Poor

12 days ago.

Excellent CPU, been using for 2 years for heavy gaming as well as work and it has stood up very well. Only downside is that it gets very hot while gaming, pushing 97-99C during sometimes. But other than that, its a great all rounder for the price.


Terrible

1 month 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.
