Core i5-8500 6-Core 3.0GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Intel Core i5-8500 6-Core 3.0GHz is a high-end CPU based on Intel's 8th Gen 14nm, Coffee Lake microarchitecture. It offers 6 physical cores (6 logical), initially clocked at 3.0GHz, which may go up to x.xGHz on a single core using Turbo Boost, or x.xGhz if all six cores are boosted.


It doesn't have an unlocked multiplier, therefore, it can't be overclocked using traditional methods.


It has 9MB of L3 Cache. Level 3 cache is a static memory bank of a processor and it is used to feed it instructions. This processor also supports DDR4 based RAMs with maximum memory support of 64GB.


It has a maximum Thermal Power Design of 65W. It is on par with competitor processors.


Among its many features, Intel Enhanced Speedstep, Turbo Boost 2.0 and Virtualization are activated.


It integrates Intel UHD Graphics 630 on board. It has a base frequency of 350MHz which can go up to 1GHz as well as offering DirectX 12 support.


This CPU is likely to offer decent computational performance and will not be a bottleneck in all but the most CPU-intensive AAA games in 2017.
