Was quite mid-high range 3 years ago but now it's on par with the much cheaper Pentium G4560. Shows how fast hardware progresses.

Four years ago this would be nothing to joke about when it went on sale for $110, but now it's starting to show its age. A once budget-midrange processor is now pretty much a G4560
