Average Bench: 51.7% (336th of 1206)

Based on 20,727 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)

Poor

A very weak CPU that most schools purchase to meet the bare minimum of Windows 10. Unable to run 3d games for its integrated graphics and poor value.


Very good

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