— The best I can about this is that it's 'okay' meaning that it's speedy enough for most everyday tasks but when you need something for media creation, editing or gaming the rather slow read and write speeds ( 1,100Mbs & 980Mbs) do get noticed. This is based on the Intel 7600P enterprise SSD if you want to be able to research more om it. This does leave me in the hunt for something faster especially in terms of write speed, it's strength is in 4K reads, somewhat snappier than most NMVe SSD's.

Hard Drives

— This HHD came in my pre-built system new in the middle of 2018 but it's history goes back to 2011 with just 64MB Cache and is rather clunky in terms of speed especially in the write department, I use it as my secondary drive holding my media content and has me looking for faster alternatives. On the bright side it does operate very quietly, something that usually is compromised once you start getting into larger HDD's from the rotations generated.

Nvidia
GTX 1080 - Good 2 years ago.
Graphics Cards

— This does an excellent job for those in the media creation, and editing department, excellent compute scores and does extremely well on my 4K HDR display, if I were to upgrade the Nvidia RTX 2080 actually has lower computer scores but renders faster, therefore would consider the 2080-ti over it, that said if you already own it no point of looking to upgrade considering this dies an excellent job.

Intel
Core i7-8700K - Excellent 2 years ago.
Processors

— Has to be the best desktop processor ever used, extremely fast and is overclockable making tasks even zippier. Would like to have seen more PCI lanes to accommodate MNVe storage, seems to stay within specs as far as temperature goes and still holds ground to some resource heavy tasks making it worthy to spend your money on.

The Best.
