I didn't know what I was missing, my computer has an SSD and a R7260X, and it boots from cold in 4-5secs! Installing programs are so fast I can no longer let one install and walk away, it's always there waiting ON ME!
Skyrim (with Mods) Max! Blacklight Max! Neverwinter Max! Warface Max! Sniper Elite v3 Max! Minecraft 200-300fps Max!
It also Multitasks like a Beast!, VirtBox with LMint16 (with a few webpages open and widgets), 5 YT videos, FarCry3 and SEv3, Photoshop, Adobe Audition, Record with OBS, and Render a Video with WMM = AT THE SAME TIME!
If you are gaming you will not be disappointed; Rendering Videos/Serious Video Editing (while it can pretty fast) an i7 would be better if that is your main focus. But if you want a good all rounder while saving $100+ bucks, this guy is your guy!
See, the complicating factor is what you're doing with your computer. and I can't possibly cover every usage scenario. This CPU is powerful enough to game on (though CPUs aren't a bottleneck for gaming, for the most part), multitasking is a breeze for this baby, it runs efficiently (which is the only reason to consider Intel over AMD), and... Well, that's about all I can say. She works like a charm, but its up to you to determine if she's the charm you need. And that's the real problem with the i5 CPUs... It's not simple to say who they're for.
That said, this CPU is great, and has no real drawbacks. If you don't need overclocking, you're not on a budget, and you don't need hyperthreading (and let's be honest, most PC builders don't), this is the best value CPU.
From a value standpoint, the Pentiums were the best for most games, but from a "need" standpoint, it became clear that it was not getting the job done anymore. .
Speaking of meeting needs, this CPU is specifically listed as meeting the recommended specifications for VR. I expect this to be able to handle VR titles for the next 4-5 years because the cost of VR 'sets is so high that they are treating development of VR games like they are developing for a set platform (like a console). The foundation of that platform is THIS processor (or any of its 4-core equivalents). I expect that they will not increase the recommended hardware for about the typical length of time for a modern platform lifecyle (ie PS2,PS3,PS4) - a lifecycle which is currently 4-5 years.
Finally, after the upgrade, The GTX 660 is now the bottleneck in my wife's system. No more stuttering and the CPU runs cool and quiet and never surpasses about 55% load in fallout4. My biggest factor in getting this CPU was that I already had the motherboard because it was an upgrade, but this is also the best value CPU in the U.S. at this price segment. It beats anything AMD has in single-threaded performance, while still retaining a price-point that competes with AMD's high-end FX-series 8-core CPU's. Generally speaking, this beats any FX-CPU in most games (and saves $$ on the power bill).
Regardless of whether you are building from scratch or upgrading, this is a good buy.
-Fairly Cheap (great budget or entry-level card)
-Cool (Runs at about 30-50 Celsius)
-Integrated HD 4600 Graphics (work surprisingly well)
-Pretty Good Video Editing Card on a budget
This is a great processor, and it can handle just about anything you throw at it at low temperatures and high performance. In my opinion, this is well worth $200.
