review on the ECS LIVA Z - PCSTATS.com review on the ECS LIVA Z

”The Celeron itself was mediocre at best from my experience. Two cores weren't enough to get a responsive feel while browsing the web. It did however load up Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04 just fine and was snappy in the interface, but using applications or browsing the web showed the true lack of processing power which is a trending subject I keep returning to. This means the N3350 model has very little going for it besides a low entry price point if you are a person who isn't used to waiting. Web pages will eventually fully load and 1080p videos generally play smooth enough, but this may be a deal breaker unless 720p video and basic web browsing is all you plan on doing. Skipping ahead to the N3450 SoC which is also clocked at 1.1GHz, but includes 4 cores, may be the solution to snappier experience. It does have the same HD 500 graphics with 12 Execution Units, so video playback will not change. Simply having two extra cores will alleviate some overhead and should provide an overall better experience browsing the web. Finishing up, the LIVA Z powered by the Pentium N4200 SoC is your best bet for performance. While not cheap, it does have 4 Cores and the HD 505 with 18 Units. It also holds some architecture features found in the Kaby Lake CPU series, making it newer and more powerful than the Celerons running Skylakes HD 500 series. I have an i3 laptop nearly four years old now using the HD Graphics 4000 with 16 Units and it can play 4k video just fine. Therefore, I have no doubt that this Pentium variant will also.”
