Intel Core i3-6300T

The Core i3-6300T is a 2 core CPU from Intel released in 2015. This chip has an average overall score at 28% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is a very good processor for gaming, with a score of 47%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the Core i3-6300T scores 22% and 22% respectively. Indeed, this is an average rating for very heavy workloads.

The Core i3-6300T has 2 cores and 4 threads. This CPU makes use of simultaneous multithreading technology to improve performance on parallel tasks. Each physical CPU core is divided into multiple logical processors. This Intel CPU has a clock speed of 3.3 GHz.

As for memory, the Core i3-6300T makes use of DDR4-1866 memory. The faster the memory, the better. Faster memory means that the CPU doesn't have to wait to get the data it needs. It can accommodate a maximum of 64 GiB of memory. Furthermore, this chip can handle up to 2 channels of RAM, a multichannel memory architecture allows for higher data transfer between the CPU and the memory. However, to take advantage of this, you must have enough memory slots filled. Error correcting memory is supported on this processor.

This CPU has fast connectivity with support for PCI-Express Gen 3. The faster the PCIe link, the better. This allows for better performance with GPUs and NVME SSDs. It has a total of 16 PCIe lanes.

Power and thermals for the Intel Core i3-6300T CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 35 watts. This measures the amount of heat the processor produces when running at full load. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's good estimate.
