Way better than the older i3s that were in the old computers my school had.


Excellent

Brilliant CPU for its price range if you're looking for an Intel CPU. It even has enough power to compete with some last-gen i7's (7000/8000 series). Its single core performance is amazing thanks to its 4.4GHz boost clock.
