    Title is self-explanatory. This old processor is clocked at 2200Mhz and has 2 threads and cores. Would this run beam at all?

    Run? Probably. You'll get a notification at startup reminding you a quad core CPU is required for optimal performance.

    Game will likely be unplayable though.

    Yeah, certainly. This old pos needs to go. Almost every game is unplayable except maybe games from 2000's.

    BeamNG will look like a slideshow on that. Single digit FPS, if it even runs. Also, GPU wise, you probably won't even be able to run the latest version.

    minimal system requirements are: i3-6300 or fx-6300, pentium B960 is 200% slower then i3-6300, so...

    Oh yes, perfect is (from Intel) is i5-9400f or i3-9100f (It hasn't integrated graphics). This is my opinion, or you can wait for i5-10400f (it's going to be released in may)
