I want to build a new mini iTX system to save some space (this is my primary goal), right now I have a full ATX desktop built around the i5 2500k CPU.
Now seems like a good time, the new i3 processors look pretty good performance (compared to previous generation i3)
But do you think a system using the i3-8100 processor would be any faster than my current system? At the very least I'd want a small amount of performance improvement.
I would consider the i3-8350K but if I can get a reasonable performance from the 8100 I'd rather save the money.
From passmark website I found the following scores
