Not really that good! Very slow, often hits 100% CPU usage. Maybe OK for light usage, but considering how slow it is even for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, I can't really recommend it. It even hung when trying to open Device Manager!

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.

(MAY 2022) what you buy is what you get, have this CPU on my old HP laptop, with a SSD and RAM upgrade 4GB, it works fine for home use witn windows 10 64bit

I have a laptop with this processor and It's trash .

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.

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
