Excellent

15 months ago.

I have overclocked my Pentium E5500 from 2.8GHz to 3.5GHz. Then I did a CPU-Z benchmark and it got higher score than normal Pentium G2030. I really love this CPU and it is the best overclockable cpu!


Poor

8 months ago.

I have two computers and despite being a dual core, in practical tests it fared much better than the J2900 equipped on the other machine, including the CPU-Z.


Average

16 months ago.

It's awful, but better than Celeron.
