Core i3-8000 4-Core 3.6GHz Game Requirement AnalysisThe Intel Core i3-8000 4-Core 3.6GHz is a mid-range CPU based on Intel's 8th Gen 14nm Coffee Lake S microarchitecture. It offers 4 physical cores (4 logical), initially clocked at 3.6GHz across all four cores. The i3-8000 doesn't have an unlocked multiplier, therefore, it can't be overclocked using traditional methods. It has 6MB 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. It is on par with competitor processors. The Core i3-8000 has support for up to 64GB of dual-channel DDR4-2400 memory. Among its many features are Intel Enhanced Speedstep, Turbo Boost 2.0, Virtualization, SSE3, AVX2 and SSE 4.2. It integrates Intel UHD Graphics 630 on board. It has a base frequency of 350MHz which can go up to 1.1GHz, as well as offering DirectX 12 support. This CPU is likely to middling computational performance and could become a bottleneck in some of the most CPU-intensive AAA games in 2018.
