CPU - AMD

The CPU (Central Processing Unit) or processor, is arguably the most important component in a computer. It's responsible for processing instructions and controlling the other components. Many CPUs include basic on-board graphics too so you can power a display without needing a separate graphics card. AMD's new performance Ryzen processors offer a wide range of models suited to different tasks and budgets. Low-end, dual-core chips can be had for £25 or even less, but are only well-matched to basic tasks, while high-end Ryzen CPUs are multi-core, high-frequency monsters that can tear through the world's most intensive software. Before buying, ensure you've got a compatible motherboard and a cooler that can take the heat.

AMD Ryzen 5 2000 Series Socket AM4 Processors

AMD Ryzen 7 2000-series processors are 2nd generation AMD CPUs based on the Zen+ architecture. Featuring 6 physical cores plus a further 6 virtual cores courtesy of SMT technology Ryzen 7 CPUs deliver excellent performance in multithreaded applications such as video encoding and with new and improved Precision Boost 2 they also perform great in lightly threaded software such as games as well. As long as you have a compatible motherboard and sufficient cooling you can further boost the performance of these processors by overclocking too.

These CPUs are compatible with all Socket AM4 motherboards, but older motherboards may require a BIOS update before the CPU is installed.
