Bad, outdated cpu, but it’s mostly used on laptops, which don’t really have a GPU that can assist computing. It can barely handle applications like zoom and chrome. Heats up really quick if you have multiple applications running. Definitely not meant for gaming; even the lightest browser games will result in a error or crash on your pc. Terrible recommended customer price of $107 by Intel. I think it should be around $20

This processor is a legend. only sold as a $66 soldered to the board with robotics arm processor. i doubt anyone payed $107. good mp4 decomp perf at 2.416ghz, intel released update 4885 driver for 18.75% additional speed gain

This CPU is so extremely sad that even if you could overclock it, it just wouldn't be worth it. Struggles to run windows 10. This type of processor belongs in tablets and phones.

Best if you top & run Android on that chip, but bad if you got Windows. Nicely, a near-to-crappy ASUS X553MA holds nice some games, but it will go into the gulag if you try to run any Call of Duty on that chip, or hold more damage if you enters any CSGO's Danger Zone games. Fits only CS:S or 7554, else, any low end or old games only, but hold more than 50 Chrome tabs, this is fine.

Ok for basic use but for anything more than that, it is a disappointment...very sluggish, takes ages to switch Chrome tabs or from Chrome to another app.

no me funciona ni para abrir google chrome o ver el fac

Great for things like chromebooks or mobile devices, bad for desktops and laptops. This was my CPU for more than two years on a crappy Asus x551ma laptop and oh boy...once I upgraded it was a very very different experience.
