The Fane Was DOA
21 September 2013
Summary: I purchased this Processor for my vary first computer build. Having never built a pc before it was infuriating to find out I hadn't done anything to cause the fan not to run it was in fact DOA. Processor works fine though so not all is lost.
Summary: Honestly, if you're looking to spend around this much on a processor, get one of AMD's FX series processors. They're much better and while they don't have integrated graphics you can easily pick up a GTX 550 Ti or a Radeon HD 7000 series graphics card for under $200.
Pros: -Decently fast -Not too expensive -Okay performance in older games
Cons: -Same price as an FX-4170 -No overclock abilities -Hyper-threaded, which means there are virtual cores instead of physical cores in terms of "quad-core" performance -Terrible integrated graphics
Summary: I'm running it in my server right now because I don't need a powerful cpu for that. I'm gonna stick with my AMD's for now, they work better for me for their price
Pros: It works pretty well. Slower than my main computer, but that one runs an AMD Phenom II quad-core, so not really a fair comparison
Cons: It's more expensive than my Phenom, and overall, I'm not very happy with it. It's pretty good for a dual-core, I guess. The thing that really annoys me about it is the cooler. After a month of operation or so, the computer started to make a grating noise upon bootup. I could eventually make it go...
Summary: I was trying to decide between a AMD Fx 4100 processor or this the Intel i3 2100 processor. After doing some research , I have to say the i3 2100 is superior to AMD's fx 4100 quad core processor in most games right now. Most games only use dual core. I installed this and tested it.
Summary: Sorry to disappoint Amazon readers and reviewers but this Intel i3-2100 processor is only dual (2) core and not as advertised quad (4) core processor. It does have quad (4) hyperthreads but only two physical cores.
Summary: Well, thought it was too good to be true. Advertised as a QUAD core but in actual fact is a 2 core. Given to understand someone else has reported the description to Trading Standards. Was looking for a Quad Core (as per the Google description)and wondered why the item seemed a bargain (NB.
Summary: Intel Core i3 2100 embarque 2 cœurs cadencé à 3,1 GHz et une mémoire cache de 3 Mo ! Une des grande nouveauté de ces processeurs est la présence d'un contrôleur graphique Intel HD 2000 intégré qui vous fera bénéficié de performance vidéo exceptionnelle .
