The Intel Core i5-8500T 6-Core 2.1GHz has 6 cores that run at a clock speed of 2.1GHz.
It has an L3 cache size of 9MB, an L2 cache size of 1536KB, and an L1 cache size of 384KB.
|Cores||6||More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously|
|Speed||2.1GHz||Clock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family|
|Codename||Coffee Lake S||The code name given by the manufacturers|
|Release Date||02 Apr 2018||The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support|
|TDP||35W||The lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates|
|L1 Cache||384KB||The bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency|
|L2 Cache||1536KB||After L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access|
|L3 Cache||9MB||The L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data|
|Lithography||14nm||The smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use|
|CPU Socket||LGA 1151||The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it|
|Integrated GPU||Intel UHD Graphics 630||The integrated GPU in tandem with a compatible motherboard can provide basic graphical utility without the need of a graphics card|
|Unlocked Multiplier||no||An unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost|
The CPU is over 2 years old, meaning it is based on aging technologies and will not have the level of support that you would find in a newer processor.
Created with lithographic technology sized at 14 nanometers, the Core i5-8500T 6-Core 2.1GHz is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, and with a Thermal Design Power of 35W it also requires very little power to run.
