It's good for a lot of basic tasks like browsing the internet, listening to music, playing 4k(30fps) videos, playing games at low resolutions(with integrated HD 620 Graphics).


Excellent

it's good I have this CPU in my laptop but it is insanely good for web browsing and very light gaming but very overrated


Excellent

With this CPU, You can even run fortnite on 720p low av 40-50 fps and this is pretty underrated. If you can satisfy with what you have then its good

This is an old processor but will play all demand medium games if coupled with a good graphics card.
