got this in my old laptop, beat out the ryzen 2400g in my desktop at the time, good cpu


17 months ago.

Able to play most titles and most day to day tasks. Handles Minecraft quite well, even with some moderately complex mods. Struggles a bit with Conan exiles, maxed out before the 8GB RAM or GTX 1050 (mobile). Handles Microsoft word like a champ! Would definitely benefit from more RAM, but still does alright with this setup.
