Xeon E-2186M and GeForce GTX 980M - General Tasks - 1280 × 800 (WXGA)

Bottleneck calculation for Intel Xeon E-2186M and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M with screen resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels for General Tasks.


Intel Xeon E-2186M is processor manufactured by Intel and launched in Q2 2018 . It's using FCBGA1440 socket. It has 6 cores and 12 threads with clock of 2.9 GHz that can turbo clock itself to 4.8 GHz . This processor is used in Mobile devices and can consume up to 45 watts of power .

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M is graphic card manufactured by NVIDIA and launched in Q4 2014 . It's using PCIe 3.0 x16 bus type. It has core clock of 1038 MHz and 4096 MB (4GB) of memory . It supports DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.5 . This graphic card is used in Mobile devices and can consume up to 100 watts of power .

Calculator result

Intel Xeon E-2186M and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M will work great together on 1280 × 800 pixels screen resolution for General Tasks.

This configuration has 1.5% of processor bottleneck . Everything less than 5% should not be concerned major bottleneck.

Component utilizations

While running general tasks, processor Intel Xeon E-2186M will be utilized 100.0% and graphic card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M will be utilized 98.5% .

Processor bottleneck is worse, than graphic card bottleneck, because utilization of your processor will be on maximum and it will throttle other programs that are ran in background. Also you won't experience maximal performances that your graphic card offers.


You can resolve this by upgrading your processor or by downgrading your graphic card. Downgrading your graphic card doesn't make much sense and in that case is better to leave current graphic card in you computer.
