Gets the job done for now, but cannot be updated to Windows 11.

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

Don't use it for gaming, its almost 4 years old and the case is being destroyed (case base lugs cooked and breaking off) by the heat as it is a real laptop. Moral undo and clean the cooling fans at least once or twice a year. It's been a great multi-tasker.

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.

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.

Kinda outdated.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

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.

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

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


Good

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.
