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


Terrible

terrible cpu it performs like a banana


Good

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


Average

Terrible cpu. It even slower than i7 7500u, which also a terrible cpu. Also this is a i5. but it prone to weak when use blender/gaming


Good

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


Excellent

As it says for deskwork it is a work hors


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).


Good

3 years ago.

it is the cpu i use and it is quite stable


Poor

3 years ago.

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


Terrible

3 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)
