I have been running a system with this processor with 32GB of ram and have a NVIDIA gpu which lets me access all of the ram for system and let me tell you im playing a few games on 1080 res. epic/high settings i believe its a great LAPTOP CPU for just running around depending on your specs it has the possibility to be a low wattage beast THAT YOU CAN USE XTU to tune and push the processor just a little further if needed

MF LAPTOP I PAID 700$ (52K INDIAN RUPEES ) FOR THIS GARBAGE LAPTOP HAVING 2GB GRAPHICS N 8GB RAM BUT I CANT RUN ANY GAMES AFTER 2012 SMOOTHLY....NOT EVEN NFS 2012.. IDONT KNOW WTF TO DO WITH THIS LAPTOP.


Excellent

paired with an ssd and 4gb of ram, there is no thing the processor has failed me. Obviously not talking about gaming, where it can surely hold its own. (business school student here)

As it says for deskwork it is a work hors


Terrible

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).

Lags with blender making dounuts.


Poor

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


Terrible

22 months 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)
