My 10 year old pc has this and it can barely run anything


Excellent

Its good, like its in the middle, not bad, not too good. This CPU is the first bottleneck of my PC. I'm gonna soon move to an Ryzen 3 1200 that is gonna make my GPU go full speed, full potential. That will make the games that I play smoother (I usually play some basic games like, HL2 and GMOD.). I love this CPU. I had this CPU from when I even got my first PC! This CPU is giving me nostalgia how I played GTA:VC on 60 FPS. (I had about 2-4GB of DDR3 ram.) Well, This is the end of this comment about this CPU. Hope you liked it.
