Intel Skylake CPU’s

Core i3-6100

The Core i3-6100 is a full Skylake processor – not just a renamed older generation part.This is still a lower-end chip though, so there are some compromises. The most obvious limitation, aside from there only being two cores is that Core i3 parts don’t have Turbo Boost.

That means they can’t dynamically overclock to run at higher speeds. In contrast, something like the Core i5-6400 can Turbo Boost from its 2.7GHz base clock to 3.3GHz, while the i5-6600K can tweak itself to a top speed of 3.9GHz.

However, that’s part of the secret to why the i3-6100 may be ideal for some users, as it already runs at 3.7GHz even without Turbo Boost. That’s pretty fast and, as most programs and games are still single-threaded, single-core speed is still the dominant factor in day to day computing.

Nonetheless, there are a few other areas where the i3-6100’s cost-saving is clear. It’s not a K-edition chip so doesn’t have an unlocked multipler for easy overclocking – it will overclock a bit but it’s much more difficult. Halving the number of cores also means it only has half the amount of L2 cache, from 1MB to 512KB, plus its L3 cache is only 3MB. That’s 1MB less than some of the more expensive Core i3 chips and half as much as the Core i5 chips.

The latest i3 is equipped with the Intel HD Graphics 530 integrated core. The 530 variant sits in the middle of Intel’s new integrated range, and it’s got 24 execution units and a clock that runs between 350MHz and 1,050MHz. This is another area where the Core i3 could overhaul more affordable Core i5 chips like the i5-6400. That CPU has the same HD Graphics 530 GPU, but it’s held back to a top speed of 950MHz.
