The Himeno workload is also close to twice as fast with the Core i3 7100. Himeno can make heavy use of AVX 2.0 that's found on the i3-7100 rather than just AVX 1.0 with the i3-2100.

While the system power consumption ended up being much lower with the i3-7100 that was delivering greater performance.

John The Ripper's Blowfish crypto performance was also more than double the speed of the i3-2100.

The TTSIOD results were measurably faster with the i3-7100.

Building the Linux kernel on the i3-2100 took almost seven minutes while under the i3-7100 it dropped to under four minutes.
