Cores2More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed3.9GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameKaby LakeThe code name given by the manufacturers
TDP54WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache64KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache512KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
L3 Cache3MBThe L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data
Lithography14nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketNot sureThe motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Core i3-7101E 2-Core 3.9GHz compatibility review

Overall, the Intel Core i3-7101E 2-Core 3.9GHz has exceptional performance. Its 2 cores clocked at 3.9 GHz provide extremely swift processing speeds but allow few processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is now over 2021 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This processor will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from Intel.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 14 nanometers, the Core i3-7101E 2-Core 3.9GHz is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, and with a Thermal Design Power of 54W it also requires very little power to run.
