3.1 GHz as the Maximum on this CPU is just too low. There's no way to get real workstation-performance Out of it. However, as a Gaming Chip, it is probably enough for the next 2 or more years.

Been using it for a few years in my laptop and it has been keeping up with most games and still runs quite stable
