CPU - AMD

The CPU is the central processing unit, literally the central component in a computer. It's responsible for processing instructions and controlling the other components. Many include basic on-board graphics processors too so you can power a display without needing a separate graphics card. Intel and AMD rule the desktop processor market, and each has 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 the high-end is home to 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 7 Socket AM4 Processors

AMD Ryzen 7 processors are the first of the new generation of AMD CPUs based on the Zen architecture. Featuring 8 physical cores plus a further 8 virtual cores curtesy of SMT technology Ryzen 7 CPUs deliver excellent performance in multithreaded applications such as video encoding. As long as you have a compatible motherboard and sufficient cooling you can further boost the performance of these processors by overclocking too.
