because it performes near to the i9 9900K when it is overlocked to 4,7GHZ. With 5 GHZ it would be marginal slower and it is over three years old

I have been using this beast for a long time. Overclocked at 4.5ghz this is still an excellent cpu today!


2 years ago.

8 cores for x79, and OCs too.

Benches between 1700x and 2700x, gives current chips a good run when clocked (stable) at 4.7 under a H80 AIO water loop. Definitely not ready to retire with this performance.
