Plays some good ol' games well, and that's really all you need.


Good

I think intel pentium its better


Poor

3 years ago.

Terrible CPU by 2020 standards, and mediocre CPU by 2014 standards. This was the CPU in my all-in-one PC that I've bought in 2014 and I've never really had a decent experience with it.
