Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz is a mid-range desktop CPU based on a refinement of the 14nm++ Coffee Lake microarchitecture. The 9350K is identical to the Core i3-9350KF except it features integrated graphics.

It offers 4 physical cores (4 logical), initially clocked at 4.0GHz, which may go up to 4.6GHz using 4 cores with Turbo Boost. The i3-9350K has 8MB of L3 Cache. This chip supports up to 64GB DDR-2666 MHz memory and features Intel UHD 630 integrated graphics.

Among its many features, Turbo Boost 2.0, Optane Memory Support, and Virtualization are activated, and it features an unlocked multiplier and can therefore be overclocked using traditional methods.

This Core i3-9350K CPU offers good gaming performance and should not be a major bottleneck in any modern gaming PC in 2019. It will be able to play all modern games at 60fps comfortably on ultra graphics performance at any supported resolution without being a hindrance to the accompanying GPU. However, performance may become bottlenecked if playing at 144Hz and 1080p or lower screen resolution.
