good for gaming without clocking pair with better gpu such as gtx1070

The best CPU you can get for a killer gaming computer, it does it all. True, you cant overclock it, but the power it already has will give anyone 70 fps+ at any game with a capable GPU.

low perfomance for that price

lower core & thread

Brilliant performance for low powered ITX future proof gaming


3 months ago.

I think the performance is impressiv for gaming as well as other stuff. It has very good thermals if you count in the performance it gives. Also you can overclock it with a z170 mainboard which makes it a great deal.
