Out of the HEDT CPUs out there, this i9 7980XE is king of the hill. Boasting a whopping 18 cores and 36 threads, the 7980XE allows users to multitask even in the heaviest multithreaded applications, pushing the bar for what consumer grade processors are capable of to the absolute extreme. That said, extreme performance comes with an extreme price...

Even though it may be the most powerful CPU in the market, it's not worth it for gaming―unless you want to stream and video render. This CPU will dominate any workstation load, but its single-core performance is much slower than an i7-8700k, i5-8600k, and i3-8350k. So, in a nutshell, this CPU is only meant for hardcore streaming and workstation computers.
