mine works worse than a cheap chromebook at school.


Poor

I have used this cpu for 3 years now and it dosent load games well, and really never did. If you plan to build a pc for gaming, dont buy this processer.


Excellent

4 years ago.

Similar to a i3 7100 in tests, and likely pair-able with a 1050 with no issues.


Excellent

This little thing may be cheap, but it is a BEAST! It beats the 7th gen i5-7200, which is more expensive and "superior."


Good

I'd rather have bought Ryzen in 2018...


Excellent

cheap but good processor for Low-HD gaming (with geforce 400+ cards its ultra cheap monster) 2 cores 4 threads is justifies himself price / quality


Good

It's good since I have been using it for a month.
