really decent CPU for it's current age and specification. It can handle gaming impressively and it's really good with mid-range productivity workload.


Good

This is a okay H series mobile CPU. 4C 8T CPU with base clock of 2.5Ghzm turbo up to 4.2Ghz. TDP of 45W, maximum down to 35W with 2.0Ghz. Should perform very well when doing daily task. Could handle most of the game with ultra setting, but will going to need a good GPU for that.

 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.
