Placed nowadays in the Core 2 Quad Q6600 perfomance, with a lower power draw and a lower cache as disvantage its and okay CPU that begans to age. This CPU was shipped in many mid-end prebuilt systems back in 2008. Most AAA games will suffer a poor perfomance when compared to a same clocked first generation desktop Core i5 CPU, if you're considering this as an upgrade the Xeon E5450 or X5450 will deliver higher perfomance for a similar price, check if your system is compatible. [Aug '18 IagoX_009]
