Poor

Are you kidding me! the base clock cant even hit 1 ghz. aside from the terrable clock speeds the wattage as the first m processors is OUTSTANDING at its time. but today vthe HD 5300 and the low end M processor. it makes perfect sense for a even thinner ultrabook but today its seen better days and now i think this processor is now fianlly ready to end its old broadwell side and move on to newer Core M3

Pretty good CPU for the low wattage and low clock
