Average Bench: 61.9% (517th of 1358)

Based on 36,873 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

2 years ago.

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

5 years ago.

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


Average

19 months ago.

Much slower than a native quad-core, e.g. i5-4570k.
