Great CPU, clocked @ an impressive 3.6 GHz, efficient power consumption, decent single core speed, great for demanding single/double threaded tasks. Runs Windows 10 with ease. Affordable during its purchase and during its usage. Unless you have a GTX/Vega and over 6GB of RAM, it's not this CPU that's going to be the bottleneck. A major improvement from Intel's Core 2 Duo E6400 (which is still a fine CPU). In other words, old but gold and still competitive for most tasks.
