— A decent CPU, however, stuck inside the smaller chassis of the Alienware 15 R3 (2017) it continually thermal throttles. This makes the main positive aspect of this chip, being unlocked, pretty much useless as the temperatures will rise too much for overclocking to be useful. Even without overclocking this chip runs very hot. Only recommended for 17 inch sized laptops.

— 16GB of DDR4 RAM @2667MHz is great for gaming.

— 6 cores are very useful, and competitive clock speeds make this CPU great for gaming. Watch out for high temps in smaller laptops though.

— Okay performance for a laptop CPU.

— Terrible CPU. Runs hot constantly. 100 degrees Celsius under medium/heavy load isn't uncommon for this CPU.

— Used to be my main GPU in the early 2010s. While it cannot run the majority of modern titles (2013-present) it's a decent GPU for retro gaming at sub-1080p resolutions. Arkham City ran decently on it on medium settings at 900p.

— A decent discrete graphics card for small form factor laptops. Decent performance in 1080p gaming at medium to high settings depending on the game.

— Fantastic card for medium sized laptops with very good overclocking potential. This card remains relevant as a high end GPU for 1080p performance even in 2019.
