Intel Core i3-8100 details and performance | Hardlimit Benchmark Central
The Core i3-8100 is a cpu manufactured by Intel released on October 2017. This model is based on Coffee Lake architecture which is the second refinement of Intel’s 14nm (Tri-Gate) technology. While it uses LGA1151 socket, it is incompatible with previous generations due to electrical changes in socket’s pins so these CPUs require Z370 chipset. This kind of generation introduced more cores in every range to compete with new AMD’s arquitecture. Coffee Lake uses DDR4 memory at 2400MHz for i3 and at 2666MHz for i5, i7 CPUs plus iGPU frequency has been increased 50MHz with respect to previous generation.This model runs at 3600 MHz
as base frequency with a thermal design power of 65 W. About its cache memory, this CPU has 4x32+4x32 kB level 1 cache, 4x256kB of level 2 cache and 6144kB of level 3 cache.
If we talk about optimized software, in its highest mode (mode III optimized for AVX2), the monothread score is 61271 and the multithread score is 209250 points.
There are some CPU models pretty similar to this one like the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, the Intel Core i5-8500T and the Intel Core i5-7500 amongst others. To know the complete list and how similar are they, please go down on this page.
