First up with the embarrassingly parallel test from NPB, the Core i3 8100 is 13% faster than a Core i5 6500 Skylake. The i5-6500 is a quad-core part without HT, 3.2GHz base frequency, and 3.6GHz turbo... While the i3-8100 is a quad-core outright at 3.6GHz. In EP.C, the i3-8100 is much faster than the Ryzen 3 1300X and even the old FX-8370E eight-core CPU.

With Rodinia, the Core i3 8100 was now right in line with the Ryzen 3 1300X for this particular test.

While with the HMMer scientific test where Intel's greater IPC performance yields much better numbers, the Core i3 8100 is aligned with the Ryzen 7 1700.

While in John The Ripper's OpenMP Blowfish crypto test, the i3-8100 is back to being in line with the Ryzen 3 1300X and superior to the Core i5 Skylake.
