Not a bad CPU, even in 2019. This is basically the Xeon version of the i7-3930K. Being a Sandy Bridge E/EP CPU, it's based on the 32 nm process and I believe the die is soldered to the IHS, so thermals are kept in check fairly well. Even so, it's not the most power efficient CPU, especially by today's standards. Compared to an AMD Ryzen 5 2600/2600X or Intel Core i7-8700/8700K, it'll use a lot more electricity, but that's to be expected.
