Terrible, especialy when ya got it for $48... just like meh :P Kabylake G seem in excluded from Intel's Nasty CPU MicroCode update plan, so it would be easy to raise its performance

Does the job. Paired with a gtx 1050ti it’s a budget gaming beast!

Power saving & Cost saving, since internal graphic HD630 is good enough for normal usages (excepting games).

This is just a G4560 but with a slightly better iGPU. Sometimes they're at the same price because of high demand so I got it. Anyway, this processor is a beast for its price.
