Despite it's age, this little processor still chugs along just fine in 2021, while offering decent battery life in laptops, if configured properly. Coupled with discrete graphics, it can still pull it's own weight in heavier tasks, such as video editing and using CAD software.

Very slow in Dell Latitude E7450

works really good for such an old laptop cpu, will soon be installing a egpu for improved performance

Exceptionally good laptop CPU. It has aged well. The only thing holding it back is typically the Intel HD 5500 graphics, which are meh at best.

Works like a charm, plays less demanding games just fine
