Core i5-8600T 6-Core 2.3GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Intel Core i5-8600T 6-Core 2.3GHz is a mid-range low power CPU based on Intel's 8th Gen 14nm, Coffee Lake S microarchitecture. It offers 6 physical cores (6 logical), initially clocked at 2.3GHz, which may go up to 3.7GHz on a single core using Turbo Boost, or 3.5Ghz if all six cores are boosted.

It doesn't have an unlocked multiplier, therefore, it can't be overclocked using traditional methods.

The Core i5-8600T has 9MB 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 35W, making it a very power efficient processor.

Among its many features, Intel Enhanced Speedstep, Turbo Boost 2.0 and Virtualization are activated.

It integrates Intel UHD Graphics 630 on board. It has a base frequency of 350MHz which can go up to 1.15 GHz as well as offering DirectX 12 support.

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 2018.
