Intel 9th Generation Core i3-9100 CPU (Coffee Lake, 43925 Cores/Threads, 3.6GHz Base, 4.2GHz Boost, Socket LGA 1151 (300 Series), 65W TDP Desktop Processor), Model BX80684I39100
The i3-9100 is Intel's entry level 9th Gen i3 chip. It includes UHD 630 integrated graphics, and has four cores.
This requires an LGA 1151 motherboard, make sure that you get 300 series. Like all Coffee Lake and later Intel CPUs, it WILL NOT work with a 100 or 200 series motherboard.
The integrated UHD 630 graphics are decent.
With a CompUSA Processor Benchmark score of 120, this is competitive with the AMD Ryzen 3200G (130), and lags well behind the Ryzen 3 3100 (217).
