Review- Intel Core i3 2120 Processor: More Performance… for a Price


WinZip is a well-known file compression software. The Zip files produced by this program can be password protected using the AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption method. Some new processors are equipped with AES instruction to accelerate this encryption process. Results are measured in the amount of time needed to finish the test. Lower scores are better.

Only few seconds stand between the Core i3-2120 from the Core i3-2100. That’s not the case with the Core i3-540 though, which is left pretty far behind.

Left 4 Dead 2 – The Sacrifice

Left 4 Dead 2 is the sequel to the original Left 4 Dead action game. It’s built around the relatively old source engine which dates back to Half-Life 2 in 2004. However, because it is highly dependent on overall system performance, this game can still be used to measure out the performance of today’s processor.
For our testing purposes, the graphics settings are set to their lowest positions and the resolution is scaled down to 1024×768 to minimize graphics card influence on the final results.

Both Sandy Bridge processors are equally fast in this game, with practically zero performance difference.
