More capable than expected

Andrew B., Newegg
11 November 2014
  • Summary: I used this for a budget HTPC and light gaming machine and am very happy with it's performance. This processor will probably be a bottleneck for upgraders, but runs most current(ish) games fine.
  • Pros: Low power Fast for serial usage Price Stays cool with stock heat sink/fan combo
  • Cons: Limited multithread/core capabilities

Cheap performance.

Manar A., Newegg
24 August 2014
  • Summary: I got this to put into my budget gaming system and I must say that I had concerns but they were silenced. For what it is, a dual core with hyper threading, it performs admirably, running most games without issue, BF3/4, World of Warcraft etc.
  • Pros: Low price, low wattage, emulated quad core (Hyper Threading), good clock speed.
  • Cons: Not a true quad core.

Huh...

  • Summary: Outstanding shock and awe for a budget processor. Recommended for your kids or the budget minded crowd.
  • Pros: Great little cpu. Put em in my kids builds along with a 650GTX and 8Gigs of Gskill. Hoped, well rather thought it'd do well paired up with those for their gaming needs. It's so far exceeded my speculations. Really an outstanding processor. It'll game. Handles Sims/Elder Scrolls titles/Battlefield...
  • Cons: Nope.

Really quite powerful for the price. Sure the 4th ...

  • Summary: Really quite powerful for the price. Sure the 4th generation is out now but that makes these just a bit cheaper. Graphics were greatly improved on the 4th generation so if you care about that type of thing go with those.
