I dunno. I have the i3 6100H in my Dell XPS 15 Ultrabook and I'm able to mono task decently enough as well as have many web tabs open at a time in my browser, playing music, connected to an external monitor over HDMI without so much as a slow down. It works well enough for me since my daily driver revolves around basic multimedia like ( YouTube, Windows Media Player, Bluetooth streaming to my Stereo ) usage as well as using applications like Visual Studio. I've never seen much of a hiccup doing all of these things simultaneously and I love it. So I wouldn't shy away from getting a notebook that has the i3 6100H if you're in the market for an all round daily driver. However, when it comes to gaming, you need to look elsewhere.
