Gets the job done, does more than what you would expect for a 7th gen laptop CPU. Handles reasonable tasks well, and has aged nicely

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.

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.

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.

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.
