Pros: Based on 14nm with new instruction set and fully unlocked multipliers.
Cons: Once you get past 4Ghz this chip will start to heat up which can become problematic.
Other Thoughts: Coming from X58 X5650 @ 4ghz from first glance this did not seem like a huge improvement till I got into heavy applications or gaming which I did notice an immediate improvement. If your like me you need to understand a few things coming from the older architecture like X58. One is you have core and uncore which can affect the heat output of your chip, you need to dial in your core first then work on uncore which this chip likes a 34 multiplier which I will add my results to hopefully give you all a baseline.
4Ghz @ 1.140v w/34 uncore Multiplier @ 1.125v barley broke 50c on Air
4.2Ghz @ 1.225v w/34 uncore Multiplier @ 1.125v stayed around 57c on Air
The only thing that was finicky was the DDR4 which is rated for 3000mhz didn't post rated speeds on XMP but did 2800mhz with tighter timings. I have to add that each chip has its own personality and you will just have to find its comfort zone with the silicon lottery and voltages on both core and uncore.

Pros: Its compressed air and gets the job done.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small and light weight mobile gamming solution. Put it this way I bought a back up pair because for audio quality and the durability they are second to none!
Cons: The mic is weak on voice detection, but to be honest I knew this going in with this solution.
Other Thoughts: Like stated for the price and using on a mobile gaming platform or running gear it gets the job done and has all the connectivity one could ask for.READ FULL REVIEW
