Core i3-4160


Description
We need your help: we don't have results in all modes. If you have a i3-4160 and want to help us to complete the stats, you just have to run the benchmark at stock frequency (no oc) in modes SSE, and validate the results. You don't have to register and the whole process will take less than 3 minutes per mode.

The Core i3-4160 is a cpu manufactured by Intel that was released on July 2014. This model has 2 Haswell cores with HyperThreading, runs at 3600 MHz as base frequency and has a a thermal design power of 54 W.

The i3-4160 has 32+32 kB of cache L1, 256 kB of cache L2 and 3072 kB of cache L3.

"Haswell is known as fourth-generation core too. It uses 22nm Tri-Gate FinFET (non-planar, ""3D"") technology. It includes four arithmetic logic unit (ALU) and three address generation unit (AGU). This generation is able to run Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2) instruction set among BMI1, BMI2, ABM and FMA3. At this time, Intel used new sockets: LGA 1150 for desktops and BGA1364 for the mobile CPUs."

Non-optimized benchmark
The benchmark in Mode 0 (FPU) measures cpu performance with non-optimized software. It uses the basic µinstructions from the i386 architecture with the i387 floating point unit. This mode is compatible with all CPUs so it's practical to compare very different CPUs

Monothread performance graph
Monothread performance graphics gives the performance vs time. They are useful to measure the time it takes to the CPU to reach the maximum performance.

Usually, CPU's performance will be steady during these tests but if it has a slow frequency strategy, the first samples will show a lower score.

Multithread performance graph
Multithread graphs measure the performance against a heavy load during certain time.

If CPU's TDP doesn't limit the frequency and the machine is properly cooled, performance should remain steady vs time. Otherwise, the performance score will oscillate or decrease over time.
