seems underpowered. in a asus vivobook flip 14. especially when compared to my 8 year old xps with intel i5 m480 chip. which still works admirably well. I will upgrade the ram from 4G and see if it handles better put its a real struggle to do limited multi tasking.


Poor

1 month ago.

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


Excellent

3 months ago.

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


Excellent

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

2 months ago.

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).
