Top processor had it since 2012 never let me down. Can still handle today's games.
Ever since Intel gave up on the Pentiums and the Pentium D and rebuilt their CPU under the Core architecture? Mindblowingly good. I've had the Core 2 E6600.. the Core 2 Quad Q6600... i7-920 and now this i7-3770k? WOW. Got it used off a bud hence the price. ;)
Still a relevant CPU up to this date, have not experienced any bottlenecks in any new games (GTA V, Rise of Tomb Raider, Fallout 4), does what I need it to do.
No complaints from me. This CPU has handled everything I have thrown at it. It still offers performance so great that I see no need to upgrade to Skylake and the Z170 chipset. I acquired it from Tigerdirect.com for a great price before they went out of business.
Got as a mild upgrade from an i5-2500K at some point. Happily clocked at 4.1GHz on Turbo. Happily runs VM's and holds out fairly well against newer chips.
