What is an AMD Processor or CPU?

Serving as the brain of any PC, the Central Processing Unit, or the CPU, is one of the most important components to consider when buying or building a new desktop PC. Proving that Intel isn’t the only option for desktop users, AMD has brought stern competition to the marketplace with the launch of its award-winning Ryzen processors.

The AMD CPU Range Explained

There are several models in the AMD CPU range, starting with Ryzen Threadripper family at the top of the range, then moving through the Ryzen 9, 7 and 5 families to the entry-level with the Ryzen 3 and Athlon series of CPUs.



The Zen 3 architecture can extract an average of 19% additional performance from every MHz of frequency relative to the previous Zen 2 generation. This a historically large generational improvement in IPC, and a major player in the architecture’s ability to deliver unmatched single-core performance.



Precision Boost 2 automatically raises processor frequencies for supercharged performance when you need it most. Additionally, Precision Boost Overdrive uses your motherboard’s robust design to boost clock speeds higher and longer, and lets you overclock at the touch of a button.



Every AMD Ryzen processor is multiplier-unlocked from the factory so you can optimise performance. Ryzen Master is an easy to use Windows application providing quick and easy control of every aspect of your Ryzen CPU.



PCIe 4.0 provides twice the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0, speeding up compatible graphics cards and SSDs for a superior gaming and content creation experience.



AMD StoreMI technology is a powerful tool for PC enthusiasts that want to improve load times, boot times, file management and or system responsiveness. StoreMI caches your most-used files from the slow HDD to an SSD of your choosing, leaving the original copy intact - thus improving access times.
