Excellent

18 days ago.

Upon writing this review today, Dec 2021, this CPU can easily play most modern games with a simple overclock. For the price it can be had now, $30USD used, it is a great deal for those planning to upgrade their X58 builds. You'd be surprised with what this thing can do. Recommended for those planning on refreshing their builds without breaking the bank. Good replacement for the famous i7-920 or 950.

A very good Xeon budget CPU! The only flaws are its age and 64-core speed
