"On Wednesday we published our first compute performance
numbers for the Core i3 2100, Intel's lowest-end "Sandy Bridge"
processor at this point. This ~$125 USD processor was a step-up from the
previous generation Clarkdale CPUs (roughly the Core i3 530), but
obviously the Core i5 2500K was still a great deal faster. How's the
Sandy Bridge graphics performance though with this low-end CPU? That is
the focus of today's tests."
