Intel U300 Entry-Level Laptop Processor

The Intel U300 is an entry-level laptop processor. It’s an adequate choice for the daily computing tasks. It is not as fast as the mainstream Intel Core chips like the i3-1315U and especially the i5-1335U and i7-1355U from the same U-series family. That can slow down heavier computing like video editing on laptops with the U300. But, during light computing like web browsing, emailing, and office document editing, the difference won’t be very noticeable.

The Intel U300 offers very basic graphics processing and 3D gaming performance, so it is suitable only for light gaming. The U300 features the Intel UHD integrated graphics, which is weaker than the Intel Iris Xe of the Core i5 and i7.

The main AMD’s competitor against the Intel U300 are the AMD Athlon series chips.
