Still a great processor in 2023, just love it

great CPU, still better then most in budget or mid segment - 7 years later! BTW- UPDATE your records - I bought the system with this CPU in December of 2012, so it was released definitely earlier than that.

in 2023 still this CPU is outperforming than some new CPU rivals.After adding 16gb of ram 500gb ssd and egpu My Laptop is superfast and played latest & AAA Modren games like Red dead redeption on 60 fps its still great and value for money,

best 3.gen 35w CPU, can run modern games with EGPU thanks to its turbo boost
