Been using a laptop w/ an Intel i7-8565U since December 2019 and it's still plenty adequate for my needs and speedy. No gaming but used heavily for grad school, accounting work, remote connecting and running Windows from work PCs on this. These probably haven't been made in a few years but I wouldn't back away from a used machine with one of these, if the price was low enough and RAM and other specs were suffice.

For small compact notebooks in higher price ranges, it is a beast in most tasks. I love it!

It gets the job done, but don't expect to do anything too intensive on it.

Actually pretty decent cpu for laptops, you might be getting a performance close to a desktop 4700k-6700 with 1/7 the power when is optimized .It's main problem is the heat, burns like hell when in its full range of clock

good for gaming but bad gpu so yeah stonks

Good processor, high performance

It's starting to show it's age, not very good at thermals but with repasting, a bit of insulated pad and a cool environment and it runs at it's best. Will still keep this for the next few years

Better than 8550u

If you havent bought it yet... dont do it. This processor's biggest problem is overheating and thermal throttling then massively underperforming during normal use. Throttle Stop works very well to cut the temperatures down. Undervolt the CPU to get it working normally. I have had no stability issues undervolting -.100mV on Cash and Core. You can raise the single and double thread clock speeds but you need to underclock the 3 and 4 core speeds to prevent overheating.

 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.
