  • The AMD E-Series E-300 processor is 72% more energy efficient than the Core i3-2100 CPU.

Intel Core i3-2100 advantages



Intel Core i3-2100
  • One of the distinctive features of this processor is Hyper-Threading technology. The Hyper-Threading allows each CPU core to execute two threads at once.
  • Operating frequency of the Intel i3-2100 is higher than the frequency of the AMD E-300.
  • The processor includes SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The microprocessor supports AVX instructions, introduced in the recent past. While these extensions are not extensively used by applications yet, their support should improve in future apps.
  • The CPU uses Socket 1155. The microprocessor can be removed from the socket with ease for replacement or upgrade.

E-300 vs i3-2100 specifications comparison

The charts below demonstrate the difference between Intel Core i3-2100 and E-300 most important characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of additional threads, offered by Hyper-Threading technology. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
