Intel i3 6100 Performance
The Intel® Core™ i3 6100 boasts a 3.7 GHz base frequency, the processor is also built on a 14 nm process, with a 35 W maximum TDP. The chip is a Dual-Core design with 4 threads. Integrated into the processor is Intel® HD Graphics 530 which delivers mainstream-level graphics with discrete-level performance and has full support for DirectX 12 API. Intel’s 6100's performance is best when used with an Intel 100 series chipset motherboard. Previous generation Intel processors such as the Intel® Core™ i7-4790K processor used DDR3 memory, typically running at 1600 or 2133MHz. The Core i3 6100 have an enhanced memory controller that supports DDR4 memory, giving you a very healthy performance boost over DDR3.

Intel® Core™ i3 is a brand name applies to several families of desktop and laptops, The Core™ i3 brand is an entry-level processor for both desktop and laptop computers, and is distinguished from the business and high-end consumer market Core™ i7 and the more mainstream Core™ i5.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far so good. Speed wise it seems to be good enough for what i use it for. 04 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I was worried that it wouldn't run newer games that utilize 4 CPU cores, but it seems to do the trick thanks to hyperthreading. I have it in an extremely compact mini itx case, and it runs at 20°C and around 50°C under load which is pretty astonishing. It's a big improvement from haswell. Overall it's a great value chip, you need this CPU in your life. you cannot live without this processor. this central processing unIT SUSTAINS MY VERY BEING. ALL HAIL THE INTEL CORPORATION 03 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very capable and efficient CPU I have this paired with 16GB DDR4 ram and an M2 SSD on an ASUS Z170-K motherboard. It does not disappoint! Previously I had an AMD FX quad core system and while it was a solid, stable platform, it was terribly inefficient with a 125 watt TDP. Although this i3 is effectively a dual core, with about 8MB less cache than my previous AMD cpu, it is just as capable if not more so and does all this with a 47 watt TDP. I've always used and built AMD systems, but Intel are way out in front with their technology. 21 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressive sixth generation CPU Why pay for an i5 when this is so quick and uses less power? Used for video editing its really impressive. 29 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value upgrade I had to update my machine to put in a new compatible motherboard and looked at sticking to the older technology but when it came down to it, moving to a new Skylake processor, especially this i3, made the jump so much easier, same price point but slightly faster processor. 09 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best budget gaming cpu available at the time of this review I bought this CPU as part of a budget gaming PC build and I have to say I am not disappointed. I have paired it up with a decent Asus Z170 board so I can upgrade to an unlocked i7 in the future without swapping the board out. I paired it with 8gb corsair vengeance 3000mhz ram and an r9 380 4gb. The faster ram actually does help this CPU squeeze a few extra fps out of some games too. Although you can't overclock this CPU like the k series there really is no need. It does not stutter in any task I have handed it and it runs super cool while sipping very little power while doing it. I highly recommend this CPU over say the AMD 6300 because although this has less physical cores it will still beat it in pretty much every task. 23 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product from Intel as usual This little fella is a monster, can handle pretty much all late games with ease. If you are on a budget this is the perfect cpu for you. 03 November 2015
