This is the BEST Class U processors that you will ever find in a ultrabook. it will surpass a Desktop pentium and even challenge the i3-8100 This CPU also has a pretty high grade intel IGP so it can acieve 720p45 The 90% average of this CPU is also Godly with its quad-core design and considering its not even a 45W chip. Runs on 28W. Sadly , this Powerful CPU is only avalible in the 13 inch macbook pro 2018 and the intel NUC. Dont worry if you think this is too much. you can always go behind for the i5-8259U it still beats every desktop pentiums and has a lower clocked GPU.
