The i3-6300T is a mini/laptop version of a 6th generation Intel Core i3 processor, with a benchmark score of 5,204.
The specs show its single-threaded (per-core) performance should be only slightly slower than a modern desktop computer's Quad-Core CPU.
It is dual-core, not quad-core found in most desktop computers, but that only means its gaming and multi-tasking performance will be slower.
So, it's a very powerful little computer that can easily hook up to any monitor or HDTV.
