20 Year IT Pro Review
Reviewed in the United States on June 3, 2020
To start, I'm not going to hit you with all the spec data. Plenty of sites for that kind of measurement. I'm going to tell you, being a 20 year IT professional, this is a solid processor. I replaced a Xeon E3-1225 with this processor. Even coming from a Xeon for productivity and virtualization, this is a solid upgrade. My system is stable, performs faster, programs execute faster, and my VMs within my labs operate far more efficiently and provide the fast operation requires for a IT professional. If you are considering the 10600, then this is worth the consideration if you're in the productivity space. If you're in the overclock gaming space, then, no, this processor isn't the best option out there. However, it is reasonably priced, has some good mainboard support options, and I even ported over my RAM from my 4+ year old Xeon system without any problems.
So, this is not the MOST economic processor. However, its relatively economic, stable, has good hardware support options, and provides a solid improvement over prior generation Intel products. Point is, if you're looking to buy a solid CPU, this is a good bet.
If you're looking to overclock the thing into a lava pit in your tower, just go elsewhere and don't give negative reviews when YOU are the one out of spec.
