Packed with 4 Cores and 8 Threads with max speed of 3.4 Ghz, this little fighter is comparable to an i7-7700HQ (which is a high-end mobile CPU from last generation), not bad considering it was a low to mid end chip and carries 15W TDP. Can be found with laptops starting from 550$.

This CPU has Inconsistent behavior! i bought an ideapad 320 with this CPU and then i sold it after 2 weeks! its inconsistent behavior is obvious in its benchmark chart! i head to buy a Ryzen Laptop!

High temperature, around 50 C when it does nothing, and around 55-60 C when does some usual simple work or navigating in social webs.

Don't understand the hate on this chip, for a laptop CPU it's pretty nice

Best buy in 2018. Not most expensive, but with real 4 core it can work very hard, only if you want! I can work as a developer (from AC, in office) or as a journalist. Away from power in the nature.
