Unbeatable for the price!

  • Summary: I bought this chip for a budget gaming build and I am very impressed with the capabilities of this processor vs its price. It's on par with the 4th gen i3 yet it has a very modest price of about $56. Rated at a 6.9 in the windows experience index. Coupled with the right graphics card you can play the latest games at high specs/resolution without any problems. Loading screens may take longer compared to an i5/i7.

  • Summary: This is a good processor but a little slow but faster than my DG33 FB, why I made the purchase. Heatsink comes with thermal paste already on it so you don't have to fool with that, what a relief. For video processing I don't think this is the processor to get but for my needs, working with photos and internet, it is fine. I haven't found the image trails with this processor that I had with the DG33 FB, when moving the image around.

A cheap, low power, sufficient processor

  • Summary: While this is obviously insufficient for heavy computing tasks, I've put it into a medium level gaming system, and it zips right through the difficulties of home computer use. It plays 1080p video, keeps the framerate of dwarf fortress up, and generally seems to handle the stuff I've thrown at it. Unless you're doing high resolution media editing (photoshop, sony vegas, etc) a bigger processor is probably not much use to you.

  • Summary: Great processor for a storage server. Plenty of power, never gets over 40% on freenas with 16GB+ worth of storage.

  • Summary: i was originally going to get an i5 processor and i took advantage of sale prices at the time but due to shipping difficulties i didnt receive it and got a refund. so i opted for this and it is great for the small price. this wont get you blazingly fast speeds but it is decent but dont expect full performance as it WILL bottle neck performance parts but it will suffice i give it my approval

Just needed an adiquate cpu to go with mainboard replacement / Windows 7

BetaGeek320, Amazon

  • Summary: Wanted to upgrade to a motherboard with newer features, and have a stable platform for Win 7 install. I'm not a gamer or PC gear-head, so why spend money a lot of money on a processor? With the video card I have, it should work fine for most of my apps.

Low-cost powerhouse.

sweller, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: This is a very cost-effective alternative to a Core I3. The performance specs are very close to that of the I3-3210, which is considerably more expensive. This is actually overkill for my purpose. A Celeron would have done the job, but for the small difference in price, the kick in performance is well worth it. At the time I purchased it, it was $63. I think this might be one of Intel's best bargain processors.
