Decent Core! I got it in a refurbished laptop, and it runs pretty well! I do need to put in optimization mods for the games I play, (and I don't play any of the newer games) but it runs pretty smoothly doing work on it! Refuses to Upgrade to Windows 11, but I don't care, I prefer windows 10 at the moment and I will need time to warm up to windows 11 from 10 like I did with 7 to 10. Also I'd need a new PC or CPU to do that.
