I like it because i can run games smoothly in it.

Good processing speed but not good for heavy gaming. i used it with Nvidia Geforce 940MX 2gb.

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.


Good

it is the cpu i use and it is quite stable


Poor

2 years ago.

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


Terrible

2 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)
