For some time, we’ve been hearing voices that 13th generation Intel Core systems are already well known in Asia. It seems that something is already happening, because although there is no official announcement of the chips, there are more tests of upcoming models on the web. This time it’s the turn of the Core i3-13100F, which promises to be one of the most interesting options for economists. How does this system compare to the battered and very cheap Core i3-12100F?
The Intel Core i3-13100F isn’t surprising in terms of specs or performance, but still on the new shelf it’s the better option (as long as it’s not significantly more expensive than its predecessor).

In terms of specifications, this model is not entirely new. This is nothing more than a slightly overclocked i3-12100F chip. So we have four cores, eight threads, and 12MB of cache on board, and everything runs at 3.4GHz/4.5GHz (base/boost). This means that the new model under load is 200MHz faster than its predecessor. Not much, but enough to become the most powerful new quad core in the world. As Cinebench R23 results show, the single-core processor in question is faster than the popular six-core Core i5-12400F. For comparison, the previously higher Core i7-7700K (4R / 8W) loses this category by as much as 41%.

|base/hour reinforcement||3.4 / 4.5 GHz||3.3 / 4.3 GHz||2.5 / 4.4 GHz|
|cache||12 MB||12 MB||18 MB|
|Max TDP||89 watts||89 watts||117 watts|
13th Generation Intel Core processors with a TDP of 65 W were tested in Cinebench R23. It is worth waiting for the first presentation of the chips in January
The advantage over its direct predecessor is a small percentage, which can also be seen in the results in games (tests were carried out on a platform with 16 GB of DDR4-3200 memory and GeForce GTX 1660 Super graphics). So we can say that the Intel Core i3-13100F processor is not surprising. However, that doesn’t change the fact that in a new rack it might be the best possible option (as long as it’s not noticeably more expensive than its predecessor). So we are waiting for the premiere of the chip, which should take place during CES 2023 (January 5-8).
