Budgetary constraints are something which we all have to deal with, especially as PC Hardware becomes more capable and yet more expensive.
We've often mentioned how, if money is tight, you're far better off putting the majority of your budget into your graphics card, as that will bring the most obvious rewards. Today we're putting that to the test with a look at two of Intel's new Skylake Core i3 processors paired up to our regular test bed.
Can you spend so little on your processor yet still reap the benefits of DDR4 and blazing gaming frame rates? Or is the Core i3 and modern physics intensive gaming just too much of a step down from the range-topping models to achieve smooth gaming? Let's find out.
Both of the processors on test today are Core i3 models, and both are dual-core with hyperthreading. We have the i3-6300T, a very low power offering clocked at 3.3GHz, and the i3-6320 which is still frugal on our planets resources whilst being capable of a not-inconsiderable 3.9GHz.
