It is a really good laptop gaming cpu next to the i7 7700hq, which can still pull up a decent fight, but if you were able to OC and gaming laptop cpu this might be the best because the i5 7300hq came out at a later date and could probally have updates to programs which possibly could make it better than i7 7700 hq OC, but unfortunately you cant OC laptop cpus.
