Hi guys.

I have an Acer Aspire 3
512GB SSD
i5 - 10th Gen
Quad core
Windows 10
12GB Ram

Theres 2 Ghz amounts under info.
@ 1.60GHz 2.11 GHz

What does this mean?
And will the laptop play games like Overwatch comfortably or will I have performance issues?

Thanks.

Think one of them is the overclocked speed.

What Graphics Processor?

Ah, so it's not a dedicated GPU.
Dont think it's meant for gaming, those more in the know will hopefully answer you further.

You can do a quick check if your system can run some game from this site (I have used it in the past) but I also don't think that your laptop's integrated GPU should be used for GPU intensive gaming but some games are more CPU intensive than others so you might try and play those.

Overwatch should run at 30 to 50fps on low graphics settings, depending on screen resolution. Playable but not ideal.

1.6GHz is the base clock speed. 2.11GHz is the TDP-up frequency, and it turbos at 4.1GHz. I got that from here https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/195436/intel-core-i5-10210u-processor-6m-cache-up-to-4-10-ghz.html

You are also lumped with an integrated GPU. Those aren't really built for gaming.

You are probably stuck with putting everything as low as it can go to get stuff running at payable frame rates, but on the bright side, you have a good study / work / media laptop.
