Quite bad for gaming and as a workstation. Very outdated as a quad core. Luckily I don't do many Crazy Multi-Core intensive workloads.

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.

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.
