List of products from the Fourth january purchase on online shop computeruniverse.net. We look at what’s inside the packages!
The Intel Core i5-8400 “Coffee Lake” Boxed Sockel 1151-v2 [BX80684I58400] processor is positioned as a reasonable solution for demanding and calculating consumers. It belongs to the average price segment and is a kind of response to the emergence of new processors from rival AMD Ryzen.
In contrast to the Intel Core i5-7400, the Intel Core i5-8400 processor has got two additional cores. The advantages of the new model are also significant improvements in energy consumption and heat dissipation.
Owners of LGA1151 boards wishing to upgrade to the Intel Core i5-8400 “Coffee Lake” will be forced to purchase new boards with LGA1151v2, which are mostly simple rebranding. In addition, users may not be satisfied with the lack of overclocking capability in the processor, but is this such a big problem?

Core i3-8100 – Intel’s budget quad-core processor from the Coffee Lake family. In contrast to the “stones” of the previous generation Kaby Lake, it operates at lower base frequencies, but it has a larger number of cores. By performance, the processor is practically not inferior to its Core i5 counterparts from the previous Kaby Lake generation, but it is sold for a lower price.
There is no Turbo Boost technology in the Core i3-8100, which means that the chip operates at a constant frequency regardless of how many cores are active at current moment. The processor is worse than the Core i3-7100 when lightly loaded, however, thanks to the four physical cores, there is a noticeable performance increase in heavy distributed loads, where the advantage will be on the side of Core i3-8100.
A larger number of cores use more electricity, so the TDP of i3-8100 is 65 W, as opposed to the 51 W consumption of Core i3-7100.
The processor Core i3-8100 demonstrates surprisingly balanced performance characteristics, especially given its retail price. But due to its mass character and popularity, after two years of selling it did not become cheaper.
