Intel Celeron N3350 Basic Laptop Processor

The Intel Celeron N3350 is an entry-level processor (CPU) for notebooks. It can be found in various inexpensive laptop models. With its two computing cores, maximal clock speed of 2.4 GHz, and 2MB of cache, the Celeron N3350 provides very basic performance. It is suitable only for non-demanding routine computing tasks. For instance, light web browsing, work in text processing programs, or multimedia playback. The N3350 can run only the lightest casual PC games.

Intel Celeron N3350 Benchmark

Intel Celeron N3350 Benchmark

The N3350 is on the bottom of laptop CPU benchmark score lists. Nevertheless, it is capable of completing the aforementioned daily computing tasks. But, program and system responsiveness is noticeably better on the mainstream processors like the widely adopted Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 series, or even the budget-class Celeron quad-core (as opposed to dual-core N3350), Intel Pentium, or AMD A-series chips.

On the positive side, the N3350 has a very low power consumption of 6 Watts, as opposed to 15W of the common Intel Core i-series mainstream chips. This means the N3350 is battery-life friendly and that it runs pretty much cool. Of course, battery life of each laptop will primarily depend on battery capacity. CPU power consumption is just one of the major factors for battery life length. As for heat dissipation, the N3350 is among the coolest running notebook CPUs on the market. That allows completely fanless and therefore completely quitet laptop designs, which aren’t possible with faster and hotter mainstream notebook chips.

But, the best “feature” of the N3350 is its low price. It enables very affordable pricing of notebooks. Laptops with it usually start at only $200.

Note: The benchmark scores of the listed processors are averages measured across various devices with these processors. The scores and real-world performance of the Intel Celeron N3350 and compared CPUs may vary depending on the notebooks' other components, settings, cooling, and other factors. However, the benchmark results are good indicators of the processors' performance.

  1. Question


    HOW TO ORDER Intel® Celeron® Processor N3350
    2M Cache, up to 2.40 GHz


      where and how to order that processor? I need to upgrade my processor only 1.10ghz u to 2.4ghz to boost the speed

    • Dan

      Actually, the processor can boost itself to 2.4GHz if a task requires the higher speed. 1.1GHz is the basic speed that saves battery power and can go up under a heavier computing load. By the way, the processor isn’t upgradeable.

  2. Question

    ji Tul

    Can Photoshop and Camtasia be used on the Intel Celeron N3350 processor?

    • Daniyal

      Yes they will, but they will run pretty slow.

  3. 5 out of 5 Fanless = noiseless therefore great for audio recording


    I needed a cheap quiet machine for barebones audio recording. Stipped it down to OS and minimum graphics and it speeds up alot.

  4. 4 out of 5 Usable


    I have been using a PC with intel Celeron n3350 for 4 years. So far the performance is somewhat tolerable. I was able to play games like portal 1 and 2 with the resolution being low whilst keeping effects in medium. Browsing is fine as long as I have enough ram space. However, google meet with visual effects does lower its performance at least on the preview not the entire screen. Overall this processor is okay for daily use. You just have to upgrade your PC from HDD to SSD as it can significantly improve performance in terms of opening programs and boot time. Don’t forget to upgrade your ram as well because windows 10 cannot run normally under 2gb.

    • Irena Stokes

      How do I install this on a windows 10 when it has been update already?

  5. Childs


    Nah. It even fails to browse. It fails at everything. You open the lightest of tasks and the CPU usage jumps to 100%, for sure it could jump to even 300% if it could. Oh, and don’t get me started on how long it takes to boot, or for the start menu to respond, but worst of all, opening a picture for viewing will take the same amount of time as making a cup of coffee.

    • Dylan

      Well I guess its fine in a chromebook its reasonably snappy but I could imagine if it was in a windows laptop it would be slow.

    • no-better-name

      you’d need to install a lightweight OS, like some Linux distro. i have a Debian laptop with this CPU and it runs well, i can even work in graphics editing programs like Krita

    • Vikas

      Can I we use tor browser in chromebook?

    • Dan

      It is a very basic processor, but it can be used for web browsing. However, it won’t be as fluid as on laptops with the popular processors like the Intel Core or AMD Ryzen series.

    • Daniyal

      Actually, it can run faster than some Core i3 processors, you just have to mess around with the BIOS/UEFI & Window 10 settings and you have to delete unnecessary files and uninstall the apps that you don’t use. I personally use iobit uninstaller to uninstall apps. Here is the link to install the program >>

  6. Question


    i have acer aspire es 14 celeron n3350 cani upgrade my processor plz reply me

    • Dan

      No, unfortunately. Modern laptop processors, including the N3350, aren’t upgradeable.

    • Arman

      Thanks bro

  7. Question


    I have ES1-432-C9B6(Intel HD , N3350 , 4GB DDR3) , what games can i run ?

    • Sandeep

      N 3350

    • fuck off

      You can’t dumbass

    • no-better-name

      you can emulate NES and SNES games. there’s also the first Half-Life

    • kay

      you can play game that is on mircosoft store, i play asphalt 9 on my n3350 processor and it fine but graphic set to low and medium

  8. 5 out of 5


    Thanks, it’s good to know the 3350 clip is still capable of handling computing tasks. I bought a Chromebook for my mum, hopefully, it will serve its purpose of daily browsing

  9. 5 out of 5


    Hi im noel me i ask may loptop is aspire Es14 ES1-432-C65J intel celeron processor n3350 memory is 2gb .my question is compatible upgrade to 4gb yes or no ? if yes why? If no why? Thank you

    • KofeZ

      Yes, you will be able to handle more tasks as programmes uses ram as a temporary fast storage and the more you have the more processors can be stored for your programm processing needs..

    • Ben

      you’ll want more than 2GB of RAM. RAM is just as important as the CPU. Here is a good example of what you can get and still keep it budget minded. Plus, it’s got a 1080 screen (most of the budget Chromebooks are 720). Good luck!



    • KofiZ

      It means that you have an option to upgrade components of the laptop, and most common is the memory and storage while the CPU and GPU is soldered, as future compatibility of those components tend to be change quickly working requiring different sockets for them thus, a newer motherboard. It is possible to upgrade soldered on CPUs and GPUs but it is best to buy a newer laptop with much better performing components. Doesn’t solve the problem of needing newer hardware later down the road, not that you will need to upgrade because every new component doesn’t boost performance so significantly each time that you will need to upgrade. For e.g. and upgrade from a GTX 1060 to RTX 2060 is good but the GTX 1060 still performs well over what most people may want as it most of the triple A tittles at 1080 Medium to High settings with above 60, while the RTX adds support for Ray Tracing and performs better to support that Ray Tracing as it requires optimal hardware, while upgrading from a 960m to a 1060, is noticeable a good upgrade as the 960m can already play AAA titles at 1080p well, while the 1060 just destroys the 960m making it look inferior, which is average to be about 2x better in performance. That’s all hope you understand.

    • KofiZ

      Still, most Games don’t support Ray Tracing, which laptops with RTX GPUs are more expensive then the 10th Gen GTX Series GPUs

    • KofiZ

      So it may not be necessary to upgrade as of right now

    • Frazer

      It’s very rare (nearly unknown) to have a laptop with an upgradable GPU, Normally laptops you can add more RAM or change the hard disk. This Processor is for light gaming, so I’d imagine a browser based one would be fine but not a lot else, its more for low power consumption office/browsing.

    • Gogolara

      Imam isti ovakav procesor i 4 gb rama, oko 500 gb memorije i igram csgo bez problema vec 2 mjeseca i u zadnje vrijeme cim udjem u lobi toliko koci da ne može nijedna funkcija da radi pa moram na dugme laptop da gasim. Isao sam u stim i proveravao sigurnost fajlova nekad mi pokaze 1, 2 stetna nekad 0 ali uvijek kad udjem je isto, da li je razlog procesor i bili trebalo da ga izbrisem. Hvala
