AMD E1-1200 advantages
- The AMD E1-1200 processor has 72% better power consumption than the Core i3-2100 microprocessor.
Intel Core i3-2100 advantages
- This processor incorporates Hyper-Threading feature, which allows each CPU core to execute two threads at once.
- The processor comes with higher operating frequency than the E1-1200.
- The Intel Core i3-2100 features SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
- The CPU supports AVX instructions, that appeared in modern CPUs not too far ago. While these extensions are not broadly supported by programs yet, their support should improve in future applications.
- The Intel Core i3-2100 uses Socket 1155. The processor can be easily removed from the socket for replacement or upgrade.
E1-1200 vs i3-2100 specifications comparison
The graphs below show the difference between Intel Core i3-2100 and E1-1200 most important characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of extra threads, provided 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.
