Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz is a low-end desktop CPU based on a refinement of the 14nm++ Coffee Lake microarchitecture. It is identical to the Core i3-9100 except it does not feature integrated graphics.


It offers 4 physical cores (4 logical), initially clocked at 3.6GHz, which may go up to 4.2GHz using 4 cores with Turbo Boost. The i3-9100F has 6MB of L3 Cache. This chip supports up to 64GB DDR-2666 MHz memory.


Among its many features, Turbo Boost 2.0, Optane Memory Support, and Virtualization are activated. It does not feature an unlocked multiplier and therefore cannot be overclocked using traditional methods.


This Core i3-9100F CPU offers average gaming performance in 2019 and may be a minor bottleneck in a modern gaming PC. It should be able to play most modern games at 60fps on High graphics performance at any supported resolution without being a hindrance to the accompanying GPU, although may struggle with the most demanding AAA titles. Performance may become bottlenecked if playing at 144Hz and 1080p or lower screen resolution.
