The Intel Core i3-4150 is successor to the i3-4130 2013 Haswell processor. Looking at the 4150 and 4130 side-by-side shows that the only difference between the two processors is a 100 MHz base clock increase from 3.4 GHz on the older 4130 to 3.5 GHz on the newer 4150. The marginal 2.9% clock speed increase brings an equally marginal performance boost. Despite the academic performance gain over it's predecessor, thanks to its excellent single-core performance, the i3-4150 is still an extremely capable desktop CPU and will handle the vast majority of regular desktop computing without breaking a sweat. Coupling the i3-4150 with a discrete GPU will satisfy all but the toughest of gaming requirements. Only the lower powered but significantly cheaper Pentium G's offer better value for money[Jun '14 CPUPro]

MORE DETAILS

From the point of view of a consumer that typically uses a PC for surfing the web, checking email, listening to music and watching videos, I consider that the Haswell i3 processors currently represent the best value for money. The i3-4130 has a performance profile that is just 7% below the top nine group leader average yet it only costs half as much. Power users that play intensive 3d games or run video editing, graphics design or CAD packages will benefit from more than two cores and will do well to look elsewhere but for regular users overall responsiveness will remain largely unchanged regardless of how much more is spent on the CPU. (My new value pick is the G3420 which supersedes my recommendation of the i3-4130.) [Sep '13 CPUPro]

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
