Core i5-9400 6-Core 2.9GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Core i5-9400 6-Core 2.9GHz is a mid-range CPU based on Intel's 9th Gen 14nm, Coffee Lake refresh microarchitecture. It offers 6 physical cores (6 logical) initially clocked at 2.9GHz, which may go up to 4.1GHz using Turbo Boost.


It does not have an unlocked multiplier and therefore cannot be overclocked using traditional methods.


It has 9MB of SmartCache. Intel SmartCache refers to the architecture that allows all cores to dynamically share access to the last level 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.


The Core i5-9400 6-Core 2.9GHz has a maximum Thermal Power Design of 65W. It is on par with competitor processors.


Among its many advanced features are Intel Optane Memory support, Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 and Virtualization technology.


It Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz features integrated Intel HD 630 graphics with a maximum frequency of 1.05GHz.


This CPU is likely to offer decent computational performance and will not be a bottleneck in all but the most CPU-intensive AAA games in 2019.
