I bought this about 10 months ago, and although I'm about to upgrade to an I9, this thing has got held up with my all my Adobe software, running 3 screens, playing VR and other games. The only struggle I had is it's 6 cores, 6 threads, as I have a lot of programs that run in the background for backup and storage purposes. If you need an Intel CPU, but are only using it for 1440p and under gaming, this CPU holds up quite well.
What can I say? It's a top of the line consumer version chip. The performance upgrade over my old setup is INSANE! Pushes my VR like a champ, and was really easy to install and configure. Easily the best chip on the market right now.
