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. Most inspiring of all was its speed in games and image...

Overall, Core i3-2120 and Core i3-2100 appear to be a good and inexpensive addition to the Core i7 and Core i5 LGA1155 series. If you are ready to settle for a dual-core CPU with Hyper-Threading support instead of a fully-functional quad-core, these...

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...

There were two stand out aspects to the processors though. The first one was performance on offer from the i3-2100 for £90/$125. That CPU kept pace with the quad core model in a number of tests and really does offer a...

Although this review is dedicated to Core i3-2100, we'd like to mention two outsiders first: Phenom II X2 560 and Core 2 Quad Q8200. The results of the latter are logical: it's an old, discontinued solution we used solely as a reference point....

The LGA 1155 entry level dual core range is very attractive indeed. The memory controller, the IGP and the PCI Express are back on the same die, which allows the CPU to benefit from reduced latency during memory accesses, at the same time as reducing...
