terrible,very slow,always at 100%

I've got one inside my Toshiba Laptop and its fast.

i have this cpu more then 6 years and it's work very well in 2021


15 months ago.

Its pretty decent cpu for light jobs like browsing, doing homeworks etc.... But it doesnt do well in intense workloads or gaming.


4 months ago.

good for normal office and browser task. also for basic photoshop like cropping and some colour correction. for video editing not so great. can handle very light 1 or 2 timelines but no real time effects/live view.


11 months ago.

some gaming framerates with this are somewhat poor and sometimes laggy on fps games or roleplaying games. still good


5 months ago.

Best processor. I loved its performance.


3 years ago.

the processor is very snappy for day to day use and for doing any business work, (eg, Word typing, Excel, listening to music on you tube or spotify) it is terrible at games though, you can pick up these laptops very cheap now though so i do recommend for just basic stuff.


2 years ago.

this cpu so good for gaming with egpu. i can play any game in 1080p ultra settings 60fps+. this cpu can handles normal tasks very well and heavy tasks this can handles so easy.


3 years ago.

is litlle bit slower for task like non profesional rendering but for browing is maybe I think normal in the border of good


5 years ago.

its an good cpu if you want to do just browsing but other than tath terrible

People will say that it is "poor at gaming", but this may be due to unrealistic expectations with modern games. Or those relying on the pitiful iGPU and expecting discrete GPU performance like a neanderthal. As a Broadwell-U mobile i5 with only 2c/4t, it was never intended to be a gaming CPU but this also it didn't make it the absolute worst. When paired with something as slow as even a 2GB GT 940M, it is still capable enough to play games from the PS3/360 era at 720p-1080p mixed settings. Basically making it a portable console, but with the added bonus of also being a PC. Source: Me. I used to own the Acer Aspire model with said configuration + 8GB RAM & 1TB HDD, and played games like COD WAW, BO1, Dead Space, Borderlands 2, Fallout 3 & NV, and most of the time it was better than the performance on console. Even with no SSD whatsoever. While it may be disappointing to those who have held onto an older laptop with this aged CPU, it is not inherently terrible. It can do more than simply browse the internet or create a Word document. Hopefully this actual detailed response can overtake the heavily biased comment with horrible grammar that's the first thing the entire internet sees during any comparison between this CPU and another one.
