65W) und Core i3-2100T (35W)

Au-Ja!
5 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Fazit Auf den ersten Blick erschien die Entscheidung klar: Wenn man Intels Core i3-2100 in einer 35- und einer 65-Watt-Version bekommen kann, greift man natürlich zur energieeffizienteren Variante, zumal diese kaum mehr kostet. Doch trotz der sehr ähnlichen Produktnamen liegen zwischen dem Core i3-2100 und dem Core i3-2100T nicht nur 30 Watt, sondern auch satte 600 MHz.

  • Summary: Intel Core i3 2100 er med sine to kjerner med en kjernefrekvens på 3,1 GHz og 3 MB L3-cache en prosessor som leverer god ytelse i en rekke applikasjoner. Naturlig nok har prosessoren lite å stille opp med mot kraftigere modeller med mange kjerner når det gjelder tunge prosesseringsoppgaver, men dette er heller ikke vanlig bruk for den gjennomsnittlige databruker.

  • Excerpt: Rodzina procesorów Sandy Bridge Intela to nie tylko świetnie podkręcające się i bardzo wydajne odblokowane modele Core i5 2500K oraz Core i7 2600K, to również szereg tańszych konstrukcji, poprzez tańsze czterordzeniowe procesory serii Core i5 po dwurdzeniowe i zarazem najtańsze modele serii Core i3.
