The Core i3-7100U is a dual-core mobile CPU from Intel’s Kaby Lake family of chips. It’s a direct successor to the Intel’s Skylake generation Core i3-6100U but since the difference between the Kaby Lake and Skylake architectures isn’t big, the expected performance jump is marginal. Both, the Core i3-6100U and Core i3-7100U, are built using 14nm FinFET manufacturing process.
The Core i3-7100U retains the same features as before, such as the so-called Hyper-Threading technology allowing the CPU to work with 4 threads instead of using just the two physical cores. The newer alteration of the CPU is also rated at 15W TDP but offers a small 100 MHz clock jump compared to its predecessor. Now the base frequency is 2.4 GHz and still no support for Turbo Boost.
