I have a 10400 and this is much faster. Especially for multitasking. Can't wait to see what the 7000G's bring.

I built a new PC and at the time video cards were unreasonably expensive. The integrated GPU on this CPU runs games well even in Linux.

Haven't yet built the new computer so things are still in limbo. Do not particularly like the Stealth Cooler that came with it so I have a new Prism cooler on hand to use it once built. All arrived well and intact and I'm sure the Processor will work fine. Always felt one can never have too much cooling especially when it comes to processors.

Is it compatible with the Gigabyte B550 Vision D-P motherboard without a BIOS update ?
Asked by: Greg
Run your build through the pcpartpicker (.com) website and it will let you know which BIOS version you need. To be fair, I believe that board has the flashback button so you can upgrade and downgrade with or w/o a CPU installed.
