Still a great processor in 2021, just love it

Had this for almost 8 years now, its fire!!

great CPU, still better then most in budget or mid segment - 7 years later! BTW- UPDATE your records - I bought the system with this CPU in December of 2012, so it was released definitely earlier than that.

still survive even though it's been 5 years of use

Some games working better with that processor
