buying old thinkpad with this processor in 2020 , still pretty good for web surfing, watch video streaming, and office stuff after upgrade some ram and ssd. don't expect to play game with this one.

Still pretty fast today.

I'm impressed with this CPU. It is way better (cooler & faster) than the older i7-2760QM that I've been using. But that could also be because of the newer technology in the rest of the laptop/motherboard as well.

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
