very cheap yet very good, the best value out of 1150 socket cpus


Excellent

2 years ago.

At ~45€ from eBay, this chip makes the most sense if you're upgrading your Haswell build. Everything else costs way more just because it has an iGPU or can be overclocked, but a purchase of a 150€ 4770K really goes against all reason with parts like the 150€ 12100. I upgraded to this from my old i5-4440, which I have owned since launch. The extra frequency (locked through BIOS at 3.6 GHz compared to the i5's 3.2 GHz) and extra threads make a visible difference even in applications where you wouldn't expect it, but mostly in applications that make use of one or the other. Thanks to this server chip, my 2013 Haswell build lives slightly longer yet, albeit with only a few parts still original to the first build all these years ago.

 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.
