Intel Core I3 Gaming PCs

Refract Amber Gaming PC

At Overclockers UK we stock a wide range of fully customisable and pre-built Intel Core i3 gaming PCs. When paired with cherry-picked gaming hardware and exceptional build quality, these PCs are perfect for casual gamers and multitasking. As the i3 series is more efficient than higher-end CPUs, they can be kept at optimum temperatures through smaller cooling solutions. Whatever you use an Intel Core i3 PC for, you can expect reliable, quality performance with every session.

Intel Core i3 Gaming Processors

A great CPU is critical to any gaming PC. With an Intel Core i3 processor at the heart of your gaming PC, you can enjoy the latest in high-performance technology. The advent of Alder Lake, Intel’s twelfth generation, brings innovations such as PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 support to your gaming PC.

As Intel’s entry-level processor, the Core i3 is designed for casual gaming and multitasking.

Alder Lake

Alder Lake is Intel’s latest CPU architecture and comes with many advances in technology to make your gaming PC run smoother. The biggest advance is in the design of the cores utilised by these CPUs, utilising two types of cores for different workloads. To begin with there are the Performance cores, these are similar to the cores used by previous generations that are perfect for high-frequency single-threaded tasks. Alongside this are the new Efficiency cores that, while less powerful, are able to take charge of lighter background processes freeing up the Performance cores for the more important tasks, like running your favourite AAA games.

Earlier Generations

Thanks to their performance potential, a number of our gaming PCs do use earlier generations of Intel Core i3 processors. Both Rocket Lake (11th gen) and Comet Lake (10th gen) can keep up with modern gaming titles and handle the multitasking demands of your creative software. The benefit of opting for an earlier generation is they tend to be at a lower price point. So, if you need the power but are on a budget, then they are an excellent choice.

Entry-Level Gaming

The Core i3 is Intel’s entry-level processor, perfect for casual gaming. An Intel Core i3 gaming PC is great for those looking to take their first steps into the PC gaming sphere. Pair with other gaming hardware, such as a dedicated GPU, and you can achieve some amazing visuals on popular titles. For peace of mind, Overclockers UK offers a selection of services to get you gaming quickly and for longer. With next day delivery available on select models, you’ll be playing your favourite titles in no time. Plus, our 3-year parts and labour warranty means you don’t have to worry about anything going wrong.

Intel Processor Features

Hyper-Threading Technology

Certain Intel Core i3 gaming PCs are capable of hyper-threading. To establish whether your desired CPU is hyper-threaded, be sure to look up the processor number on Intel’s website. Hyper-threading allows a processor core to act as two virtual cores by assigning individual tasks to multiple ‘threads’ simultaneously. A thread is essentially a stream of data that a processor core must normally process individually. Hyper-threading reduces the processing time by allocating tasks to separate threads.

This technology is ideal for gaming because it optimises the speed at which your processor can run and even allows for improved multitasking performance. Perfect for those who stream live on Twitch.

Turbo Boost

Intel Turbo Boost Technology provides another strong advantage to your Intel Core i3 gaming PC. It effectively boosts the clock speed of the CPU when faced with demanding tasks, such as gaming or video editing. Turbo Boost technology takes advantage of surplus processing potential by reallocating it to a thread with a high workload.

Processor Cache

The role of the processor cache in gaming is sometimes underrated, yet it is key to high-level performance. The cache is a bank of memory built into the processor, used to store copies of data from the RAM of your computer. This allows it to perform often repeated tasks much more quickly than usual, since it has immediate access to the necessary data. Therefore, the bigger the cache, the better the performance. An Intel Core i3 PC has an abundance of cache memory and is therefore ideally suited for gaming applications.
