Launched in the first quarter of 2011, the Core i3-2100 has enough performance advantage to compete with sub $100 Quad core AMD’s Athlon and Phenom Processor.

The core i3-2100 belongs to the second generation of Sandy Bridge processors that will require a new motherboard that can take in FCLGA1155 package. This is unlike the AMD series that has, for long been doling out processors that can fit in the AM2+/AM3 sockets, preserving the investment in the motherboard.

If you happen to compare core i3-2100 against other AMD processor, be sure to take into account the cost of the motherboards as well.
