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,)


Poor

bought with a gtx1070 and is not really compatible


Terrible

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.
