Average Bench: 96% (104th of 1442)

Based on 997 user benchmarks.  Device: BFEBFBFF000B06F5 Model: 13th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-13100F

The Raptor Lake Intel i3-13100F is practically identical to its predecessor, the 12100F. They both feature four hyper-threaded Golden Cove P-cores. The only differences are a 100 MHz base and a 200 MHz boost clock increase which result in a 2% effective speed improvement. With an MSRP of $110 USD, The i3-13100F is the obvious choice for entry level gaming builds. It offers performance that almost matches the previous generations, higher tier, i5-12400F. Since Intel don’t care for long term relationships with PC hardware influencers, for product launches, they often end up sponsoring influencers that are mostly funded by AMD. As a result, Intel rarely get positive marketing coverage beyond launch, and their products remain relatively under priced compared to AMD. When paired with a DDR4 motherboard the 13100F/13400F CPUs (at MSRP) offer unbeatable/good value to entry/mid level PC gamers. High end gamers should investigate the 13600K, which thanks to both higher clocks and higher IPC (Raptor Cove), is around 15% faster than the 13400F. [Jan '23 CPUPro]
