Es casi lo mismo no hay gran diferencia ja pero estan bien
não vale a pena um upgrade neste caso! 4170 mete bala nos games aqui
Ele não é muito diferente do i3 6100, a diferença se dá basicamente pela litografia, que mesmo assim nem impactou muito no consumo, e que o 6100 usa memórias DDR4 (sendo que umas placas mãe do soquete dele, 1151, são compatíveis com DDR3 ).
Tenho o i3 4170 e estou gostando muito.
