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.

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
