Reviews

ComputerBase

Der Core i3-8100 und der Core i5-8400 schicken sich am Ende an, nicht der Liebling der PC-Bastler, sondern die neuen Lieblings-CPUs der OEM-PC-Systeme zu werden. Vier Kerne für 120 Euro und sechs Kerne für 180 Euro werden nach Core i5-7500 und Core i3-7100 die neuen Verkaufsschlager im Massenmarkt sein.

Hardware Secrets

Compared with its predecessor, the Core i3-7100, the Core i3-8100 is a lot faster on games and applications that use four cores.

TechSpot

On the other hand, the Core i3-8100 is a bit special at $120, a price that nearly makes it a Ryzen 3 killer. I say nearly because right now we're missing one key ingredient: affordable motherboards.

tom's Hardware

Intel's Core i3-8100 offers four physical cores for a mere ~$120, which is a tremendous value compared to the previous generation Intel models. We'll be even more impressed when reasonably priced B350 motherboards come to market.
