    No. You probably want an extreme one. The processor you mentioned is more geared toward business applications.

    Not for all of the latest games

    for which experts recommend (re: Intel) at least a hex core I7

    (yours is a quad core)

    Note that

    for gaming

    the AMD Ryzens generally (not always) outshine the Intels

    especially when you factor in price.

    Most of gaming is about the graphics processor. Weaker cpus do reduce the frames per second, and the 1% lows make some instability. That cpu was released in 2013, only for old pcs of that vintage. It test scores at 9848, and is OK.

    As a 4 core 8 thread it is not as good as equivalent scoring with fewer cores and threads. Intel Core i3-9100 @ 3.60GHz at 8631 should be almost as good, so between modern i3's and i5's. You need to provide cpu, gpu, and ram amount to know what to expect in gaming. It's an adequate cpu for mid-level graphics cards.

    If you look at requirements for Red Dead Redemption 2, for example, a 2019 game, it's a bit below recommended, but keeps up with a gtx 1650 ti.  https://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=9...
