Good, but the integrated video is not good for 3d games like minecraft, which is in the 47 fps range, but apart from that it is much faster than life's ryzen 3 pro 3300u and ryzen 5 2500u, and it's very economical with TDP 15W

If there is cold, then the Turbo Boost is awesome.

I like it a lot, it's in my first laptop, which I got new. While it doesn't get to it's max turbo ever, except if I benchmarked in a fridge and made power limit non-existent, it's still great for minor gaming, photo editing, etc. The igpu isn't the greatest, but it's alright for everyday tasks.
