I have a Samsung series 7 Ultrabook NP740u.. It has the i5-3337u and a 8550 radeon graphics card. It did good enough and i even could finish a new game called "Space Element" on it on low 720p.. The limitation appeared with Excel file full of formulas and conditional formatting where the lag started to be noticed..
I bought an Asus referb form Wal-mart with this processor i5-4200u and the HD4400 graphics. I can play World of Warcraft (draenor xpac) on decent settings just fine.
if built with SSD and a 8GB RAM. i believe it will be GOOD enough
Its dual core... so doen't excpect to run newer titles well
using it with my all in one Vaio. Super fast, from gaming to browsing. Absolute pleasure.
I love this CPU.
so far so good
is it actually good for gaming ?
