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

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

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.

Bad performance with external graphics card.


Good

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.

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

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.

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


Good

6 months ago.

it runs well but for moden games it starts to creep and with only 4 cores it's like a i7 960 but mobile it was ok for it's time but i dont recomend it in 2022


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.
