Core i5-8400T 6-Core 1.7GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Intel Core i5-8400T 6-Core 1.7GHz is a low to mid-range power-efficient CPU based on Intel's 8th Gen 14nm Coffee Lake S microarchitecture. It offers 6 physical cores (6 logical), initially clocked at 1.7GHz across all six cores, rising to a maximum of 3.3GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 enabled.

The i5-8400T does not have an unlocked multiplier and therefore cannot 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. The Core i3-8300T has support for up to 64GB of dual-channel DDR4-2400 memory.

It has a maximum Thermal Power Design of 35W, making it a very power efficient processor.

Among its many features are Intel Enhanced Speedstep, Turbo Boost 2.0, Virtualization, SSE3, AVX2 and SSE 4.2.

This CPU is likely to offer average computational performance and could become a bottleneck in some of the most CPU-intensive AAA games from 2020 onward.
