Has powered my souped up T430 for several years. Combined with an EGPU it turns a nearly ten year old business laptop into a machine that can game or churn through workloads like a champ. Only replacing it as the machine MOBO is starting to go and it no longer makes sense to upgrade.

Still a great processor in 2021, just love it

Had this for almost 8 years now, its fire!!

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.

still survive even though it's been 5 years of use

very fast and powerful, it gains with any processor of the U series, even if new

i have this cpu on my lap top for 7 yrz and i played some of new games on it well. it sometimes make me crazy but its fast enough. (its my best friend since 7 yrz ago :) )

i also have i7 3632qm with hd 4000, That laptop is the beast compared to my old pentium n5000 laptop, it is also did a great job for gaming like minecraft and csgo.

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

powerful and still better then most recent AMD cores

Some games working better with that processor
