At present, the non-K model of the 13th-generation Core CPU has been released. I tested the i5 13400F some time ago. Compared with the i5 12400F, the performance improvement is quite significant, especially with the addition of 4 performance cores. The multi-core performance is 30% ahead, and the single-core performance is also better. An increase of about 5.5%. However, users still care about the performance of the i3 13100F, so how much is the improvement of the i3 13100F compared to the 12100F? Let’s share the performance comparison evaluation of i3 12100F and 13100F.
First of all, let’s take a look at the comparison between the parameters of Intel’s new 13th generation Core i3-13100F and 12th generation Core i3-12100F, and initially understand the differences between the two CPUs.

Note: If the CPU model suffix has F, it means that there is no built-in core graphics card, and it needs to be equipped with an independent graphics card to light up. If the CPU model suffix does not have F, the i3 12100 and i3 13100 have a built-in UHD730 core display.
The i3 13100F is the only 13th-generation Core CPU that does not support the design of large and small cores. From the parameters of the two CPUs, i3 13100F and i3 12100F, it can be seen that the i3 13100F only has a small advantage in frequency. Compared with the i3 12100F The base frequency is increased by 0.1GHz, the highest turbo frequency is increased by 0.2GGz, other parameters are basically the same, and the performance lead is small. The pure vest version is expected to have little performance gap.
The CPUs of the test computers are i3-13100F and i3 12100F, both of which are equipped with H610 motherboards, 500G M.2 NVMe solid state, dual 8G 3200MHz (16GB) memory, RTX3060 graphics cards, and Windows 10 Professional Edition system.
In the CPU-Z benchmark performance test, the i3 13100F is only about 5% ahead of the i3 12100F in terms of single-thread performance and multi-thread performance.
CineBench R23 performance test
In the CineBench R23 rendering test, the i3 13100F is only 3.5% ahead of the i3 12100F in single-core performance, and the multi-thread performance is less than 4%.
Since the performance difference between the two is not big, the game is too lazy to test, and it is estimated that there is only a gap of 1-2 frames.

Compared with the i3 12100F, the performance gap of the i3 13100F is relatively small, basically negligible. The i3 13100F is a vest version of the i3 12100F, an upgrade of squeezing toothpaste. As for whether the i3 13100F is worth buying, as long as you look at the price, if the i3 13100F is more expensive than the i3 12100F, and the price difference is ignorable, you can consider the i3 13100F. If the price difference matters to you, then it is recommended You consider the i3 12100F, after all, there is not much difference in performance between the two.
