Pentium Gold G5500 2-Core 3.8GHz Game Requirement AnalysisThe Pentium Gold G5500 2-Core 3.8GHz is a budget processor based on the 14nm Cofee Lake architecture. It offers 2 Physical Cores (4 Logical), clocked at 3.8GHz and 4MB of L3 Cache. Among its many features, Hyperthreading, Virtualization, and Enhanced SpeedStep are activated. The processor integrates Graphics called Intel UHD Graphics 610 (Kaby Lake), with 24 Execution Units, initially clocked at 350MHz and that go up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode which shares the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor. It will struggle to run the latest AAA games at playable frame rates. Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 51W. Intel's Pentium Gold G5500 3.8GHz offers average to good performance and is classified in the low to middle-class range of processors. This means it will become a bottleneck in some demanding applications, although gaming performance will be largely fine.
