Bought it 10+ years ago, and it's still going strong. Great value for sure.

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.

just need to upgrade my gpu and my pc will go super fast I ran the test while I was transferring something so it showd slow results


Poor

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.
