    i'm not a fan of intel but i'd have to say this is pretty impressive and makes i3 a lot more purposeful - imo i3 was overall an unnecessary release (what they should have done is make i3 what the new pentiums are, and drop the pentium name).

    although this is a very impressive tdp, intel needs to focus more on integrated video. if they're not going to let nvidia do it, they need to do better than nvidia. today, if i were to build a cheap intel setup, i'd deliberately not buy an i3 because i'd rather spend the money on a better cpu with a separate better gpu.

    What's with all these low-end Core i parts only supporting 1333MHz RAM?

    Umm.. ..because it's low-end? ;)

    But really.. ..this would be a "perfect" allrounder for the office-type PC.. If the price is right..

    Of course, I typed that at my P4 with 266MHz RAM.

    Seems to me like a possible contender for a very quiet DAW as well.

    If only the integrated GMA wouldn't be so bad.

    The power of the CPUs is not really needed to do your daily tasks like browsing the web or writing a text etc... I can do all this with my Atom330 and only 15 Watts TDP perfectly fine allready.

    The Zacate from AMD with it's 18Watt TDP can compete with the current i5-520M in tasks like web, office or media-playback, but outperforms it by 50% when 3d is asked for.

    As the i5-520M is basically exactly the same as the i3-2100T the 35 Watt TDP for this chip sounds still way too high imho, if AMD can do it with half the TDP.

    Is this much more impressive than current laptop chips?

    This interests me more. Particularly if it's to be put into a netbook or two. Link.

    So what's the big deal then?


    "Its this"?
    If you're asking how this is any better than what can already be achieved using laptop parts then I agree and would like to know too. - Sorry for being cynical but frankly this looks more like a press release than a scoop.

    Isn't that nice, now to pay £xxx to unlock it and overclock. Most likely these are high end chips down clocked for the purpose of overclocking via unlocking by code

    There's hardly any difference between 1333mhz and 1600mhz RAM so who cares? it's not like you'll be missing out unless you're overclocking and i'm pretty sure you won't be able to overclock the i3 2100T anyway.

    hmm well until either the AMD or this i3 actually hit the market place i shall reserve judgement considering the cost or supply could just make them a wet dream if you can't get hold of them.
