9th Gen Intel® Core™ processors are designed with gamers in mind and should be marketed to those who are interested in having state-of-the-art entertainment, gaming, and streaming devices. Gamers are often concerned not only with visual graphics, but also the speed of the rendering, as frame rates directly impact their enjoyment of the game.
