All CPU Processors

The processor is one of the most important components in a modern computer. The term processor, CPU, ‘brain’ and chip generally refer to the central processing unit. Every action and command your PC does depends on interaction with the CPU so its performance is crucial to the overall computer experience. Today comparing processors is no longer about finding the highest speed processor possible in MHz or GHz. To get the best performance you need to take into account the whole specification of the processor including the number of cores it has, system bus speed and the amount of cache to work out its performance.

How do I know what Processor is right for me?

What is a processor? The processor is one of the most important components in a modern computer. The term processor, CPU, ‘brain’ and chip generally refer to the central processing unit. Every action and command your PC does depends on interaction with the CPU so its performance is crucial to the overall computer experience. What do I need to look for in a processor? There are thousands of different processors available so it is understandable to not be certain about how the different models compare in performance and which one is right for you. Not that long ago comparing processors was very easy. A higher rated megahertz processor would make a faster PC, for example a 733MHz processor would make a faster PC than a 600MHz processor. As processor speeds have increased into the gigahertz (1000MHz is equivalent to 1GHz) range manufacturers have had to introduce confusing naming schemes. It is often harder to understand the naming scheme that Intel and AMD use than the technologies behind the processor! Today comparing processors is no longer about finding the highest speed processor possible in MHz or GHz. To get the best performance you need to take into account the whole specification of the processor including the number of cores it has, system bus speed and the amount of cache to work out its performance. It all sounds rather daunting but once you understand the principles you can easily compare models. Here is a brief list of what the specifications mean: Clock Speed: Usually listed in Mhz (Megahertz) or GHz (Gigahertz) this used to be the primary indicator of processor speed, although in recent years this has become less important. Both Intel and AMD have invested huge amounts of money in developing their processors to maximise the output of each and every clock cycle and in doing so they have made the actual clock speed less important. A 1000MHz processor today is approximately 17% faster than the previous generation when you compare Intel’s first generation i5 processors to their second generation.
