The BEST desktop processor

Andrew R., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Pros: I can sweat this thing.... I left it stock (no overclocking) and even running GNS3, VM Workstation 10 and about a dozen virtual machines, virtual switches, routers, firewalls, and load balancers I barely got above 33% utilization. on a normal day teh thing is barely registering. Running games it barely blips even when on high settings (yeah I know most of that has to do with video cards) but I don't dedicate a card to physics so .. take that for what its worth.
  • Cons: Its not really a con but Price. honestly if your dropping 1K on a CPU you are probably not worried about this.

Still #1 for Video Encoding

David W., Newegg
27 March 2013
  • Pros: Been running this chip at near 100% for 6-15 hour stretches for a year now while producing my videos, and have NEVER had an overheat or restart. Transcodes in real time H.264 on my setup.
  • Cons: none, resell value once it is outdated might be a disappointment, something I always think about when buying for my production.

The fastest, but not worth it.

Mark & Tree, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: True, this CPU is one of the fastest on the market right now, but that doesn't mean it's worth it. First of all, I would not recommend this for any type of gamer, casual or hardcore. The integrated graphics are good, but you'll see very little performance difference between this processor and any other top notch Intel processor. Gamers would get much more bang for their buck by investing in a pricey GPU such as the GTX 680.
