    "Intel's book technology and 10 cores really helps to make this Intel Core i9 processor the best I've used for VR. Definitely take a closer look at it if you're in the market, a step up for sure from the previous generation."

    "While this processor was incredible in 2014, it's now dated and has been overtaken by quite a few processors. The new crown currently goes to the highly rated Intel i7-8700k. And the weird thing is, the 5820K is more expensive than the newer, better, 8700k. If you want the best VR experience available, the Intel i7-8700k is what you should be installing in your tower. "
