Expert Review

This is a really nice processor that has some tremendous potential for overclocking, due to its design and initial performance. Right out of the box it runs at 3.5GHz with turbo frequencies up to 3.9GHz and has 6MB of cache memory. If you spend some time overclocking this one, you can definitely get it up to 4.5GHz or higher. This is only a four-core processor so you probably won't see it outperforming the most high-end CPUs on the market. For applications that only use up to four cores, such as many PC games, this is a great choice that runs beautifully. The 22nm design of this processor from Intel is great for mobility and low power consumption which leaves you with more power for overclocking. It includes a heatsink and fan, but you might want to utilize liquid cooling once overclocked.Rating: 4.25/5
