    This CPU is a beast for the price. It seems to effortlessly chew through file compression. It handles multi-device multi-tasking quite well too (i.e. playing a movie, gaming, receiving a smartphone backup dump and compressing it; all at the same time). I would recommend it as a cheaper alternative to an i7. A couple of notes about Xeons; the E3 series is comparable to an i7 of the same generation (e.g. E3 V3 is Haswell, V2 is Ivy Bridge), none are unlocked for overclocking, and many of them don’t have an IGPU (nomenclature ending in 0 or 1). I point out the lack of IGPU for gamers that also record their sessions. Intel quick sync video requires the IGPU, and can be quite helpful for video encoding.

    Affordable 'entry' CPU in terms of the 4-core, hyperthreaded (HT) realm, good for those needing multithreaded horsepower in a pinch. Performs admirably (it is basically a HT Haswell i5!). To whom it may concern, this does not have an integrated GPU.
