The recently released processors of the Haswell generation are a step forward in the development of Intel’s CPU designs, yet we are not very enthusiastic about them. The Haswell is optimized for energy-efficient products and offers higher graphics...

As much as we'd like to avoid a repeat conclusion of our other Haswell CPU reviews, it's the same old story - the Core i3-4130 is certainly faster than it's Ivy Bridge predecessors, but not enough to warrant an upgrade. However, the same can't be said...

The latest generation Core i3 is no slouch when it comes to performance, only to fall behind in applications that benefit from dedicated cores (eg 4 cores instead of 2 core with 4 threads). The Core i3-4130 is good to go when it comes to general...

A few new processors appear this month: two from Intel and one from AMD. We also see moderate price drops from both companies, along with a particularly monumental price reduction on AMD's flagship FX-9590, which still doesn't make our recommended list. ...

Niestety nie jest wyposażony w technologię Turbo Boost. Dysponuje też najmniejszą pojemnością pamięci podręcznej (3 MB) i układem graficznym Intela HD 4400. W testach mierzących wydajność rdzeni Core i3-4130 wypada na końcu stawki. Oferuje podobną...

Die Core-i3-Modelle von Intel sind für Einsteiger-PCs konzipiert. Der neue Core i3-4130 mit Haswell-Technik bietet im Test genügend Power für Office-Aufgaben und dank der integrierten Grafik HD4400 sind auch HD-Videos kein Problem. Der Zwei-Kerner...

При этом оставить поколение Haswell незамеченным приверженцам настольных компьютеров старой закваски будет очень непросто. Какой бы застойной им ни казалась эта микроархитектура, смещение интересов Intel в сторону мобильности, компактности и...

L'architecture Haswell avait déjà démontré des gains intéressants sur Core i5 et i7, ils sont logiquement confirmés sur Core i3. Ils sont même légèrement supérieurs, avec 10,8% en applicatifs et 12,8% en jeux face à Ivy Bridge à 3.4 GHz pour une même...
