I USED THIS CPU FOR GAMING AND VIDEO EDITING IT DOES A GOOD JOB


Good

1 month ago.

i currently using it (since 2012). it's doing great job (but not good for new tasks, such as gaming, streaming)


Poor

22 months ago.

The very old, Arrandale based 2 core 4 thread mobile processor was one of the first gen mobile Core based CPU. While i3 M380 still holds decent for some basic task, the benchmark score shows that this processor may probably struggle to do modern tasks such as advanced word / spreadsheet processing, modern browsing and even more for gaming which makes this not worth using today for some users.
