What most of these comparisons fail to realize or to factor is the fact that this CPU has an unlocked multiplie and willconsistently run at 4.0 GHz under stock thermal solution and at 4.1 stable for my tower of power...it's not a beast but for a build i literally spent 25.bucks on altogether sourcing from secondhand stores I'm not complaining.

Is pretty amazing tbh, passed the test of time and survived much more than it should have ever had to deal with.

Still faster than most laptops despite its age. More suitable for winter than summer though...

Utilizandolo ahora en pleno 2019, sinceramente calienta mucho y su consumo es elevado, aun asi acompañado de 16 gb de ram y una hd7950 no hay juego que no juegue con todo full en HD o algunos caso FHD

Terrible bottleneck in gaming, not fast enough in rendering. Fake eight core advertising, I wish I knew that before buying.
