Multithreaded monster, very pleased 12/08/2012
Fast. Wonderfully fast. Perfect price point for 3D enthusiasts, and people looking to run high workload home servers.
For around 200 dollars per CPU, you could build a blindingly fast home renderfarm on a shoestring budget.
Haven't overclocked it yet, and performance on the server is faster than our last 2600K @ 4.5GHz. Very surprised, very impressed.
This is a tough as nails CPU not built for gamers, but for enthusiasts and heavily multithreaded tasks.
Great, cheap power.
High power usage. Not even close to cause alarm, just higher than the average right now, pre-overclocking.
Still a "pinned" socket. I prefer the pads on the Intel's.
Very pleased with AMD this time around, for the first time in a long time. They have a real contender here. This is a quality, fairly priced product that will last, and shine as more and more software takes advantage of multithreading. If you're a gamer, you might be wise to look elsewhere, however, I somehow doubt you would be disappointed.
