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.
