About this deal

Intel® Arc™ graphics only available on select H-series Intel® Core™ Ultra processor powered systems with at least 16GB of system memory in a dual-channel configuration. As the Core i3-10100 is a non-"K" chip—which is to say, "not overclockable"—we didn't get a chance to see what the Core i3-10100 could do without Intel's anti-overclocking shackles on its wrists.

The Ryzen 3 3200G with its Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics far outstripped the capabilities of the Core i3-10100's UHD Graphics in IGP testing, and that's to say nothing of the smackdown we saw out of Vega 11 with the Ryzen 5 3400G. Intel’s products and software are intended only to be used in applications that do not cause or contribute to adverse impacts on human rights.Previously at PCMag, I was a hardware analyst benchmarking and reviewing consumer gadgets and PC hardware such as desktop processors, GPUs, monitors, and internal storage. If you have an older-generation board, pair it with an Intel Core i3-9100 instead, which in our tests was often just as good (and sometimes better) than the Core i3-10100 in multi-core runs. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. On single-threaded tasks the Intel Core i3-10100 performed well, but oddly seemed to struggle against its predecessor, the Intel Core i3-9100, depending on the benchmark. The Night Raid 3DMark run shows just how much work AMD has put into elevating its APUs in the past several years from afterthoughts into serious contenders.

Intel may make changes to manufacturing life cycle, specifications, and product descriptions at any time, without notice. We run lower end CPUs that have IGPs through a series of games tuned to either near-lowest, or the lowest, settings at 1,280 by 720 pixel resolution (720p), as well as at 1,920 by 1,080 pixels (1080p). Otherwise, in those limited scenarios, the Core i3-10100 fulfills its role within Intel's stack dutifully enough. While the Core i3-10100 has 6 MB, the slightly pricier Core i3-10300 and Core i3-10320 have 8 MB of cache and slightly higher clock speeds.

If you want to overclock a processor at this level, the Ryzen 3 3300X and its unlocked clock speed will be the way to go. Granted, those chips were also tested on beefy AM4 motherboards attached to liquid cooling systems that cost as much as or more than the CPU—but we digress. Although the i3-10100 requires a new LGA1200 motherboard, Intel have guaranteed that LGA1200 will be compatible with the next generation of Rocket Lake CPUs, expected later this year. The 10100 allows budget gamers to allocate more money towards a better GPU which often results in a stronger overall gaming system. Additional baselines can be obtained using Windows version of PerformanceTest's Manage Baselines feature.
