Terrible

17 days ago.

This CPU continues to serve me well. I run PubG on medium settings with a R9 380 and get 60FPS. That said I am looking to upgrade soon and am considering either an i5 8400 or an i5 8600k. I expect whichever I choose will serve me as well as this i5 3330 has done.

This CPU served me well since 2012. Today I'm upgrading to Ryzen 5 1600, as it's lacking performance.


Excellent

it works well for me i have gtx 1050 ti and can reach 40 fps fortnite ultra minimum


Good

2 months ago.

it really suck for most of new games. GTA V with 1060 got FPS real high but stuttering and drop it to 1-5 for short time (or maybe minutes sometime) cant play with happiness and more with other games same problem. in fact i understand this CPU is really old and not a top model even in it's age just wanted to recommend if you want to play high-end game you must pay the price for higher CPU but it's worth you know that
