List of the goods from computerunivse’s february orders:
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.
