rather poor performance as well as high power consumption, uses more power than an A4-5000 yet somehow performs slower than it, even though it's not clock-limited...

A very respectable and capable mobile CPU. I have no complaints about it, it does what it's supposed to and only starts to struggle with really heavy loads. Obviously it's no Xeon, but it's pretty good for what it is. Most of the time it idles at around 45-55C in my Dell XPS 15 9560.


Average

Decent performance, very similar to the older desktop i5-6400 but scaled down to 45w since it's a mobile CPU. The 3.1Ghz all-core turbo may be it's weak spot, however, it's relatively good single core performance & IPC makes it still capable of handling (most) games. Overall desktop performance for browsing, media playback, etc, is perfectly fine. It appears to struggle more when paired with a mobile 1060 or higher, leaving the best choices for a laptop configuration being a 1050 / 1050 Ti. It's immediate successor, the i5-8300h, offers hyper-threading and a substantially higher turbo frequency, making it even better than the i7-7700hq from the same generation as this chip. The only way to justify getting a laptop with this cpu in 2022 would be if it's very cheap (used/refurbished), otherwise those interested in a more "long term" solution would be advised to opt for an 8th gen or newer mobile i5. It is now 5 years old, and for those who currently have one and are seeking to upgrade, newer 11th or 12th gen based machines will offer plentiful uplift for the money. Older parts like this are mainly just for those on a very tight budget, or only want a modest laptop that can be used as a HTPC/previous gen console alternative.
