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.

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

The hell was apple thinking putting this in the 2017 15” MBP, my god this thing is beyond painful to use in macOS Ventura or anything after Mojave for that fact.

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.

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.

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
