Le Core 2 Duo le plus puissant hors Xtrem, on le trouve aujourd'hui à 15€ et il délivre encore pas mal de puissance et est largement suffisant pour une utilisation normale


Poor

this one processor is simply totally better than intel celeron n3350, not only at a low price but it brings a much more high response to games and a daily use.

It will replace a E5300 in a Lenovo MTQ45NK motherboard for $10 without needing to change the PSU. Enough performance for desktop basic use.
