10th generation Comet Lake processor...

This CPU has great performance but right now stands at almost £300 consistently. If the price of this CPU was to come down, it would be a steal.

Great if you need maximum single-core speed. But quite expensive and difficult to find, and power-hungry especially under overclocking.

This thing just crushed ryzen hope and dreams
