very good for gaming,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am primarily using this cpu to play games of all types at the highest settings - I have not used it for any CAD use.
This plays everything very smoothly - from games like skyrim to fps games such as CoD or Battlefield. I have had no hiccups or lag issues in the slightest.
I am using it in conjunction with a 7850 graphics card and 16gb or crucial ram. I would highly recommend this cpu for gaming.
I purchased this cpu after looking at reviews comparing it with the i7. Whilst the i7s apparently provide better processing power for highly intensive CAD programmes it apparently makes very little/no difference in performance on a variety of games.
