Well it's everything most people expect good cpu, but also disappointing if you are expecting a big difference from the skylake. But that's been the norm for intel small updates for the past few years, but on the flip side you do know what you're getting when you buy one.

Pretty nice CPU for the price depending on what you're trying to achieve.

Great value for the clockspeed. Beware - reviewers purport that it only works with win10. Came with adequate stock fan. Super easy installation, even for a first-timer like me.

I probably read the most about CPUs because they are a big investment into the whole system and I didn’t want overkill or bottlenecking. Didn’t care for overclocking and read great things about the i3-6100 even paired with a GTX 1060. So I planned on that, but then the 7100 came out and went on sale, so that was fine with me. I know there’s not really a significant performance increase, but whatev

For a cheap home/office build this is a good 2 core processor

Its ok for gaming, and VERY light video editing using Davinci Resolve.

Fast, Optane ready and supports 2400mhz DDR4 out of the box. Builds upon the excellent price/performance of the i3-6100, even if it is somewhat overshadowed by the Pentium G4560 in terms of price/performance.

There was very few reasons to get this instead of a Pentium from 2017. If you are not going to use a GPU then i'd recommend using this, I find that the i3 has a lower utilization when using the on board graphics then the Pentium. If you are a gamer looking for a CPU to go with your mid range GPU, just get the G4560, Also this CPU is way too expensive for what your getting.
