Coffee Lake S
Pentium Gold G5420 2-Core 3.8GHz Game Requirement AnalysisThe Pentium Gold G5420 2-Core 3.8GHz is a budget processor based on the 14nm Coffee 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 630 (Coffee Lake), with 23 Execution Units, initially clocked at 350MHz and that go up to 1150MHz 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 65W. Intel's Pentium Gold G5420 3.8GHz offers good budget performance and is classified in the low-end range of processors. This means it will become a bottleneck in some demanding applications, particularly modern games which rely on multiple cores.
