Somebody wiped an over 10 year old HPE with this i7-930 and then gave it to me on Nextdoor a few years ago. I slapped it with Win 10 and 20 GB and there you go. Very nice! This bad boy is much faster than any of my other 4 newer processors.

i buy it in 2010 My bench With a brilliant single core score, this CPU is the business: It demolishes everyday tasks such as web browsing, office apps and audio/video playback. Additionally this processor can handle very light workstation, and even some very light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 80.7%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is very good.

Don't be fooled by the "i7" name. It performs like a Core 2 Quad with Hyperthreading. Overall performance is fine, but the processor is so insanely power hungry that your power bill will actually take a small hit. Similar to FX processors, it is a glorified space heater with bad IPC.
