This processor is almost 4 years old and it still holds up against brand new models.
Have had this CPU since my first build in 2012 and it is still doing perfectly fine up till this day. I have OCed it up to 4.6GHz stable with a little bit of an overvolt and it still performs great. Especially since Intel's newer CPUs have only been getting marginally faster, for gaming alone, there will not be much of a difference between this CPU and newer CPUs.
