Intel Core i3-2100
26 December 2011
Conclusion: As the entry point for Intelâ€™s current-generation family of CPUs, the Core i3-2100 has both the price and the performance youâ€™d expectâ€”and faces stiff competition on the graphics front from AMDâ€™s latest releases.
Pros: Utilizes two processing cores and up to four threads. Full range of Intelâ€™s second-generation Core features.
Cons: Lowest-end current Intel CPU. Uses slower Intel HD Graphics 2000. Competing AMD platforms offer superior integrated video.
Conclusion: Despite the lack of Turbo Boost, the i3-2100 was able to hold its own in many of our benchmarks, giving CPUs such as the LGA1366 Core i7-950 and quad-core Core i5-2400 something to think about.
