i have this and it works like crap


2 years ago.

It's decent CPU for basic usage. It can handle olde games but overheats fast.

Dont underestimate this APU. POINT


2 years ago.

For an APU it's decent.


2 years ago.

It seems like a lot of laptops with this chip heat and throttle very quickly. Owned one in the past and the fact that it has an IGPU on it doesn't help at all. Not like this thing is that powerful anyways; it's kind of in that spot where it's too good for old games but not enough for newer titles.


2 months ago.

As a CPU, it is like a 7th Gen mobile i3. It's integrated graphics little better than UHD 630 of Intel 8th Gen, but weak nevertheless.
