CPU:8th Gen Intel Core i3 8145U
The Intel Core i3-8145U is a power-efficient low-end processor for thin and light laptops and 2 in 1s. The dual-core processor comes with 4 Threads and is based on Whiskey Lake-U architecture. The 8145U has a base clock speed of 2.1 GHz and the clock rate can be turbo boosted to up to 3.9 GHz(one core) or 3.7 GHz(Dual cores). When compared with the previous generation (i3-7020U), the 8145U sees a slight improvement in the L3 cache. Intel has specified a TDP of 15 Watts and depending on the use case this can vary from 7.5 Watts to 25 Watts. The i3-8145U is mostly found in thin and light laptops. The 8th Gen Intel Core i3-8145 U processor comes brings an integrated Gigabit Wi-Fi to mainstream thin and light laptops for the first time which means up to 12 times faster internet speed
The i3-8145U is potentially nearly as fast as i7-7600U. If we are talking about single-core performance you can overall expect a performance similar to that of Core i7-7500U.
The Intel UHD Graphics 620 has 24 graphical units. It is based on Gen. 9.5 architecture based on a 14 nm manufacturing process. It can support 4K at 60Hz with a peak resolution support of 4096×2304 pixels and it can support up to a maximum of three displays with this graphics processor.
When it comes the day to day tasks it is very capable of handling most of them however when it comes to much heavier workloads such a 3D rendering the UHD graphics 620 is not a good solution.
How is the Dell Latitude 3500 for Gaming?
The Intel UHD should be able to handle most modern games that are not very graphic demanding such as League of Legends, Dota 2, Minecraft, CS: GO, GTA 5, and Fortnite. But consider this it only has 5 percent of the benchmark performance when compared with industry-leading Nvidia RTX 3090. The other limitations here include the 60Hz refresh rate and (1366×768) resolution. *These benchmarks are for the Intel UHD graphics.
