— Of course the lower clock and turbo along with no ability to overclock isn't great, but if you snag this CPU at a fair or lower price than the MSRP it's an extremely good choice. It struggles a lick or so with Assassins Creed Odyssey but that is all on Ubisoft for having such bad optimization. That does not mean I cannot run almost all settings on high or very high/ultra but there are odd spots with frame drops due to heavy CPU usage in that game...... With its 8 cores and 8 threads it handles Doom Eternal and RDR2 flawlessly though. If you find the K series for roughly the same price grab it, but if this guy is part of a bundle or on sale, you wont be disappointed with it when it comes to gaming or consumer desktop activities and a little beyond. It may be on its way out with the low clock speed by 2021 however, even with 8 cores and threads! I use Intel's XTU to force the turbo on for a longer duration and with a good air cooler it does not go above 60C, give or take another degree, so no power or thermal throttling at all! All around I would say this CPU is good but not outstanding. If it was unlocked that would be another story but would create mean the K series is even closer in specs, although it having a lower clock and turbo would still have made the K series a viable option and Intel could do away with this locked mumbo jumbo...

The Best.
