Core i3-8100H 4-Core 3.0GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Intel Core i3-8100H 4-Core 3.0GHz is a mid-range laptop CPU based on an enhanced version of Intel's 8th Gen 14nm++ Coffee Lake microarchitecture. It offers 4 physical cores (4 logical), clocked at 3.0GHz with no turbo boost capabilities.

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

It has 6MB 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 32GB.

It has a configurable Thermal Power Design, ranging from 35W at 2.6GHz up to 45W for 3.0 GHz. It is on par with competitor processors.

Among its many features are Intel Enhanced Speed Shift, HyperThreading, Turbo Boost 20, and Virtualization Technology.

It integrates Intel UHD Graphics 630 on board. It has a base frequency of 350MHz which can go up to 1.0GHz, as well as offering DirectX 12 support.

This CPU is likely to offer below average computational performance and should be suitable to play most modern AAA games in 2019. It may be the bottleneck for games which favour strong threaded performance.
