It's a pretty decent cpu for being 12 years old at this point. You wont be doing any sort of modern gaming on it, but it would suit for a system to play older games and retro games. I find the iGPU quite useful to have too. It can play older games decently well!


Terrible

3 years ago.

This CPU is absolute trash, worse than notebook CPUs from the time such as the intel i5-3340M. The 6550D integrated graphics is also quite awful, performing worse than a hd 515 intel mobile gpu.
