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

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
