i use it on my laptop for gaming and its not disapointing

Have this on my laptop since 2016/2017 (cant remember well) and it's build like a tank, so damn durable and performs well even by today's standards


Poor

because it's for a laptop so the performance is like an i5 which for the price is a shame

high temps, not best but i like it in DELL 7577

Still a good processor and windows 11 does not support it

I still love this processor in 2020


Terrible

Amo este procesador, me corre cualquier juego a Ultra y sin problemas, no se traba y es perfecto, los 8 nucleos hacen que ninguna tarea se dificulte, tengo una MSi GL72 7rd y es una de las mejores compras que hice, procesador recomendado (i7-7700HQ), :D.

Going to buy this after comparison


Poor

Bad performance with external graphics card.


Good

2 years ago.

I bought it 2 years ago and while it doesn't remain as a particularly efficient and fast processor, it still keeps up reasonably (for laptop workloads it's more than sufficient). If you want good cpu performance it's better to just grab a Ryzen 3600 on the cheap and skip laptops altogether.

It's my processor and he's very fast

Incredible and versatile CPU for both gamers, programmers and everything inbetween

maintains good thermals AND has enough super fast

Kinda outdated. Not bad at gaming at 1080p Medium at new AAA games (when paired with a 1060 6GB Mobile)


Good

Gets the job done for me. If you only do light gaming and editing, it's solid. Do note that it is beginning to show its age in 2021


Good

Great laptop CPU. Can run stuff really smooth without any problem, its a great option for a 7th gen processor, but if you can afford it, go with a 8th generation processor.


Good

Works well but my laptop can't keep up with cooling and often averages 80*c in games.


Good

23 months ago.

Keep cool for max performance because the only problem is on this cpu thermal throttling.I prefer Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut thermal paste to keep cool.
