Benchmarks:

As with the Intel Core i5 2500T, we ran the CPU graphics at the stock speed of the core and again at 1.3GHz.

The 1.3GHz speed was chosen because it's the fastest we could the Core i3-2100 to run, and it makes a good platform to get like for like benchmark figures before we started to overclock the graphics on the Core i7 2600S.
