    Awesome performance, 8 cores, 16 threads. Put it in an AM4 socket motherboard paired with lots of high speed DDR4 memory. Legendary!

    The best-valued CPU currently

    I have tried this CPU under numerous occasions for differing purposes ranging from gaming, 3d modeling, image rendering, simulation executing, and general multitasking; for the money, I have never felt like a CPU could deliver so much performance. Of course there are higher performance options like the 9th gen i7 or i9, but they come with a price that offsets their value as a result. It even comes with an RGB stock cooler and thermal solution, a much appreciated bonus to a premium yet lower priced CPU. I definitely recommend this processor to anyone looking to get into higher performance computing while not breaking their banks.

    Great performance at half the cost of Intel. Reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because I could not achieve a decent overclock. Although, there is no need to since I game at 1440p and this handles at minimum 75fps. Usually I am above 90-100fps depending on the game. Always at ultra or highest settings in game.

    I was replacing a 6 core i7 cpu and motherboard with this and have not noticed any drop in performance, but an improved performance for the tasks I use. I use Photoshop heavily, as well as premiere pro, internet, illustrator, etc. etc. and this has worked very well for workstation use.

    AMD wins the price/performance crown again! I use this cpu in my PC that is both a gaming PC and a PLEX server. I can game and record 2 live TV shows off the antenna AND stream 2-3 different recorded shows at the same time. This CPU is amazing. Utilization will vary during gameplay of course, but I tested recording 2 live tv shows and streamed 6 pre-recorded shows at the same time and never went above 25% utilized. Great Performance!

    I'm really happy that I decided to go with the 2700x as oppose to an Intel chip. The cooler works well and I'm getting great performance. Moving forward I will probably stick with an AMD processor in my GFs build

    8 cores and 16 threads, plenty of speed. I am pleased with the performance. Best Buy's price match policies made it even sweeter in the end.

    This CPU is a beast for both gaming and productivity. Great price and incredible stats for your money. Overclocks like a champ, but also comes with a decent boost mode and destroys any and all tasks you throw at it!

    Never have I had issues with this product. Performance is about or better than a top notch i7. Great for gaming and pretty much anything you throw at it. Would recommend for anyone that is on their computer a lot.

    Why buy Intel other than name?

    Honestly, AMD has made the reasons to buy intel very minimal. You get all of the performance in the place you need it for less dollars. And in some cases you get more performance than Intel. Single core applications are not quite as fast, but the gap is small enough now that there really is no benefit to Intel other than paying for a name.

    Compared to intel, this CPU is a beast. I got this during black friday for much cheaper price and it seems to run better and faster than my i7 8700k when running multimedia programs and gaming. This chip does run a bit hotter than the i7 but nothing to complaint about if you have an AIO. Overall super happy and will never buy intel CPUs again because they're so expensive for the performance compared to AMD. Now that AMD is getting more skin into the game and boosting their CPU qualities, I'm sticking with team red. As for the GPUs...well thats slightly different story. Overall this CPU is HIGHLY recommended over the intel CPUs. I built my own rig and used a Asus Hero 7 crosshair motherboard with artic silver 5 paste and with my NZXT cam software I can monitor the CPU and it runs well. I did overclock the CPU and it runs great like that too. HAPPY CUSTOMER from best buy and best buy gave me a discount on top of the sale too. Was about to get this from amazon, but best buy had the best deal and customer service.

    BEST PERFORMANCE PER VALUE

    I 150% do not regret getting this over Intel's Octa-Core i7 chip. I use this processor for my computer not for gaming but for digital renderings and CAD work. It performs effortlessly and digital models/renderings load so much faster than my previous Intel Xeon processor. Sometimes high price doesn't always mean matching performance. This CPU proves that that is the case. The cooler fan that it comes with is also pretty, not that I really care about the LEDs as this is for my workstation.

    Moving to AMD now. Price is right and performance is great. Built my own PC so I researched the chips and made the switch. Cheaper than Intel with comparable performance. All you need is this for a high end gaming rig. Installing on the mobo (Asus Crosshair x470) was easy. I did not use the included fan, and instead went with a Corsair liquid cooler and that connected easy. If you need a new CPU, look closely at this one. Read the reviews from the PC gaming sites with the charts and comparisons. You'll likely go AMD.
