packs a lot of power for older cpus

Realy happy with it. For an old system of 5th years it still gaming very well.


9 months ago.

used this for 9-10 years i think - still going strong with SSD - Win 10 start time under 15s, no issues.

still using in gaming in 2018! is an ol' good guy now!

Ive has mine for 7 years and it is still quick enough for all but the newest games


2 years ago.

still powerful cpu which allows me play all new 3xA projects


6 days ago.

That CPU didn't even have SSE4.1 nor SSSE3 when it was released back in 2010, lol. Any Core 2 Duo or Quad from 2007 feature both of these instruction sets.

have this phenom II x6 since 2011 and still running like a champ, good in gaming and programs 3D


2 years ago.

Even 2017, one of the best CPU 6 cores ever tested, the integer speed in overclock can deal versus i7 6700k in multicore, but as it's pretty old the float point speed is so pour, but it's really good to work virtual machines, programing, even rendering in most cases, gaming and streaming better than an A10 6800k for example

I can't believe how long this thing has lasted me (build is 7 years old, and I don't think it was just released then). Along the way, having 16GB RAM and component upgrades (GPU currently a 970, added some SSDs) have kept it useful. It's definitely time to upgrade, as it's starting to struggle. Finally. Now. In 2018. Of note: one thing that has kept it going so long is (carefully!!) vacuuming out its heatsink, removing all the crap accumulated between the vanes (which act as an insulator). It's also in a dust-filtered case. All in all, I've gotten my money's worth and then some out of this chip.
