Summary: I do get angry when Intel treats customers like an ATM, without keeping innovation moving at an acceptable pace. Due notice Intel, I remember the Pentium 4 and what it felt like to have a monopoly then, and I am starting to feel like that now.
Pros: Solid CPU for almost all applications. Performance across most workloads is good and unless you have a specialized use or wish to have "The Fastest", then this chip should suit you for a couple years.
Cons: Non-unlocked CPUs are an obvious money grubbing scheme by Intel. Something that wouldn't happen if they had a direct competitor in the high end market. Its one thing to tier price and performance with the same architecture for ease of development and ROI, but then attaching a premium still just t...
Summary: I don't know how the CPU functions yet, but the heatsink failed to seat properly. The directions have no words, just uninformative pictures. Intel video was for a different design, so there is no real instruction on how to install the heatsink.
Summary: This is a nice processor with lots of power and integrated GPU, but Intel does not make MS Vista video drivers for the integrated Intel HD 4600 graphics. Therefore you are limited to the Standard VGA drivers and cannot use any of the GPU power of the Haswell design.
Summary: The item was ordered on 7th June and received on the next working day, which is very good. Product is made in Costa Rica. The descriptions - "84W" and "Haswell" are no where to be seen on the product/ package received. The factory seal is not something that could be called as fool proof.
Summary: Muy decepcionado por el rendimiento de este procesador. He montado un nuevo PC con este procesador, y comparado con el anterior que venía usando (del 2008) la diferencia que noto creo que es más achacable a la mejor memoria RAM que a un procesado de mayor gama y con 6 años más de desarrollo.
Summary: Die Leistung ist super ABER der Kühler und die Wärmeleitpaste sind beide für die Tonne. Der Prozessor hat im Leerlauf schon über 40 Grad wenn ich ein Spiel starte dann ist die Hölle los dann springt die Temperatur schnell auf 85-90 Grad.....
