i love it because i have it lel.


3 months ago.

It's not that expensive, and it's doing its job well! Sure the i5 6600k may be better. But more expensive. so if you are trying to save money but don't want a pc that can't do anything, buy this processor. (Or anything else, i just prefer this,)


2 months ago.

bought with a gtx1070 and is not really compatible


6 months ago.

IPC has greatly improved since the first gen. The only point where it's lacking is in it's number of core where it has only 2 cores and 4 threads.

expensive..... but it does the job

It's fast, economic and maybe isn't the best but is something to buy and be happy
