Average Bench: 54.3% (279th of 1110)

Based on 10,391 user benchmarks.  Devices: BFEBFBFF000306C3, Model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4150 CPU @ 3.50GHz

The Intel Core i3-4150 is successor to the i3-4130 2013 Haswell processor. Looking at the 4150 and 4130 side-by-side shows that the only difference between the two processors is a 100 MHz base clock increase from 3.4 GHz on the older 4130 to 3.5 GHz on the newer 4150. The marginal 2.9% clock speed increase brings an equally marginal performance boost. Despite the academic performance gain over it's predecessor, thanks to its excellent single-core performance, the i3-4150 is still an extremely capable desktop CPU and will handle the vast majority of regular desktop computing without breaking a sweat. Coupling the i3-4150 with a discrete GPU will satisfy all but the toughest of gaming requirements. Only the lower powered but significantly cheaper Pentium G's offer better value for money[Jun '14 CPUPro]

excelente procesador para emulación PS2, si lo tienen no lo vendan o cambien a no ser que necesiten un multicore (i5-ryzen, etc)

It does the job, and it was dirt cheap, so it's worth it.
