With four cores and 6MB of cache memory, the Core i3 8100 3.6 GHz Quad-Core LGA 1151 Processor from Intel delivers more performance for everyday computing tasks than the previous generation. This 8th-generation Intel Core i3-8100 processor is built on Coffee Lake architecture and runs at up to 3.6 GHz speeds. This processor is compatible with motherboards that sport an LGA 1151 socket and an Intel 300-series chipset, so the CPU can provide up to sixteen PCIe 3.0 lanes for NVMe storage drives, graphics cards, and other high-performance parts.
Intel has equipped the Intel Core i3-8100 processor with an integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset that outputs up to 4K visuals through your motherboard’s DisplayPort and HDMI ports. When connected to a DisplayPort-enabled monitor, the Intel UHD Graphics 630 can produce 4096 x 2304 resolution at 60 Hz. Running under a 4K resolution lets you enjoy ultra high-definition videos as well as view more information onscreen when compared to working in a lower resolution workspace.
Aside from graphics, the Intel Core i3-8100 processor has an average power requirement of 65W and supports DDR4 2400 MHz memory modules, running in a dual- or single-channel configuration. Furthermore, included along with the Intel Core i3-8100 processor is a fan and heatsink thermal solution for cooling the chip.
