Surprisingly speedy processor, it does the job perfectly for the average laptop user and can even run some basic 3d games quite well. This CPU performs quite well for browsing and non-demanding programs.

GOOD PERFORMANCE WITH RTX 2060

it's a good processor but sometimes my laptop lags. but still good.


Poor

An average CPU that is capable to run games with a decent GPU. The CPU isn't that old for the moment and can do some hefty work.


Good

It's great proccessor trust me it can handle every multi tasking programs and very better than best pentium silver n5000 and although better than i5 7200u . Basicaly 8'th generation of intel is powerful and include new tec. For programming it's more than enough but for rendering and pro editing you should get i5 and i7 with powerful didicated video card


Poor

Its actually great for everything. Its like a swiss army knife, The Intel Core I3-8130U can do everything you want it to but not as fast as an Intel Core I5 or I7


Good

Great bang for the buck. as good as 7th gen i5 or 6th gen i7. I got great deal on laptop with this chip, people don't like i3 but this one is actually good (if 6-7th gen preformance is ok with you).


Terrible

old, bad, just trash in general

Gets the job done in cheap laptops; a regular consumer will be completely satisfied with this CPU.

i use it every day and i have no problems on my laptop. no crashes, no nothing

It's fine for a budget laptop. Can still play 3d games but don't expect much.
