nibba it has 2 cores and 4 threads which is okay but nibba most modern games need 4 cores reeeeeeeeeeeeee

Comment 

Solid performing CPU, extremely good single and dual core peformance to rival much more expensive processors. Performs brilliantly in general use cases and in gaming with a mid range graphics card to accompany it.—Mar '16
