Think its a good CPU for the money, works well with my 1070ti Cerberus 8GB


Good

Way better than the older i3s that were in the old computers my school had.


Excellent

4 years ago.

Brilliant CPU for its price range if you're looking for an Intel CPU. It even has enough power to compete with some last-gen i7's (7000/8000 series). Its single core performance is amazing thanks to its 4.4GHz boost clock.
