it only has a slight improvement than a i5 2520m and turbo is 100mhz lower than a i5 2520m but if you compare it to a i5 8265u the 8265u is a massive improvement

A good CPU if tweaked is a good gaming setup too.

Its good for light gaming even 3d modeling (if you have a nvidia graphics card) however without any GPU the IGPU is Terrible i also wouldn't consider it as a desktop/laptop without an actual dedicated GPU

It might not be compatible with the new Windows 11 OS but it's as fast as the 8th generation processors!

Good

Not a processor you would want to use for development and gaming overall as it is prone to massive lags (one of the worst processors), so it is best to make a switch to a better processor like those in the 10th Generation range (or the Ryzen series) and retire laptops using this processor (as well as scrapping them).

Love the performance when optimized properly.

Poor

OK for desktop work, light gaming. But not cost effective. The iGPU is a MASSIVE bottleneck for gaming.


Terrible

5 years ago.

This CPU may be an i5, but it is terrible. It can easily be beaten by a dirt cheap coffee lake Pentium Gold. ($60 for G5400, which it is beaten by)
