How much can an i3-2100t handle?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm currently planning an HTPC build, and have been considering the i3-2100t (using the integrated graphics). However I am wondering if it will be powerful enough for my needs.

I am planning on storing videos on the HTPC as well as receiving and recording TV broadcasts, and plan on getting a tuner card with 2 DVB-S2 ports as well as a single DVB-T2 port. This would allow up to 4 simultaneous recordings.

So the question is - would a 2100t be able to handle 1080p playback AND up to 4 recordings at once? And if not, how many would it likely be able to handle?

I was recently running an i3-2100 (I know it is a bit different from the 2100t but still similar) and had no problem with 1080P playback while running multiple processes at once. It was even able to handle some games like SC2, albeit at lower settings... but my AMD that had onboard graphics on the mobo could not handle this.

i know it is a useless stat, but my WEI was exactly the same with my i3-2100 and my i5-2300. for an HTPC, the i3-2100t should be more than enough... they are sweet little powerhouses

hope this helps.
