Core i5-9500 6-Core 3.0GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Core i5-9500 6-Core 3.0GHz is a mid-range CPU based on a refinement of the 14nm++ Coffee Lake microarchitecture. It is identical to the Core i5-9500F except it features integrated graphics.


It offers 6 physical cores (6 logical), initially clocked at 3.0GHz, which may go up to 4.4GHz using 6 cores with Turbo Boost. The i5-9500 has 9MB of L3 Cache. This chip supports up to 128GB DDR-2666 MHz memory and features Intel UHD 630 integrated graphics.


Among its many features, Turbo Boost 2.0, Optane Memory Support, and Virtualization are activated, and its multiplier is not unlocked.


This Core i5-9500 CPU offers above average gaming performance and should not be the bottleneck in any modern gaming PC in 2019. It will be able to play all modern games at 60fps comfortably on ultra graphics performance at any supported resolution without being a hindrance to the accompanying GPU. However, performance may become bottlenecked if playing at 144Hz.
