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.
