12th Gen Baby!!

Pros:
-Really great single core IPC performance
-Cheap and outperforms old-generation Ryzens easily
-FREE RM1 cooler looks mean
-Runs cool on my tests even with stock cooler

Cons:
-Doesn't have iGPU
-Suffers from the dreaded 'i3 branding'
-Poor resale value because most 'normies' will see i3 and dismiss it
-You can't remove the i3 branding
-Your self-esteem stats will decrease because of i3 branding
-Box comes with same colour scheme as 11th gen, so you will really struggle convincing people about that this is 12th gen CPU
-Don't know why they made i3 font bigger over 12th Gen
-Your mates will judge you because you have an i3, ...view more

Finally, a fantastic budget CPU for light gaming!

My Z97 motherboard w/ 4690k finally died (bad VRM cooling + 9 years of use) so I reluctantly had to upgrade.. Was super lucky to pick up one of these this week. Insane performance, beats Zen 3 cpu's in single-threaded workloads, perfectly adequate for 120hz+ 1080p gaming with a decent GPU. I'm running it with 16gb 3200mhz CL18 ram, and a B660M Gaming AC gigabyte mobo. I can see this thing lasting me another five years at least, and for the price, it's probably the best value computing purchase I have ever made - maybe will ever make. Highly, highly recommend for most users, especially at 1080P.

Unbeatable price-performance for budget CPU

The only contender in the mainstream-budget class CPU for general computing and gaming system with discreet graphics card.

Single core performance exceeding or equal to previous generation's mid-tier Intel i5 and Ryzen 5 series CPUs.

Welcome back Intel.

The best i3 ever

The performance is stronger than my previous 8th gen i5-8500. Factory CPU cooler is enough, no need to buy an aftermarket cooler for this model i3.

Quite the CPU for the buck

The Core I3 12100f is roughly 2021-2022s best budget CPU. Worth every cent if you plan on upgrading to a more high Raptor Lake CPU as soon as they release. Or if you just want that sweet feeling of a new socket projected to be used up until the 14th or 15th generation. However, note that the CPU is quad core, so you shouldn't expect your multicore/(multithreaded?) performance to be THE best. Single Core performance is a whole different story, and I would highly recommend looking at the benchmarks online for the i3. Overall, i'd recommend this CPU for people/gamers on a tight budget or people who spend more money on other components like the...view more

Much more powerful than you'd think from an i3

For the price, doesn't get much better. On par with i5 from previous gens, with the added future proofing on your motherboard.

fast cpu

don't be put off by this being a core i3, which in the past were slow - this cpu is faster than the core i7 from a few generations ago.....if you combine with 4th gen SSD NVMe then you have a really fast budget system, highly recommended. Note - I got the tech guy in store to install this into the mobo for me - it is easy to break the tiny little cpu pins if you are not careful.
