Category:
The Central Processing Unit (CPU) or (micro) processor is the part of a computer where most calculations take place. In terms of computing power, the processor is the most important element of a computer system, so the performance of a computer is highly dependant on the performance of the processor. For quite some time the performance of a processor has been determined by the number of MHz the clock speed was, but nowadays clock speed doesn't have so much to do with the speed of the processor anymore. One of the best ways to compare different kinds of processors, is to look up benchmarks on the internet. Please be careful to buy a processor that is compatible with your motherboard, i.e. fits in the right socket.

It's been almost eleven years since Intel released its first quad-core desktop CPU, the glued-together Core 2 Quad Q6600, and what a glorious processor it was. The 65nm quad-core chip operated at 2.4 GHz, but back then boost clocks weren't a thing and CPU...

To say 2017 has been a busy year for desktop-PC processors would be an understatement the size of Texas—or at least, Oregon. The best way to sum it all up might be to say, simply: In 2017, you'll get more cores (and more threads) for your CPU dollar than...
Good 50 percent more cores and threads (and higher boost clocks) than previous-gen mainstream chips, Best gaming performance we've seen at 1080p, when paired with a GTX 1080, Consistently tops AMD's similarly priced Ryzen 7 1700X...

Bottom line So I think most people will admit that AMD has had a lot of wins this year with all of the Ryzen launches. As I found out in our 1700v7700K coverage the 7700K was still a great performing CPU, especially when looking at gaming performance. But with ju...

Intel's new i7-9700K is available for about $400 to $430, which lands it between the 9900K – priced at around $550, on a good day – and the 8700K's $370 price-point. We got ours for $400, looking to test the new 8C/8T CPU versus the not-that-old 8700K and...
Bottom line The Intel i7-9700K received ample criticism at unveil for being the first “gaming,” S-class i7 in recent history to drop hyperthreading. The move was accompanied by an increase in physical core count to 8C, but followed the previous move from 4C/8T to 6C/...

Bottom line By name and by marketing, the i5 CPU is most comparable to the R5 CPUs. The R5 2600's current $160 price-point makes it a less direct comparison, and the 2600X, which would perform about where an overclocked 2600 performs, is about $220. This is also che...

Bottom line Having established that the Core i7-8700K is hands down faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X for gaming, it's also not a great deal faster. Realistically at 1080p with a beastly graphics card you'll stand to gain up to 15% performance at the high-end, but will m...

Bottom line The R3 2200G offers highly competitive performance at its price and, ultimately, really has no immediate competition. At $100, the CPU offers 78-85% of the performance of the R5 2400G at 58% of the price. Not bad at all. We can strongly recommend the R3 2...
