Core i7-8706G 4-Core 3.1GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Intel Core i7-8706G 4-Core 3.1GHz is a high-end CPU based on Intel's 14nm Kaby Lake G microarchitecture. It offers 4 physical cores (8 logical), initially clocked at 3.1GHz, which may go up to 4.1GHz using Turbo Boost.


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


It has 8MB 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 (including the onboard GPU). It is a fairly power efficient processor.


Among its many features, HyperThreading, Turbo Boost 2.0 and Virtualization are activated are enabled.


It features Intel HD Graphics 630 integrated GPU with 350MHz base clock and turbo boost frequency of 1.15GHz. Video memory will depend on the amount of RAM paired with CPU but maximum limit is 64GB. In addition, the Core i7-8706G 4-Core 3.1GHz features a Radeon RX Vega M GL dedicated Graphics processor. It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 29 Compute Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 931MHz and goes up to 1011MHz in Turbo Mode. The GPU utilises its own onboard HBM2 memory. Radeon RX Vega M GL has 4GB of second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, clocked at 1.4Gb/s. Sat on a 1024-bit memory interface, this provides total memory bandwidth of 179.2GB/s. The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.


This Intel Core i7-8706G CPU is likely to offer excellent computational performance and will not be the bottleneck in any modern gaming PC.
